January 2023 PM Update from Madrid

The PMI Madrid Chapter attended the PMI Global Summit 2022 in Las Vegas

The PMI Madrid Chapter president, Jesús Vázquez and two members of the Board of Directors (Carlos Pampliega and Raúl García) attended the PMI Global Summit in Las Vegas and the “Leadership Meeting” where they shared their experiences in the management of the Chapter.

In addition, I had the opportunity to photograph myself with them at the end of my presentation with Randall L. Englund (Sharpening your influence Skills to be a Complete Project Manager).

I am proud that several Spanish colleagues attended the PMI Global Summit this year and understand the great value of learning, sharing and exchanging project management experiences. The PMI Madrid Chapter that was constituted in 2002 now has a new president very committed to the operations of the International Chapter. The comment “it was worth coming” was a common comment by all attendees. The variety of countries represented at the Summit was sixteen.

I had the opportunity to chat for a few minutes with the new PMI CEO who showed his intention to lead PMI down the path of adding value to project managers and listening to their needs.
