Ireland Chapter of PMI

Welcome to the Ireland Chapter of the PMI Podcast - Episode 16

Welcome to Part 2 of the LIM Dublin Interviews from May 2019. 

 

It was an amazing week by all accounts. While I only had the fortune to be at LIM for 2 days, I was able to pack a lot in.  

 

During the 2 days, I was also able to connect with a number of attendees at the LIM which included Members of PMI at HQ in Philadelphia and Chapter leaders from across the globe.  

 

This episode shares the final set of short interviews so you can get a better understanding of different parts of the PMI, what’s happening in other chapters and of course, hear loud and clear the value and benefits gained from volunteering for your local chapter.  

 

We’ve also added a new member to our Ireland Chapter podcast crew as you’ll hear on this episode. Brantlee Underhill, Director of Chapters and Volunteers at PMI, a past guest on the show also, was my co-host for the day and she did an amazing job! Thank you Brantlee 

 

Ok. Enough from me. Let’s get into the interviews.
