Ednah Nzombe

MSc Project Management, University of Westminster 

My greatest achievement has been writing an informative and well researched dissertation that shed light on the importance of strategic and systems thinking to project management to ensure project success. I enjoyed attending the APM conference and I will be attending further events in the future - the networking and information attained was beneficial. It was great that I was able to attend thanks to the Student member discount I received. I will also apply for a more senior membership upon completion of my degree. I look forward to contributing practically to projects in the near future.
