Session 2 Speaker:  Steve Van Horn

Session 2 Topic:  What is Your Sponsor Thinking?

Description:  As a PM, have you ever walked out of a meeting with your project sponsor wondering ‘what are they thinking!?! If you have, it’s probably because you and your sponsor are looking at the same project through very different lenses; the good news is that knowing those differences can help you find ways to communicate more effectively with your sponsor. 

PDU:  Leadership 0.5, Strategic & Business Management 0.5 

Speaker Bio:  Steve grew up in NJ but wanted to see the world so he got the Navy to accept him on the third try. After graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in Civil Engineering, he was commissioned an officer and served in the Persian Gulf and off Yugoslavia during their breakup wars. He wound up in Washington DC where he completed his MBA at George Washington University.

Leaving the Navy nine days before his first son was born he worked in construction management for Home Depot. Later he moved to Booz Allen Hamilton as a management consultant working first in process improvement and later in project management. When Booz Allen decided to experiment with regional offices across the country Steve came to
Indianapolis to build a team. Somewhat unexpectedly he came to love Indiana and decided to stay. Today he works for Anthem, Inc. as an Innovation Architect, pulling together improvement opportunities that cut across organizations and geographies.

Steve is a Project Management Professional (PMP), Program Management Professional (PgMP) and is working towards his Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP) certification. He and his wife Stephanie live in Carmel IN where their three boys keep them busy with sports, scouts, and school. He recently coached his 175th youth sports game. In his free time he tries to keep his two dogs out of the vegetable garden while perfecting his recipe for Chile Garlic Hot Sauce.
