APM Project Management Conference 2017
APM, the Chartered body for the project profession, held it's award-winning Project Management Conference, sponsored by 20|20 Business Insight on 27 April 2017 at the Barbican, London. The APM conference has a long-held reputation for bringing together the world’s most influential and thought-provoking speakers from your profession and it certainly lived up to that reputation on the day.
Theme: Making the mould – Transform, diversify, revolutionise
The world is in a constant state of accelerating change. The ways we embrace and manage that change must constantly evolve to meet new demands. Building a world-class profession in a constantly changing world means challenging norms and thinking, breaking and then re-making the mould, reinventing project management for a new generation.
