PMI Silicon Valley Chapter

Call for Presentations

Become a Symposium Speaker

The PMI Silicon Valley Chapter is pleased to announce its 2023 Annual Symposium, which this year will be conducted both virtually and at an in-person location in California’s Silicon Valley. This year's theme is: “Leadership for a Changing World: Inspiring Action, Driving Impact, and Creating Value."

Project leaders and professionals surveyed in the Annual PMI Global Survey on Project Management agree that these four power skills are critical for project success: Communication, Problem Solving, Collaborative Leadership, and Strategic Thinking. Leading projects in a world that is increasingly disconnected and filled with constant distractions requires proficiency in all four of these areas.

Do you have stories to share about applying leadership expertise, connecting diverse and remote teams, or other effective methods for managing successful projects in chaotic, evolving environments? Is what you are doing now different from what has worked for your past projects? Would you like to share your experiences with like-minded professionals dealing with current challenges and participate in a hybrid event where you will learn from others facing similar issues?

If so, please plan to join us as a virtual or in-person session speaker at our 2023 PMI Silicon Valley Annual Symposium.

Important Dates:

  • Deadline for submission: July 09, 2023
  • Selected presenters notified by: July 31, 2023
  • Sample dry run for presentations: Late August 2023
  • Final presentations due: September 18, 2023
