Before we start, do you want to tell the audience what you do now? Just give a quick background of the kind of activities you are doing now, with regards to videos, PDUs2Go.com or projectmanager.com, maybe a quick brief
Sure, I’m blessed to be able to do multiple things that I really enjoy doing. Of course, I’m the founder of PDUs2Go.com and we’re looking forward to celebrating our fifth anniversary August 1st. And with PDUs2Go.com there, basically number one it’s not really managing the whole PDUs2Go.com, the whole aspect and working with not only our production team, but also working with the multiple authors that we’re partnered with. Really going out and interviewing and talking with and getting to know the authors, as they have experience with different projects from different aspects. Talking with them about some of their philosophies, some of their teachings, so learning about the different authors and what they can bring back and infuse into the project management community.
So I love being able to work with different authors in that regard. And then of course also on the creative aspect of producing content on my own. As you may know, I’m a speaker and an author as well. So I’m constantly producing content of my own and through my consulting practice and mentoring practice, so that’s quite fun.
And then also partnering with ProjectManager.com, working with Jason Westland and his team and putting together different content for projectmanager.com, specifically. We have a video training series and working on other aspects of that community.
