Welcome to Projectland:

Ultimate Guide for Beginners
Dawn’s stories from her years of working with top brands around the world and hands-on experience leading projects across industries will resonate with everyone who has ever participated in or led a project. This interactive experience will also get you thinking about your own career stories that can help amplify your leadership profile.
Part manuscript reading, part feedback session, part networking event, we will:
- Discuss how storytelling skills can help your career
- Listen to Dawn’s read a few of her favorite stories from her upcoming manuscript, Welcome to Projectland
- Break out into small groups to network and discuss which stories resonated most with you and why (often triggering memories of your own unique experiences and stories!)
- Participate in a poll to report on your favorites and see how they compare to other participants
- Welcome feedback on the stories that could shape how they show up in the book
- Get your name listed in Dawn’s upcoming book as a contributor!
Based on the success of Dawn’s recent private manuscript reading sessions, this is the first time she is opening up the opportunity to be listed in her book as a contributor through a PMI chapter.
