Successful PMI Congress celebrated in Madrid – PMI Madrid Spain Chapter

On November 14th, 2019, the PMI Madrid Spain Chapter celebrated the PMI Global 50th Anniversary in Madrid at FAUNIA. Around 200 PMI Madrid Chapter members joined the “XVI Congreso de Directores de Proyecto”. In that meeting we counted on some important guests like (Roberto Toledo (México) as PMI Board of Directors member), Betsy Kauffman from USA, Leadership and Organizational Agility Coach, and Paul Villacorta from Peru, former President for PMI Lima Peru Charter.

Paul Villacorta delivered an interactive session to present the BLUE OCEAN Methodology to the audience. All the attendees were engaged and enjoyed that session very much. Betsy also delivered a dynamic presentation about AGILE implementation, that also was well received by the audience.

The event was a success in terms of attendance and we had the opportunity to chat with Roberto Toledo, who, as usual, delivered a brilliant PMI’s story presentation, that generated some interesting questions from the attendees.

At this event was recognized as, volunteer of the year, Manuel Felipe Pérez because his great dedication and effort as a PMI volunteer during 2018. He was awarded with a free registration and travel to PMI EMEA Congress in June 2020.
