Welcome to my site that supports my primary calling as an instructor both online and in the classroom.  I teach, prepare and develop courses, lectures and seminars in colleges and for private industry; I augment and support these activities with the preparation of specialized training videos. 

My professional consulting background includes the preparation, analysis, implementation, independent audit and the review of project management plans and proposals, in the principles and practices of leadership and in business systems analysis; my experience in these areas spans across Canadian industry and government, in government agencies in the continental United States, and in the Middle East.

 In the broad area of project management, I bring to my courses and consulting assignments a detailed knowledge of the structure and application of the PMBOK based on teaching and a wide variety of consulting experiences; and a formal background in leadership and business analysis.

 Bids have been lost and projects become unprofitable when based on a plan that does not reflect the extent and complexity of the requirements or the reality of their implementation.


“Instructor was great. Very helpful with his comments on assignments and can tell he has a lot of expertise in the area of project management.”

“I consider Bill Bowen a real asset for Algonquin College, as he has lots of PM experience and exceptional training skills”


"Bill was a great facilitator to work with. He was very helpful with all his feedback and explained the concepts clearly.”


“I appreciated a lot Bill's video on YouTube, where he explained more certain PM concepts and walk me as a student, through different steps of a Network diagram, Project Plan and other study material. I found that his presentation was really helpful on my understanding of the assignments requirements and very useful for a student and not only. He should continue doing that. I considered also, very useful his comments on my assignments(the marking criteria), which I could learn also, from.
Was a very pleasant learning experience.
Thank you, Bill”
