Sensible Project Manager Hangout 13 – Networking and Your Project Manager Career

Networking and Your Project Management Career

“Networking and Your Project Management Career” was the topic for the 13th hangout of the Sensible Project Manager Hangout Community. In this community of project managers and others who enjoy discussing project management topics, we have a weekly hangout which is hosted via Google+ Hangout. These hangouts are held each Friday at 9:00am pacific time. Up to 10 people can join the hangout and those not making it to the hangout can view the conversation via Hangouts “On-Air”.

At the beginning of the hangout, Mark announced an upcoming worldwide event that is sponsored by The Sensible Project Manager.  On October 26th – 29th, 2013 the project management community will hold the first semi-annual Project Manager Networking event.  The concept is simple:

Project Manger Hangout Days

  • Networking days will be held on October 26th – 29th, 2013.
  • Recommendation is to network with 10 project managers (5 you know and 5 you want to get to know).
  • Schedule your networking event in any way comfortable for the group.
  • Share your event by add it to the Oct 2013 Project Manager Networking Days list.
