Speaker Application

Thank you for your interest in being a part of our movement to help PMO leaders make a big IMPACT with the PMO!

Before I started PMO Strategies 6 years ago, I spent 15 years as an employee “on the inside” building, running, and rescuing PMOs for companies. I know just how hard it can be to not just survive, but THRIVE in that role. But, as you and I both know, it is totally doable.

We’ve discovered approaches that we know work and I would love to come together to share your knowledge and experience with the world, alongside your fellow industry experts.

This Summit will help us make a much needed shift with PMOs, both in the eyes of the PMO leader, as well as the executives hoping to leverage the PMO to drive IMPACT.  Together, we can ensure that every PMO leader is positioned to THRIVE, not simply survive, and that business leaders understand and value the contributions the PMO can make to IMPACT realization.

We have added new topics and subject areas this year and expect to reach thousands of PMO leaders and those wanting to make a big IMPACT with project management.

If you cannot meet that deadline to do your recording, just let us know in your application. We are planning future events and if we can’t schedule you in time now, we can plan for a future event.


Prepare Your Presentation

You will be provided a PMO IMPACT Summit powerpoint template if you are doing a presentation. If you are doing an interview, you’ll just need to be able to connect to our zoom recording with a webcam on your phone or computer.
