Event is tomorrow, 1 March 2017, featuring MSPM alumna Natalya Bah, CEO (Natalya Bah Consulting); Alan Zucker, PM Director (Fannie Mae); and Dr. Alan Zeitoun, President (PM Solutions).
Launched in November 2016, the University PM Talks is an expansion of PMIWDC programming and is supported by both the GWMSPM and GWPMA. The goal is to bring chapter events to the students and young professionals in the DC area on a quarterly basis. Event is free to MSPM students and offers “PM TED talks” style: short, thought provoking topics in all areas of the new talent triangle (Leadership, Technical Project Management and Strategic and Business Management). GWU is the first to host this type of event.
