In our increasingly connected, globalised and digital world, the need for collaboration to deliver project and programme success is growing.

This conference explores the challenges we face as a profession in a world of ever more complex programmes.  Practitioners need to manage: differing norms and behaviours, increased expectations that projects will be delivered well, the culture of short-termism whilst all the time providing transparent evidence of efficient delivery; geographically dispersed and culturally diverse remote working teams.

Join some of the profession's leading programme practitioners to share insights, ideas and techniques for how to best prepare for success in global and highly collaborative programmes.  The conference has a mixture of theory, applied good practice and real life experience – with takeaways for everyone to digest and use in programme delivery.
