Presentation Title: Managing Remote International Projects
Speaker Bio:
Don Gilman stands out as a visionary in project management, with an impressive tenure in the technology sector marked by pioneering remote international projects. His career is a testament to pushing boundaries through innovative problem-solving and leadership in demanding scenarios. Don has expertly utilized GIS technology (and submarines) for complex environmental restoration, led groundbreaking “pre-ERP” system integrations, and has been a key figure in developing and delivering PMI-aligned project management education. His work in sustaining software systems, some of which have surpassed the two-decade mark, and steering Viasat’s engineering teams towards groundbreaking achievements highlights his exceptional skill set.
Don’s contributions to the tech community extend beyond traditional boundaries, through a wide array of computer games, engaging articles, and thought-leadership papers, establishing him as a prominent voice in the industry. His entrepreneurial spirit is evident in his role in founding cutting-edge software companies, crafting innovative software solutions, and spearheading community initiatives that emphasize creativity and meticulousness.
Armed with prestigious certifications, including a PMP and a license as a Professional Engineer, Don embodies the essence of a multifaceted professional, driven by a passion for excellence in every endeavor.
Beyond the professional realm, Don’s life is enriched by his family—his wife Lori, their two adult children, and their playful Shetland Sheepdog puppy. A Renaissance man, his passions include immersing himself in SciFi universes, culinary explorations, homebrewing, keeping fit, and the intricate art of scale models.
Get ready to be inspired by Don Gilman as he shares invaluable insights into leading projects across borders with agility and vision. Join him for a presentation that promises not just to inform but to transform the way you approach remote project management.

Don will share his experiences in leading his team’s journey to implement a Program to create a new product, in a new market, in a new country.
