PMI Kerala Chapter considers it a great honor to have hosted the fifth PMI Regional Conference on 27 April 2019 at the Convention Centre in Greenfield International Stadium —The Sports Hub, in Thiruvananthapuram.

We are happy that this event took place in God’s Own Country during the 50th anniversary celebration year of PMI and the 15th anniversary of PMI Kerala Chapter. We consider it our privilege that Tejas Sura, member, PMI Board of Directors, could join us and speak on The Future of Work - PMI’s 2019 Pulse of the Profession®.

The delegates opined that it was enlightening to hear from the distinguished keynote speakers on the transformation made possible by project managers in varied disciplines — like the space program, IT sector, healthcare, media/entrepreneurship, research expeditions, disaster management, social inclusive programs, and the education sector.

The post-lunch behavioral expert session, the lightning talks on chrysalis and road safety, as well as the mentalist session ensured that the audience had a fruitful day. We are happy that the conference provided a number of takeaways on skill development in relation to the changing roles of the project manager to the 300-plus delegates representing a wide range of industries.

Counters of the PMI Educational Foundation and PMI Champions and the 50th anniversary celebration kiosks were added attractions. The Kerala Chapter Board and volunteers thank PMI India for giving us the opportunity to put this event together.
