Project Management Update from Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina


As I mentioned in the previous issue, on April 10th and 11th, we had a Regional Meeting of PMI Latin America South Leaders in Mendoza, Argentina, which exceeded all expectations, both in terms of quantity of attendees, over 70 volunteers from the PMI Chapters of Region 13 South, as well as the quality of the event, which received international speakers.

The team of volunteers from PMI Nuevo Cuyo Chapter, led by Gustavo Albera, Project Manager of the event and Past President of the Chapter, has been the host of the meeting of leaders and decided to include a leadership seminar for executives on the agenda, which was facilitated by the expert Eduardo Braun and that was held on Thursday April 9th.

Eduardo Braun’s Seminar entitled “Lessons in Leadership in Times of Crisis” was held at the Bodega Vistalba, about 20 kilometers from the city of Mendoza, in a beautiful vineyards landscape. It has had the participation of 70 persons among which 50 were entrepreneurs and senior executives of Mendoza´s companies who had never heard about PMI or project management, so this seminar has become an excellent introduction letter.

Eduardo Braun, founder of “Management TV”, famous channel signal transmitted through Latin America, reaching 14 million households and 25 countries, shared the secrets of leadership style from successful global celebrities of business and how they overcame moments of crisis.
