My PM Mentor

Cornelius has been my Project Management mentor, without even knowing, since his first PM Podcast episode in August 2005. His enthusiasm, passion, and determination to continue his mission, inspired me, 10 thousand kilometers away, to advance in my career, from a "plain" project manager to PMP and then to Vice-President in Romanian PMI Chapter.
