Keynote Presentation:

Keynote Presenter:Joel Carboni Ph.D. GPM® IPMA Level B®

The quest for sustainability is transforming the corporate landscape and is forcing businesses to change the way they view projects. 

The key to progress in challenging socio-economic times is innovation. Just as upstarts such as Airbnb, Uber, and Purple are doing, sustainable practices that support the 17 UN Sustainable development goals are emerging to upset the status quo. By treating sustainability integral to business success, adopters are developing competencies that rivals are hard-pressed to match.

In this presentation, Dr. Carboni will focus on what sustainability means to projects, why it is important and provide some best practices that you can use right away.
