Project management isn’t just about managing your time. It’s about managing people and processes.

Project management is not just about ensuring a project gets completed at the required time and within budget. 

It's about keeping everyone involved in the project on the same page, from start to finish.

Project managers are the glue that holds projects together — coordinating all the resources required to meet deadlines and deliverables. 

Our Indoor Recess™ Summit creates an environment where you can learn from the best while networking with other professionals who share your passion for project management.

Hear from previous Indoor Recess™️ attendees...

“In my elementary days, "indoor recess" signaled that it was gloomy outside and we would be faced with boring alternatives. This Indoor Recess Summit was nothing of the sort! It was a well-rounded experience full of time to practice and gain project management clarity. 
“It was a great event with thoughtful speakers and great camaraderie among the participants during the group activities.”
“I’m just starting as a new PMP, and this is event was like heaven for people like me! I’ve already connected with amazing individuals with whom I hope to have long-lasting relationships! I learned so much, and most of all, as a PM, I appreciate how Crystal stuck to a schedule and how organized it was. Thank you. I can’t wait until the next one!”


Crystal Richards, PMP, PMI-ACP, CSM
I train people to be better project managers

Supporting public and private sector clients for 20+ years in healthcare management and project management has been an exciting challenge. Through it all, I have experienced the highs of success and the lows of stress and overwhelm.

My focus is to help overwhelmed teams improve their project management skills (traditional and agile) so they can lead projects with clarity, courage, and confidence.

Whether you're a seasoned professional or starting out, there's something for everyone.

☝🏽 We are all here to learn.
☝🏽 We are all here to grow.
☝🏽 We are all here to help each other.

It's our opportunity to learn the skills we need to thrive on our projects.

We are here to set ourselves up for success.

The Indoor Recess™️ Summit is designed to help you master your craft and implement more efficient project management techniques so you can spend more time on the things that matter to you.

Can I register for one day rather than two days?

Unfortunately, that option is not available.  

What if I'm in between jobs and I don't see this fitting into my budget?

Translation: "I don't see the value for where I am right now."

Friend, there is soooo much value in you being at the playground during the Indoor Recess Summit:

👉🏿 Being in between jobs is the ideal time to make this investment in yourself--great talking points for that next interview, (i.e., "during my time job searching, I made sure to upskill and attend meaningful events that would make me more marketable for future jobs..." Boom💥

👉🏿 The people who will attend may very well be a connection to your next job

👉🏿 Connection to people who are already doing the work--how cool is that?!

You may very well reap the benefits 10x over by attending the Indoor Recess Summit.
