We first met in 2002 when I was in Sao Paulo to speak at the PMI-SP annual project management conference, a big event of 1,000 attendees. He was one of the leaders of the PMI chapter at that time; he was young, active and very well respected. We met again on my second visit to Brazil, and have remained friends. This is a wonderful development.”
