North LA | My BIGGEST Project Management Failures and the one that got me FIRED...and what you can learn!

Strategic Business Management

What is the key feedback at the end of every project?  Lessons Learned!  And what happens to those lessons learned for the next project?  Hopefully they are documented and can be shared so that we can avoid the pitfalls and focus on the successes of each project.  Learn from the speaker’s experiences!  This presentation is the product of 30 years of leading projects and efforts around the globe. From shoestring budgets to hundreds of millions in funding there is a common thread that runs through it all.  Join us to find out how Project Management is integrated into Digital Transformation and how every business needs to have a Digital Strategy.  And then our speaker will take you through his 7 key lessons learned over the years.

Speaker | George Szabo

Mr. Szabo built a 400 person sales team, an elite 50 person web team and participated in the raising of 100+ million to fuel a financial sector startup. Founding partner and CEO at AIXIA Global, a company specializing in digital transformation services, the New Space Economy and the application of AI and industry 4.0 technology, Mr. Szabo has both a deep technical and business background and was recruited at the birth of the public internet to work with teams at Universal Inc. on strategies to deal with the threats posed by Napster, MP3 and the digital evolution of the music industry. He participated in the restructuring of Universal under Seagram’s ownership, the merging of Universal with Polygram and the creation of Universal's first global Program Management Office. Mr. Szabo is a published author, innovator and speaker with a proven record of successfully applying new technologies ahead of the industry curve, sharing meaningful insights and helping companies leverage agile thinking to gain a competitive advantage.
