APM National Conference for Women in Project Management 2017
The Chartered body for the project profession's yearly inspirational event, the APM National Conference for Women in Project Management 2017 will be aimed at the progressive project professional.
Projects now and in the future depend on a large and diverse pool of talented professionals. Those working across projects, programmes and portfolios have a critical role to play in providing the breadth and depth of capability needed to ensure project success in the UK and beyond.
Drawing on inspirational keynotes, thought-leaders and innovative employers, this conference will provide delegates with insight and inspiration, encouraging them to become and develop their skills within the project management profession; and explaining how the profession itself will in fact benefit as a result.
The Progressive Project Professional
As the pace of change accelerates and needs grow more complex, the project management profession is expanding in reach and diversity. The response to these changes will define the future of our profession and those working in it. How should the project profession evolve to reflect our changing society, needs and expectations?
The APM National Conference for Women in Project Management returns in 2017 to investigate what it takes to become a progressive project professional; looking at the skills you need to develop the career you want, the inspiring projects you could be working on and the techniques and approaches you will need to meet the demands of projects both today and in the future.
