Please Join us as Rich Weller presents AI in Project Management

Artificial Intelligence (AI) used to only appear in cool science fiction movies, but if any of the recent television commercials or social media posts are any indication – AI is our new reality.  There is no doubt, digital disruption is real.  It has been cycling through industries at an ever-increasing pace.  The project management profession will not be immune to the impacts of AI.  So rather than fear the change, project managers should embrace the change.  Insight, processes and techniques will be shared in this presentation for navigating the transformation towards a “Smart PMO”.

Please join us and Menlo Innovations CEO Rich Sheridan as we discuss Leadership and his book Chief Joy Officer

 

RICH SHERIDAN

Menlo Innovations CEO Rich Sheridan became disillusioned in the middle of his career in the chaotic technology industry. He had an all-consuming thought…things can be better.  Much better.  He had to find a way. Why couldn't a workplace be filled with camaraderie, human energy, creativity, and productivity?

Ultimately, Rich co-founded Menlo Innovations in 2001 to end human suffering in the workplace.  His unique approach to custom software creation is so surprisingly different, that 3,000 people a year travel from around the world just to see how they do it.

His passion for creating joyful work environments led to his bestselling and widely-celebrated book, Joy, Inc. - How We Built a Workplace People Love.  His highly-anticipated second book, Chief Joy Officer, came out December 4th and will continue to prove that a positive and engaging leadership style is actually good for business.
