CIO Council / SIM Joint Event
After a very successful first workshop back in April, I am offering the Value Driven and Adaptive Planning Workshop again and this time over a weekend at the end of September to accommodate those who have a hard time taking the day off.
Here is what the last cohort group said about the workshop:
- “It was relevant, based on real life projects, experience circumstances. It was practical with recommendations that can be applied immediately.”
- “Thanks for an engaging workshop – I’m excited to take new ideas back to work for improving planning!”
- “I liked that it provided an in depth dive into my specific role as a business analyst.”
- “Excellent level of engagement and balance between discussion detail and course progress. Great content knowledge”

As you know, I am committed to doing my part to attract and retain the best talent in South Florida by building community. One way I do this is by partnering with companies to offer a free spot in my open enrollment classes for any South Floridian in transition (currently out of work) or an interested full-time student. For every 2 people a company sends to one of my qualifying training classes or workshops, it unlocks a free spot that will lift someone up and better position them for a new opportunity!
