KINGSTON Saturday Seminar

Topic #1: Infrastructure Project Delivery in the Middle East (1 hour - 1 PDU under Strategic & Business Management)

In the span of a decade, a global city doubled with a business hub went from a paradise for fuel-guzzling SUVs to a heaven for mass transit users. This is the inside story - known to very few - of how it all happened, from the perspective of a project manager. This is a story of vision, leadership and risk-taking.

Presenter #1: Taoufik Mounib, PMP, Project Manager, Bombardier 

Taoufik cumulates some 25 years of international experience. In addition to Canada, he has lived and worked in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. His experience spans from the feasibility stage up to the start of operations of urban transit projects.

He received his PMP certification in 2015.

#Topic #2: Blockchain and Project Management (1 hour - 1 PDU under Strategic & Business Management)
