Sylvie has been involved in Project Management in several industries for the past 25 years. She started like most, accidentally, and loved it enough to devote the rest of her career to it. Sylvie previously worked for a top 5 consulting firm, where she oversaw projects in the IT, Banking, Health, Government and Securities sectors as well as a Manager in the Risk Management practice.
Sylvie went on to establish her own consulting practice assisting organizations in establishing processes, strategies, and developing methodologies.

Sylvie also worked on the establishment of a Project Maturity model for both practitioner and organization.

Sylvie's involvement with PMI® is long standing including over 12 years on the Board of Directors of a local Chapter where she led initiatives in education, mentoring and held the role of President for two terms.
For this presentation, Sylvie comes to us with her unique perspective of the PMBOK® Guide, having “dissected” the previous five versions in order to enable the development of different course materials for both PMP® certification and post-graduate programs.
