International Project ManagementLorenz3

Have you ever wondered what it was like to work in international business, manage a team comprised of international resources, or lead a project that was completely outside the country?

There are 197 countries in the world, each with their own distinct culture (language, customs, currency, etc.), and while many of us have never ventured outside our borders Lorenz Ledesma has had the fortune to visit 20 countries to date (and lead projects in 12 of those countries). Managing an international team &/or project presents a set of unique experiences, as well as challenges.

Please join us on May 28 to hear from Lorenz Ledesma, to hear all about managing teams and projects outside of our borders.

Location: Napa Sonoma Plumgate - 550 W Plumb Ln, Reno, NV 89509

We will continue to accept "Pay-at-the-door" but can no longer accept walk-ins. If you are planning on attending please register early.

Registration will need to close 5/24 5PM
