“How MS Project Saved My Life” (or at least helps me do my job!)

Waltham, MA – On Wednesday November 30, 2011, The Boston Chapter of MPUG (Official Industry Association for Microsoft Project) will be holding a membership meeting.  This interactive presentation and discussion will be delivered by various practitioners including Jacques Goupil, Shawn O’Connell and Jan Wells.

In the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday it seems an appropriate time to reflect on the many things for which we are grateful – family, friends, community and yes, sometimes even a good Gantt chart.  So we asked several of our MPUG Boston Chapter members to tell us why they are grateful for MS Project.  OK, maybe it never saved your life, but somewhere along the line it probably helped you make a point with executives, communicate with your sponsors or motivate your team.  Our multiple presenters will share their tips, techniques and gratitude for how MS Project helps to get their jobs done.

The presentation will be given at the Microsoft District Office at 201 Jones Rd. (6th floor, Room MPR-A); Waltham, MA 02451.  Cost for the event is free for members and $15 for non-members.  Food, soft drinks and special treats will be served.  Click here for directions.
