Ted Fatteross

The challenging times that we are facing today directly affect how organizations select new projects and execute them.  This impacts our lives as project or program managers directly or indirectly in many different ways, potentially creating roadblocks that may prevent us from reaching our full potential.  Ted Fattoross will lead a highly interactive session to walk us through some of the time tested strategies to be the best we can be.

This presentation will provide a customized insight into various project management topics with a strong emphasis on project communications.  Ted will raise the curtain, remove the blinders, and break down the barriers to bring clarity and help project managers unclog pipelines of communication - and open new ones - on their projects and in their personal lives.  Ted will weave his presentation with a mix of Q?A, role playing, and practical real life examples in the arena of project management to bring forth a whole new experience and open doors of opportunity to be the best regardless of the circumstances and challenges.
