Get to know David Keim, our Regional Program Coordinator, focused on the Southwest Ohio region. He’s dedicated to helping grow our ACMP Ohio community in that region and has a lot of passion for Change Management work! Check out our conversation with him below:

How long have you been in the Change Management Profession?

Two years. I have a background in HR, Training and Continuous Improvement and was assigned to a project implementing an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tool as a Change Management Analyst.

What would you say you enjoy most about OCM so far?

I love being the link between the project and the organization as a whole. I get to be on the cutting edge of projects that are moving the business forward with new technologies or strategies, and then act as a translator for all levels of the business. As the "people" person in the room, I love that it's my role to identify pitfalls and develop the strategies that have such an impact on project success.

What made you decide to join ACMP Ohio?

I wanted to expand my knowledge of Change Management through shared leaning from the community. The webinars on acmpglobal.org are great, regular updates on targeted topics, and the programming events have already helped expand my network of OCM professionals that I can reach out to when I run into issues. I think with our growing field, it is critical to use the experience of our peers.

Could you describe your role as a volunteer for ACMP Ohio?

The goal is pretty simple. We want to grow the community in Southwest Ohio through programming and networking events. With the challenge of the current pandemic, we've had to pivot and do more programming during lunches which has been very successful. We're shooting for an event every month and we're also looking to collaborate with other organizations that are related to our field, such as Project Management and Business Communication organizations.

Tell us a little more about yourself. What do you like to do in your free time?

I'm a big soccer fan so on the weekends, I'm usually watching Arsenal (a soccer team from London) or out and about with my wife, Ashley, and puppy, LoLo. I also bake sourdough bread and play guitar. In what free time I have left, I've been working on my SPHR and Scrum Master Certifications.
