PMI and TED partner to spread the word of project management

PMI TED Partnership

To celebrate our 50th Anniversary and further advance the project management profession, PMI is partnering with TED, the non-profit dedicated to ideas worth spreading.

Our two great brands will bring inspiring ideas and powerful voices to the world of project, program and portfolio management, empowering people to make ideas a reality. This partnership is an immersive and impactful experience that has the power to create change, to shift perspectives and connect cultures.

As part of our partnership, this year’s Conference will close with a TED Session – a series of live talks specially curated to inspire and inform project management professionals.

Monday, 7 October 3:00p.m. - 4:30p.m. - more information to come!

Join us for a reception from 4:30p.m. - 5:30p.m. following the TED session and take the opportunity to network and meet the TED speakers.

Join us throughout the year to celebrate our 50th Anniversary as PMI and TED come together to create unique experiences for project professionals. We’re celebrating in a big way and you can get involved!
