North West branch conference 2017
Following the huge success of last year’s conference, APM North West branch has this year collaborated with the APM People SIG to develop a distinctive, educational and interactive day conference, different to any other you will have attended.
The project profession is finally awakening to the fact that successful projects are in fact delivered through people. Leading people therefore plays a vital role to project success. Leadership is explicitly emphasised in relation to 3 critical success factors in APM’s 2015 research study Conditions for project success.
Despite understanding the importance of leadership, evidence suggests that the existing project management body of knowledge and training programmes typically provide limited perspectives on leadership that are often inadequate for meeting demands of complexity and uncertainty.
With this is mind, the North West branch and People SIG have put together an interactive one day conference that looks to assist turning project managers into leaders.
This year’s conference will:
- provide a range of learning experiences, both in terms of topic and format
- provide practical learning that will help delegates improve project work
- provide excellent networking opportunities with other like-minded project professionals
The North West branch will be celebrating its 30th anniversary at the conference with a free drinks reception following the conference.
Join us for what will be a fun, informative and collaborative conference!
This year's keynote speaker: Stephen Carver
Stephen Carver, a seasoned raconteur and much sought after speaker whose unique story-telling style makes him a firm favourite with audiences, will demonstrate how and help us to develop our own leadership skills.
Currently Stephen is working with top academics in Cranfield, in order to identify the leadership traits of projects and programme managers.
This event is suitable for professionals with any level of experience.
