About the speaker:

Dane Pelfrey, PMP

Dane Pelfrey headshot

Dane Pelfrey will share tips, tricks, trials and tribulations of a twenty year journey from Business Analyst to Project Manager to CIO with all the stops in between. Participants will learn valuable skills in:

  • Stakeholder communications - leading technical decision making, and use of ROI to transform IT Service Delivery
  • Leadership - leading teams with expert knowledge and limitless employment options
  • Prioritization - B2B customer communications when you have Facebook, Tesla, Southwest Airlines, and Lenovo as anchor tenants
  • Teambuilding – bringing together both small and large teams with technical egos and agendas


During this lively, direct, behind-the-scenes session, you'll come away with practical approaches and tools you can immediately put to action. Dane has worked for start-ups, mom & pops, Fortune 50s, and companies of all sizes in industries as varied as healthcare, mortgage, property-casualty insurance, public policy, financial services, and even some bureaus in DC he really can't discuss.

If you deliver projects in the real world, with real world problems and personalities, this is a session for you.
