The PMI Talent Triangle™

Innovation and Creativity Guru. Customer Experience Expert. Employee Engagement Engineer.

Certified Speaking Professional Jeff Tobe, M.Ed., CSP, was chosen by readers of Convention & Meetings Magazine as one of the top 15 speakers in North America. He is one of the most sought after speakers in the PM world after his successful keynote at PMI International. He prides himself on presenting up-to-the-minute, cutting-edge material as it relates to designing the ideal customer EXPERIENCE by getting your people more ENGAGED at what they do every day. Jeff is the author of the wildly popular book “Project Management Professionals ARE Coloring Outside The Lines” and co-author of 3 others.

Jeff encourages PM’s to “start considering every one of your TOUCHPOINTS--those opportunities you or your people have to influence the customer/stakeholder experience. Allow people to ‘tweak’ their own touchpoints and, collectively, change the experience. Tobe is not just entertaining—he provides real ‘tools’ to creatively ENGAGING your internal and external customer. With the push to agile methodologies, Jeff gets PM’s to focus on scope flexibility and team input in a whole new way.

“Your presentation was transformative for me! As I drove home (avoiding the rearview mirror as much as possible), the images you created, quite simply, made my heart sing! You are truly an inspiration and a treasure! “Maggie Miller, County of Sonoma


Workshop Objectives:

This high-energy, participatory, humorous session has received outstanding reviews from diverse PMI groups around the world. Certified Speaking Professional, Jeff Tobe, challenges you to step outside your comfort zone in positioning yourself more creatively than ever before. He provides the insight you require to give yourself the ‘competitive edge’ for which we all strive in the PM world today!

To be effective in today’s marketplace, you must force yourself to look at your organization’s EXPERIENCE from a different perspective.

Tobe is not just entertaining—he provides real ‘tools’ to creatively ENGAGING your internal and external stakeholder. With the push to agile methodologies, Jeff gets PM’s to focus on scope flexibility and team input in a whole new way.

He believes in the power of creativity to look at business from a new perspective and accept that customer service is no longer the bar that distinguishes us from our competitors. We now have to consider our internal and external customers' EXPERIENCES from the minute they make contact with us to the minute they are done!

He addresses the concept of seeing the world through their eyes—from their perspective! Most important, his sessions are upbeat, interactive and FUN!

Join Jeff to learn:

  • How to spark innovative thinking—in yourself and others
  • Motives for making the shift from a service to EXPERIENCE culture in PM today
  • Techniques to effectively manage the change that comes with innovation
  • The benefits to challenging your existing “boundaries”
