2019 Professional Development Days (PDD) and Symposium Day

Professional Development Days (PDD):

PMI Minnesota PDD Days is one of the nation's premier Project Management conferences held at the Saint Paul, MN RiverCentre. It is a four-day conference from September 23rd through 26th, 2019 (8am - 5pm). PDD Days features educational speakers, keynote speakers, event vendors, and networking opportunities with fellow project management professionals across several industries from throughout the midwest.

Over the first three days, Education Days offers a host of classes in half-day, one-day, and two-day lengths covering topics such as: diverse as emotional intelligence, team cohesion, culture change, accountable leadership, risk, innovation, and the list goes on. A three day PMI-PMP® certification prep bootcamp awards attendees 24 education hours and the dedicated time to dive into the learning needed to successfully pass the exam and earn certification. And this year we’ve continued with our new practice of providing endnote speakers at the end of the day to challenge your thinking!

Symposium Day:
Our Symposium Day offers a range of 24 one-hour sessions where you can mix and match from various tracks on areas, such as: Leadership, Strategy, Technical Skills, Change, Applied PM, and Agile. Do you need to know more about leveraging change or making generational differences work? Or are you curious about servant leadership and organizational project management? These are just a few of the topics from which you can choose.

· Change
