July 23, 2019 Dinner Meeting

PaulWarkentinThe Regulator is Our First Customer

Compliance is a factor in so many industries across the spectrum. There are multiple aspects to compliance which impact all other areas of business. Project Managers need to understand the perspective of Compliance folk as they manage projects that could either impact compliance requirements or where a requirement could derail your project. Compliance is also an area that Project Managers may want to look at for their own future growth and career development. So this evening we will discuss the various Compliance aspects at a high level, review the Compliance perspective, and then Paul will outline what Compliance is all about in the gaming industry and how project management can positively impact Compliance departments.

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

June 25, 2019 Dinner Meeting

Chadwick Spencer

Project Management at the End of the World

Project management always has its challenges, but have you thought about what it is like to manage a remote project where there is no infrastructure, your office is a tent, and on your first day of work the temperature is -20° C? Mineral exploration programs are often in far-flung places and have very unique opportunities and challenges. Chadwick Spencer was the camp manager for such a project in northern Ontario and he would like to share his experiences with you. Come hear what it is like to scale a project from 10 to 80 people, where the nearest town is a two-hour flight or a four-hour drive across ice roads, while working to create a gold mine.

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

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?

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.
