My Prayer before work
Dear Lord, We thank you;
For the brand new day!,
For the talents you have given us,
For the health you have given us,
For the work you have given us,
For the customers you have given us,
For the money you are giving us,
For the family, friends and relatives.
We pray to You;
To give us a humble mind, eager to serve others,
To empower us to be graceful in every transaction,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; Where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Workshops & e-Learning programs
So far I have conducted around 150 project management workhops based on the project management body of knowledge by PMI, USA as well as Agile project management using scrum. These include both private programs as well a public workshops.
Apart from these I have launched two e-learning programs at ClassTube. The free (rather price less) 'PMessentials' program introduces one to the core of professional project management and the 'PMdistilled e-learning with 35 contact hours' prepares the candidates for the PMP certification.
