NEW YORK, Oct. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International Institute for Learning, Inc. (IIL) is pleased to announce that its 2019 IPM Day Online Conference will go live on Thursday, November 7th.

More than 50,000 people are expected to register.

IPM Day’s outstanding keynote speakers would take the main stage at any in-person event, and their sessions will address topics that resonate with all members of the project management community:

  • Sunil Prashara, President and CEO of Project Management Institute, on how PMI is preparing the world (and its project managers) for new ways of working
  • Dr. Harold Kerzner, Senior Executive Director at IIL, on shifting the project management mindset to focus less on deliverables and more on business benefits and value

Attendees will also have an opportunity to ask questions, following each keynote presentation on November 7th. Twenty additional presenters will round out the speaker lineup, representing small to medium-sized companies as well as larger organizations like Microsoft, Fiserv, Intrado and Bank of America. Presenter sessions will explore a range of relevant topics like Data Quality, Agile, Leadership, Risk Management, Business Intelligence, and Stakeholder Engagement.

This year’s theme is “Focusing on What Matters,” highlighting the critical importance of the people and ideas that propel the Project Management profession forward. “I think what matters most in project management are the people behind it, and that’s what we are bringing focus to this year,” states IIL’s Founder, President and CEO E. LaVerne Johnson. “We are especially pleased to have PMI as a Platinum Sponsor on their 50th anniversary year. I’m looking forward to hearing from Sunil Prashara and all of the great speakers on our program.”
