SNEC is proud to announce our Keynote Speakers:

  • James T. Brown takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the art and science of critical project management truths. He encourages participants to "Let off a little steam" and to discover the sacred truths that every project manager needs to know in his opening keynote entitled Four Unspeakable Project Management Truths.
  • Closing our professional development day, Vic Alejandro will focus on the lighter side of project management, offering practical advice in a context that allows you to sit back and have some fun after you have experienced a day full of networking and learning in his keynote How Many PMs Does It Take to Change A Light Bulb.
