Last month, was held in Argentina a very important event for the project management community. PMI Nuevo Cuyo Chapter organized its PM DAY called “Jornadas Cuyanas 2013”, held in the cities of Mendoza and San Luis, with lectures and workshops presented by recognized speakers, sharing experiences and good project management practices applied to different projects in Latin America, and I was glad to be part of both of these events that enrich our profession.

During the session in Mendoza on June 5th, after the opening and welcome words of Mr. Jorge Moreno, Past President of PMI Nuevo Cuyo Chapter, Mr. Carlos Calderaro shared the lesson learned with the project of the “Vertedero GATUN” of the Panama Canal.

Mr. Victor Orellana Acuña from Chile shared his experience with a lecture about “Challenging and Successful Projects”, talking about the project of remodeling the World Soccer Women’s Championship Stadiums in Chile.

We also had the opportunity of learning from Mr. Mauricio Garay and Mr. Carlos Gonzalez, the Application of PMI Practices to the Construction Project of the Hotel, Resort & SPA, Vines of Mendoza, Tunuyan, Mendoza”.

Closing the day, I had the pleasure of facilitating a workshop about Leadership and Interpersonal Relationship to the Project Team and I was amazed about the great interest and participation of the attendees, showing the growing importance that project management professionals give to soft skills in our country.
