Speaker: George Brockman, PMP
Topic: Dealing with Difficult Stakeholders
Bio: George Brockman, PMP is a Birmingham native and a practicing project manager and business consultant in the southeastern US. George is owner of Radiant Professional Services, a management consulting firm, and serving as a project manager at Southern Company.
Starting out in programming and electronics, George enjoyed a 20-year career in technology, transitioning into management in the second half of that journey. In 2007 he earned his PMP and continues to refine skills in this discipline. In 2013 he formed his own business and incorporated project management as well as business development to bring a deep portfolio of services.
Project managers plan and measure the progress against the plan. Along the way, a big part of what is not always appreciated is the level of effort in dealing with people and personalities and the conflicts that arise. As someone with both functional management and project management experience, George brings some insight on how to respond to some of these big challenges. He’s had to learn some hard lessons, and sometimes he did so the hard way.
