Energy Corridor Update and Invite to Future Events

    Energy Corridor Update and Invite to Future Events

    By Wendy Valot, Director of Energy Corridor Venue

    Are you wondering what’s new in PMIH Venues and Monthly meetings? Plenty! As of September 2016, we’ve added another venue. Why? PMI Houston wanted to provide an opportunity for education, discussions and networking focused to those in the Energy Industry.

    The meetings are hosted by Microsoft at the Microsoft Technology Center in City Center and are open to all.  The typical format of the meetings include two 1-hour presentations: The Pre-Meeting presentation by Microsoft and the Dinner Meeting Speaker’s presentation focused on the Energy Industry.  In between the presentations, attendees enjoy snacks and plenty of networking time.

    To date we’ve had Microsoft present on topics ranging from “Tips and Tricks on Microsoft Project” to “Microsoft Project & Dynamics 365 for Complex Field Resource Management”. Our Energy Speakers have included a panel discussion featuring NOV Executives addressing “How are companies positioning themselves now for when things do turn around?” and project leaders discussing “Avoiding Project Train Wrecks…and Make Sure Your Energy Project Succeeds”.

    Included below are photos of some of our key speakers since September 2016. 


    Our Microsoft host speaker – Jeff Spencer


    And also: Julie Pearce and Robin Macmillan – NOV, Pete Luan – consultant and Eric Wensel -  Wood Group.

    Our meetings are bi-monthly, on the 3rd Thursday of every other month.  The next two meetings are on March 16th and May 18th, respectively. We look forward to seeing you at our next Energy Corridor Venue meeting!  You can find meeting information and register at:
