Future Skills, Future Work: Projecting the Future, Challenge Paper Six webinar

Following publication of the sixth and final Challenge Paper in the Projecting the Future (PtF) series, the speaker for this webinar – hosted by APM’s Head of External Affairs David Thomson – will be Patrick Woodman – an experienced policy expert and Editor of Dialogue Magazine.

Patrick’s expertise has played a vital role in the PtF campaign, and in this webinar he will explore some of the key issues highlighted by the Challenge Paper, including: what are the changes taking place in the world of work? What are their implications for the skills needed for success, particularly in the project profession? And how should the profession respond to meet the needs of the future?

In some ways, this Challenge Paper brings the ‘big conversation’ full circle to themes raised in the PtF launch paper. The brief exploration of the key issues provided in the Challenge Paper are a starting point for answering those questions: answers which must also reflect the challenges that have been explored by previous PtF Challenge Papers. The importance of the questions also means that answers can only be developed through collaboration and discussion. This webinar seeks to provide a forum for such collaboration and discussion. We look forward to welcoming you to this webinar, and to working with you to develop a shared view of how the project profession as a whole can realise its potential as a true leadership delivery profession.


Patrick Woodman is a freelance business writer, researcher and communications consultant. He has been working with APM since 2018 on Projecting the Future, and has been the lead author on each of the papers published in the series.

Patrick was previously Head of Research and Advocacy at the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), where he led a research programme spanning a broad range of management and leadership topics including diversity and inclusion, education and skills, productivity and business culture, and the role of middle management.

Patrick is also currently the editor of Dialogue magazine, the quarterly business magazine published by LID Business Media and Duke Corporation Education, the global executive education provider.
