If you've been getting helpful articles forwarded to you from your network recently, it might just be that your network learned something at the PMI Central Iowa Chapter January lunch meeting on Making & Building & Maintaining Connections, or perhaps at the joint networking workshop on Breaking Into the Field of Project Management held in conjunction with Your Clear Next Step before the chapter meeting.
Sinikka Waugh from Your Clear Next Step and Lynn Reed from the PMI Central Iowa Chapter spent the morning preparing a room of future project managers to take the next step towards entering the profession. After successfully elevating the career trajectories of the workshop attendees, Sinikka and Lynn launched them immediately into a networking opportunity at the chapter meeting. Workshop attendees and chapter members enjoyed the opportunity to make connections while Sinikka shared a wheelbarrow of golden wisdom nuggets on the subject of Making & Building & Maintaining Connections. It was a wonderful opportunity to start off the year with a strong emphasis on networking and career growth. One member even walked away with a free copy of the "Sixth Edition Project Management Body Of Knowledge" bundled with the Agile Practice Guide!
