Tech Session 2019-1


Held at the popular Harold’s Hotel on Saturday, April 27, 2019, topics presented were focused on the essential skills for a project manager that can make or break a project, and in most cases, are the hardest to learn versus technical skills.  Kahlil Corazo, PMP & President of digital marketing company, Advenient Corp, was first to present his experience on the 16 things that worked for him on how to be here and now for family and work.  Technology does help us get work done but it often consumes hours of family time and he shares his tactics on how to avoid this pitfall and achieve balance between work and family.
