The Digital PM Summit will take place October 15-17 in Las Vegas, NV. In preparation for the event, we’ve sent our speakers some questions so you can find out more about what you'll be learning. This post is the first in the Q&A series. If you’ve got questions for us or our speakers, feel free to reach out to us or leave a comment here.

When you attend a conference, you want to be sure you’re getting everything out of it that you possibly can. Well, we think it’s safe to say that the Digital PM Summit 2017 will be jam-packed with helpful tips, tactics, and discussion about topics that are important to the practice of digital project management. But what will you actually take away from sessions? Look no further. We asked our speakers, “What is one valuable thing that attendees will take away from your session?

“Why it’s so important to pay attention to the little things when managing people or projects and how if you do this, it unlocks so many positive things when it comes to teamwork, loyalty and trust.” - Sam Barnes

“Attendees will leave with a checklist of team attributes and tools against which they can evaluate their team’s decision-making efficacy, and develop a plan for strengthening their teams’ abilities to be efficient, democratic decision-makers.” - Abby Fretz

“An understanding of which Agile practices can be modified to work within a Digital context without completely compromising the point of doing Agile in the first place.” - Dave Prior

“I believe that setting and managing expectations is one of the trickiest tasks of project management, due to the fact we’re constantly dealing with the unknown. How do we know what to expect? Stakeholders’ expectations are also one of the biggest risks to derailing any project – whether that’s from a product, timing, budget, technical or design point of view. I want to give attendees the power to make managing constantly changing expectations a seamless part of their project delivery.” - Suzanna Haworth

“How to use techniques that improvisers use to create content out of thin air that you can use to better communicate with your team.” - Gary Ware

“My session is all about money and one valuable thing I’d like attendees to take from it is that they should be proud of their commercial success.” - Peta Kennett-Wilson

“Silos are often a closely protected way of life in many business cultures, and DPMs have definitely experienced - and been frustrated by - them. My session will offer a new perspective on how to work with silos, instead of just banging your head against the institutional structure.” - Amanda Costello

“Just how valuable two minutes can be to your entire day. The two minute rule is part of my overall organization and working system and I look forward to sharing it!” - Greg Ryder
