Event description


Are you an experienced professional looking to advance your career? Have you led projects successfully in your current role or past roles? Do you like the challenge of coordinating people, meeting deadlines, and managing budgets? If these questions ring true for you, then we invite you to attend our career networking event, Project Me: A Project Management Career Panel, hosted by Propeller Consulting and moderated by Mac’s List.

Project management is a great foundation for a diverse range of career paths and we’ve put together an awesome panel of community leaders! Our panelists have used their project management skills to build their careers in their respective fields of consulting, marketing, and technology.
