Monthly PMI Madrid Chapter Meeting at Microsoft in Madrid (Spain) 

On January 27th happened the monthly PMI Madrid Chapter meeting where joined 80 professionals on site and 175 professionals online through Webex software . The monthly PMI Madrid Chapter meetings started in 2010 with only 4 or 5 attendees. The persistence from the respective Board of Directors over the years, and the continuity of those meetings were the vehicles for that achievement.

This time the keynote Speakers were Amanda Palazón, Change Management specialist and president of IMM, who spoke about the importance of leadership skills to manage a Change Management project, and Alfonso Bucero, BUCERO PM Consulting who spoke about “How to develop the project manager influence” based on his last book “The Influential Project Manager” (published by CRC in the US).

After that meeting there was a cocktail where all the attendees had the opportunity to talk to the speakers, asking them questions and making comments. That meeting, the second on this year, was sponsored by Microsoft Spain in their offices at Pozuelo (La Finca).
