We were very fortunate to have had Frank Saladis present a double header to our PMI Buffalo Chapter membership earlier this year. Frank presented the topics of Portfolio and Program Management, and Managing Organizational Change with great enthusiasm and a tremendously high level of engagement of our attendees. He conveyed a wealth of knowledge and great insights from his vast experience as a practitioner in our industry! JoAnn Boehm President PMI Buffalo Chapter If there is someone who knows his stuff, engages the audience, and rocks the room, its Frank Saladis.He is by far one of the best speakers I had the pleasure of listening to A very knowledgeable speaker with remarkable audience engagement abilities. Emad E. Aziz, PfMP, PgMP, PMP, PRINCE2P, CSSGB | President & CEO I was first introduced to Frank Saladis when he gave an excellent keynote presentation at our annual Resource Planning Summit in 2013 in Chicago. Since that time, I have had the privilege of working closely with him in several PMI/PDWare co-sponsored meetings which he has organized and presented. He has played in important role in our last two Summits in 2014 in New Orleans and in 2016 in New York City. In addition to returning as a keynote speaker, Frank has served as our Conference Chairperson, introducing all speakers and panels, leading the Q&A and facilitating in a most masterful way, keeping us on track, on target and on time. In his expert, energetic style, he takes charge of the room, actively engaging the audience. He has the uncanny ability to zero in on key elements for the audience to take away. I look forward to continue working with Frank as we plan future meetings and conferences. Dennis Piccininni EVP-COO PDWare Over the past 45 years, I've seen hundreds of presenters at all levels of government, business, and academia. I have spent the better part of those years as a presenter myself, so I know and understand what it means and what it takes to be a presenter who can genuinely be considered "elite" - a goal we "wannabes" aspire to but few ever achieve. Frank, however, is one of the rare ones. As a presenter, he is without question among the nation's elite. He does not overpower. He does not "wow" with technical pyrotechnics. He does not leave one filled with emotion but devoid of content. That is what Frank does not do. What he does do is engage his audience - as if he were having a one-on-one conversation - connecting intellectually, building trust, and most importantly, educating and informing in ways that stick. He is self-effacing yet confident. He is entertaining but exceptionally knowledgeable, and he illustrates ideas, facts, perspectives, and unparalleled experiences in ways that keep his audiences involved and wanting more. Frank is likable and believable, polished and professional, fun and energetic. On top of all of this, he understands the fine points of public speaking - including setting and logistics - as well as any professional I've known. If these qualities and characteristics are not textbook definitions of what it means to be among the nation's elite presenters, then he meets one final, and perhaps most critical test - when people know that Frank will be speaking, they come...and that is the Mount Olympus for anyone who presents for a living. We are proud to be associated with Frank, and to have him present at our events. Alan Waite, CEO PRAXIS Society for Human Integrity, Inc.
