What Attendees Say:

Thanks, June, for your excellent presentation addressing the critical business management skills that are essential to successful project management.

All too often we see folks who are under the impression that  competent architects and engineers are, by definition, competent project managers. It's important to understand that those design skills actually represent the lower rungs on the ladder to highly-skilled project management.

Your emphasis on time and people management, as well as discipline and professionalism in the financial aspects of projects, ranging from fee development to collections, was spot-on.

I know that it was a valuable reality check for our up-and-coming project managers and a healthy refresher for our firm leaders. Thank you!
