Jim Benvie PMP, The History PM is a project manager and speaker with TyauvinOn Solutions.
His blog and presentations, combine a lifelong passion for history with four decades of project and operational management experience, to provide inspiration from history for project managers and leaders.
The concept is not simply to copy historical precedents, but to use them to expand your awareness, develop your thinking and stimulate your curiosity.
Do not expect, “Five simple steps to becoming a stellar project manager”, instead expect “Some assembly required”.
However, he believes that like Aesop’s Fables you will find the content both entertaining and informative.
A long-term volunteer with PMI Houston, he lives with his wife Juliet in the Tomball area and his interests are reading, studying history, and cycling.
I am passionate about the design and delivery of high-value virtual and hybrid event experience, having led the UK Chapter digital transformation and two-times award-winning Digital Events team.
I am Head of Benefits Management on UK government New Hospital Programme (NHP), a once in a generation opportunity to transform healthcare infrastructure delivery - building 40 new hospitals!
