“Gina Abudi has my highest recommendation as a speaker, presenter and volunteer leader. She is well-connected, knowledgeable and experienced. Our members have often shared that her passion for her subject matter is infectious. She has deep professional expertise, and it shows. She draws on her own career to deliver valuable information and analysis in an inspiring, thorough and organized manner. She meets deadlines, is always willing to update her materials and approach based on our needs and I have always found her a pleasure to work with.”N.R.
“I can’t recommend Gina Abudi highly enough! Recently Gina delivered a customized training program that introduced a project management methodology to a broad cross section of management at BJ’s. She also worked with BJ’s PMO team to enhance their capabilities and effectiveness. Her expertise is evident, but perhaps more importantly, she is a delight to work with. The work has had a lasting impact with a clear ROI. Gina Abudi is an outstanding professional.”C.W
“I’ve seen Gina speak at multiple forums and she has an uncanny ability to explain difficult topics in a way that relates to groups of varying levels of understanding. I’d recommend her to anyone.”S.N.
“When the Boston Chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) held its recent day-long Contracting Workshop, we wanted to provide a session that would educate our attendees on the “nuts and bolts” of how administering a complex business contract could be arranged and managed using project management discipline. Who better to invite than Gina Abudi, President of the local Project Management Institute (PMI) chapter in Boston? Gina attended our event as a breakout speaker and addressed a packed room (of 60) with energy, enthusiasm and expertise… all reflected in the outstanding feedback we received from attendees. We’ll be using Gina again in the future!”R.B.
“I was one of the lucky attendees to attend your session yesterday…and if I do say, it zeroed in on the challenges I face every day as a subk administrator.
You really gave just enough info…didn’t speed-talk…and provided relevant examples, such as when you work with people, need input from them (which is not forthcoming)…and yet you have no authority over them…Ugh! That happens to those of us in the contracts and subcontracts fields all the time! Your answer: to form relationships and small groups, which is actually something that we have been doing just recently–and will continue to do, for sure.
I am so glad that I got to “meet” you and take in the management expertise that you have acquired over the years. I have no doubt that NCMA really tried their best to attract someone as engaging and at-the-top-of-their-profession, as you. Thank you for coming to enlighten all of us!
I hope that you will be a regular contributor to this annual event.”E.V.E.
“I have seen Gina speak at a number of conferences on both project management and leadership topics. I am impressed with her ability to connect with the audience – regardless of their skill level. She is engaging and willingly shares her expertise with others. Gina immediately brings the audience to her. It allows her to impart practical advice in her speaking engagements – ensuring the audience walks away with best practices and tips they can apply immediately. But at the same time she is entertaining – her stories hit close to home! I would highly recommend Gina for your next speaking engagement.”G.B.
“Gina was invited to speak at Metropolitan College’s Project Management in Practice Conference at Boston University. The topic this year was “Women in PM.” Gina challenged the women present, both the 100+ in the room and the 200+ attending online, to consider that women may just have the edge over men in project management! However, that’s true only if they avoid being overly sensitive and playing it too safe. Gina’s presentation generated interest and, even, passion in the audience. Gina was one of the speakers that helped to make our conference a success. Gina shared a number of personal stories that connected her to the audience, both as a woman and as a project manager. It was a moving, passionate, practical, and useful performance – a rare combination”R.W.
“I have worked with Gina Abudi for over ten years and have seen her speak at a variety of forums as well as seeing her interact with a variety of clients. Gina is a seasoned professional speaker and workshop presenter with expertise and experience in multiple fields including, but not limited to, Project Management, Leadership and Business Process Management. Her presentations include executive briefings, workshops and conference presentations. All her presentations are interactive and include knowledge transfer as well as clear and straight forward actionable content.”C.W.
“I had the pleasure of working with, and attending, one of Gina’s presentations on project management through the Northeast Human Resources Association (NEHRA). She was extremely accommodating to our needs and schedule. She is content-savvy and adjusts appropriately to the audience. She engaged the audience of 20+ HR professionals and held their attention in an interactive and lively discussion. I would recommend Gina to speak to any audience including the C-Suite.”R.L.
“We wanted to provide our attendees with a seminar combining change management and working in a global workplace, two important topics since our company was undergoing a global integration.
Gina tailored the seminar to meet our specific needs by combining two of her the workshops. The result was “Leading Change across Cultural Boundaries” which she condensed into an hour and half to address our time constraint. Gina gave a highly informative and insightful presentation, engaging the audience by providing relevant workplace example, specific tips and strategies and thoroughly answering questions throughout the presentation. We have since received much positive feedback specifically noting her effective and clear communication as well as her broad knowledge and professional expertise. Overall, Gina is a pleasure to work with and highly reliable.”J.C.
