My Fifth Book-signing Event @Indigo, Signal Hills, Calgary, AB  

This is my fifth book-signing event (Venue = Signal Hills, Calgary, AB).  

I had the pleasure of meeting with John Castaneda, a Planning and Scheduling colleague , and Kate Knowles, a new friend.. Thanks for your support. My daughter Maria Zenka and Stephen Thornhill came to visit. It was a nice surprise.

Rubbed shoulders with fellow author (A Moth to the Flame) Deb Sanders and husband Ed. An interesting talk with Antonio Sevilla how risk-based management (RBM) relates to Christian beliefs was specially uplifting as it gave me the chance to explain how RBM applies to everything including religion. “Managing sins and temptations is in itself risk-based management to getting that heavenly reward at the end of each of man’s life cycle (Frago, R., 2015.The Risk of Sinning and the End of Times: Christian View of a Risk Manager).”  

My last book-signing event is on July 22, 2017, Saturday at Chinook-Chapters, Calgary, Alberta (11 am to 3 pm). See you there!  

Cheers!   Rufran C. Frago – Author Risk-based Management in the World of Threats and Opportunities: A Project Controls a Perspective.

*My second book is coming out soon! “Plan to Schedule, Schedule to Plan. ISBN 978-0-9947608-2-1”
