Focus for 2017

As I’ve thought about 2017, one word continues to come to mind – ENGAGEMENT. While I enjoy sharing with thousands of people around the world, I want to engage more with individuals and small groups, both online and face-to-face.

I see my primary audience as practicing project managers in the United States with a college education, a large percentage with either a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree. Most are between the ages of 30 and 60. I plan to focus more on project managers working in the financial industry.

Irrespective of where you live or what you do, I hope you will always find The Project Risk Coach as a reliable resource of project management information.
