Zweig Group announces brand new seminar for aspiring project managers

Mar 04, 2015

Zweig Group has launched an all new seminar series titled “Becoming a Better Project Manager,” targeted at new and aspiring project managers in the architecture, engineering, planning, and environmental consulting industry. The course is presented by Howard Birnberg, president of Birnberg & Associates, a management consulting and association management firm. Birnberg is one of the foremost experts in project management and in addition to being an instructor on the subject at the University of California-Berkeley Extension and at Embry-Riddle (Worldwide) University, he also has served as an instructor on project management in the Office of Executive Education at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and as an adjunct assistant professor at Michigan State University, College of Human Ecology. Birnberg is the author of Project Management for Designers and Facilities Managers, 3rd ed. (J. Ross Publishing, 2008) which has a 4th edition scheduled to be published in Fall of 2015. Birnberg is active in a number of PM-related organizations and has given hundreds of seminars to thousands of architects, engineers, planners and scientists over the years. “We decided to do this seminar--Becoming a Better Project Manager-- because the fact is, architects, engineers, planners and environmental scientists often get little or no training in project management. Yet, one day, most of them at some point get drafted into a PM role--one they are completely unequipped for,” said Mark C. Zweig, Zweig Group founder & CEO. “At Zweig Group, our entire purpose is to help you and your people be more successful. We've got a tight agenda--great food--and convenient locations for the Becoming a Better Project Manager seminars. It will be time and money well-invested to attend,” said Zweig. The first seminar is scheduled for May 5, 2015 in Miami, Florida. For more information visit:
