"As the Speaker Coordinator for the PMI Orange County Chapter, I had the distinct pleasure of having 

Dr. Melvin J. Rivers as a breakout session speaker for our 2012 Annual Project Management Conference. 


Dr. Rivers knowledge and expertise in the area of Leading Virtual Multicultural Project Teams was informative, entertaining and extremely insightful. He kept the audience on the edge of their seats with tips on not only how to build high performance virtual teams, but also how to effectively lead these teams by understanding and embracing the cultural differences that inevitably exist between virtual team members. Dr. Rivers also provided all of the attendees with take-aways on how to lead and delegate responsibility and tasks to virtual multicultural team members, that they could implement the very next day at work. I highly recommend Dr. Melvin J. Rivers for any type of speaking engagement where people want to understand the variables involved in working with and leading virtual multicultural project teams, regardless of the size or background of the audience.
