LAA Pros

Beyond Learning


Our Goal

Kate and Nila founded LAA Pros (Learn, Apply, and Achieve) in 2019 with a goal to help the professional community bridge a gap between the knowledge received through professional seminars and the application of that knowledge to improve job performance.

Our Unique approach

We have been serving on the Speaker Selection Committee of the Project Management Institute Northeast Wisconsin chapter for over a decade. This allows us to follow our Project Management passion and precisely learn what the audience looks for in external speakers and trainers.  So now we utilize our combined experience and strengths to:

  • Role-play subject matter and actively involve the audience

  • Use short breakout sessions to gauge participants’ initial thoughts and address concerns

  • Provide a quick reference or other materials to help implement the subject matter

The tag team of Kate Milani and Nila Vaishnav did an excellent job presenting “The Fallacy of Multitasking” at a recent PMI-NEW Chapter meeting. Their highly interactive style of learning kept the audience engaged and smiling throughout the session. Motivated by their unique and varied approach to learning, everyone left the session with tangible takeaways to apply in their personal and professional lives. I highly recommend the LAA Pros duo to speak at your event.

I had the opportunity to experience a presentation with Nila Vaishnav and Kate Milani on "The Fallacy of Multi-tasking" at a recent PMI-NEW Chapter meeting. I wanted to give kudos to this team for being highly engaging and interactive. They motivated the group by having the audience participate which not only got people up and moving, it proved to be entertaining as fellow Project Managers took on various roles of demanding stakeholders. The demonstration was highly effective as the activities were timed for improvements and accuracy. I left the presentation with takeaways that could be applied to my personal and professional life. I highly recommend the LAA Pros duo to speak at your event for a fun and interactive presentation.

Thank you for presenting on this topic! We project managers have the tremendous opportunity to incorporate the principles of sustainability, Triple Bottom Line, and circularity in all our projects, even if this isn't considered the primary objective. Ultimately TBL is good business and the right thing to do!

I will quote from your presentation "Sustainability requires that we look beyond the scope, schedule, and budget of the temporary project and consider the larger Triple Bottom Line that projects operate within."
It is so moral to be applied in practice. Thanks for the presentation.
