Continuing from last month’s report about the Leadership Seminar event in the beautiful state of Mendoza – Argentina, I’ll dedicate this edition to describe the PMI Southern Latin-American leadership meeting that took place in Mendoza with great success considering the number of participants and the quality of their presentations.

On Friday April 10th, a Regional Meeting of Leaders of PMI Region 13 Southern Latin America took place at Diamandes Winery in the Valle de Uco, Mendoza. In that paradise framed by vineyards and mountains, was achieved a record call of more than 70 regional leaders, about three times the average amount of assistance to such events.

The first lecture of the day was presented by Eduardo Braun who, as in his “Seminar Leadership in Times of Crisis” the previous day, spoke about the importance of culture in leadership, illustrated through his interesting interviews with key international leaders.

Stephen Townsend, Director of Global Alliances & Networks of PMI Global Operations Center who, accompanied by Joseph Falu, PMI Chapter Administrator was the next lecture of the day, introduced the new leaders to the world of Global PMI and commented on current strategies for the Institute and projects that are being developed.
