Developing Junior Project Managers (Leonard Snoyman – PMP®)

Chip Bell defined mentoring as - "Someone who helps someone else learn something that he or she would have learned less well, more slowly or not at all if left alone".

In the early years of my career, I changed career streams from an Electronics environment into a Project Office as a Project Administrator. The Manager of the Project Office (Gordon DesBrulais) was a knowledgeable and experienced manager, who was passionate about Project Management. I was extremely fortunate to have such a person as my mentor and coach. He assisted me in igniting my passion for project management - something that has never left me. As a result, it has become one of the pillars of my foundation, in “giving back”, within the project management community.
"If you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for the ordinary."
