I recently read a Harvard Business Review article which stated that happiness does not come from money, weather, great job but from the strength of social connections. It means that we are our happiest when we have good connections with our friends, peers, children, parents. What better way to add to my happiness than to be part of PMI Sydney Chapter where I find a group of like-minded volunteers willing to give their own time and talents for this community and a wonderful membership who is willing to learn and keep the community going.
I could not be happier with the new board, we are obviously still in team formation and undergoing the natural cycle of “form, storm, norm in order to perform” but I am sure you can judge from the quality of our events, newsletters, social media, weekend courses, mentoring and other programs that the team is committed, interested and willing to make this community a forum where professionals can find expert support, new ideas and enhance their networks.
Let me share with you what we have been working on since I took over as president on May 7, 2018.
