He has headed up PM4NGOs since 2015, leading the process of developing the Program DPro Guide and the Project DPro – PMD Pro 2nd Edition.

Edson has over 15 years of experience in the development sector. He has worked at community-based organizations and international NGOs (non-profit organizations), like ChildFund, World Vision, and Etica Fairtrade. “I have been involved in training and developing the PMD Pro since the very first training group in Brazil. I truly believe that we must empower professionals by disseminating project management tools and techniques to community-based organizations. On the other hand, and most importantly, it is from the community that we will learn how and which of these techniques and tools really work.”
