I don’t have a specific agenda other than keeping up on the news and sharing said news. Oh, and it’s free. 👍

Why subscribe?

Let's face it; we're all pressed for time as we try to navigate the daily rigors of life. You don't have time to stay up to date with your personal life and work while also staying on top of the latest professional knowledge within Project Management. I got your back! I created The Stakeholder Report just for professionals like you and me.

Each day I comb through the PM news and professional updates from around the globe and turn that into a sleek weekly newsletter that goes out around 0700 (7:00 am), Pacific time, each Thursday. On Tuesday’s you may, or may not, also receive an original article/essay covering some aspect of our profession.

The gist:

  • I turn the events happing within the PM craft into a usable newsletter.

  • Longform essays are my favorite to write, they may belong, but they’re worth it.

  • Possible pontification on such articles is possible... ;)

  • PMI, PRINCE2, APM, and AIPM Updates (👈 we mustn’t forget Australia!)

  • Education opportunities

The expectation:

  • Weekly (Thursday) email with the latest news/updates in PM (free).

  • Additional essays and newsletters (one or the other, but not every week)

  • Support independent publishing.
