Join us to hear Michael Nir, President Sapir Consulting US, share how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting us, and how the gig economy is accelerating. Don't get left behind! This presentation will prepare you to practice and develop critical skills to thrive in the gig economy!

Grow Your Skills
It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. The project management discipline has moved toward emerging technologies that are in high demand, including the traditional waterfall approach. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies is highly sought after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
