Dr. James T. Brown (Keynote Speaker and Session Presenter):
Dr. Brown has spoken to audiences from Anchorage Alaska to Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. He earned the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) by the National Speakers Association in 2008 Less than 10% of professional speakers worldwide have the Certified Speaking Professional designation. It is the highest earned designation in the speaking industry. Participants say his use of stories and humor bring critical truths to light, in an entertaining way that leaves them motivated to take action. He provides brilliant bluntness on real-world, common-sense practices for project management and leadership. An IBM executive stated after Dr. Brown’s keynote speech “If we all took the time to step back and remember what Dr. Brown taught us, we would be unstoppable in the marketplace.” Dr. Brown has run his own company, SEBA® Solutions, for over fifteen years. He also servers as a Lecturer in the University of Central Florida College of Business. He had a career at NASA that included "hands-on" experience as a team member, project manager, and serving in executive-level organizational leadership roles. He has a patent for a project scheduling methodology, and has received numerous awards including "Engineer of the Year" from the Cape Canaveral Technical Societies, and is a recipient of the "NASA Public Service Medal" for exceptional contributions to NASA’s mission. He has a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from the University of Central Florida, an MS in Engineering Management from Florida Institute of Technology and a BS in Electrical Engineering from Tennessee State University. He is a licensed Professional Engineer (PE), a certified Project Management Professional (PMP). Dr. Brown is the author of The Handbook of Program Management published by McGraw-Hill. Now in its second edition, it continues to be the best selling book on program management since its publication in 2007. Filled with practical, real-world advice, it has also been used by universities in their program management courses. Several Universities have used The Handbook of Program Management as a text and it was selected by George Washington University’s Elliot School of International Affairs as a required text for its NASA Program Management course.
