We're putting on a panel that pulls together experienced, mid-level and new project managers from the Drupal community to talk about strategies for client and project management.
We'll be talking about instructive failure points in our own work, with personal stories of how we mess things up and how we recover gracefully.

This panel will be informative, entertaining and full of audience participation possibilities.

Similar panel was successful last year

I know I'm biased cause I'm on the panel :-)

That said, we ran a similar panel last year that was successful and had a lot of good feedback from the attendees and participants. It was one of my favorite sessions to be a part of.


I'll definitely attend

I just love the idea of a panel and I bet this is going to be very insightful, will be there :)
