Program Description: 

This is a volunteer fair with a great twist…we’ve combined it with an inspiring panel conversation event called "Great Men”, following on from our last event “Great Women” - this really is an event you won’t want to miss.  

Get ready to learn from the experiences of Peter Bartling, a hi-tech COO and Vietnam Army Major Veteran (awarded with the Bronze Star Medal); and Craig Luck, the screenwriter of a new science fiction film called BIOS, staring Tom Hanks.  

Craig Kilford will be hosting the panel, and focusing the conversation on experiences of teamwork, and how team work has helped get results and successful transformation.  

Back by popular demand, we are going to the very cool Day Block brewery in Minneapolis.  You’ll be surrounded by 100 like-minded project professionals who want to connect and learn with you.  Food is provided for you and the panel conversation will be on stage at the end of the room.

The volunteer fair starts at 5pm until 7:00pm where volunteers can connect Committee Members and Chair to talk about the things we do.  The "Great Men” panel starts at 7:00pm, with conversation continuing to 8:00 with question time afterwards.

Attendance is strictly limited to 100 tickets due to the venue (no walk-in), tickets are selling fast so please purchase two tickets right away - one for you and one for someone you think is great. The volunteer fair has no attendance limit.
