Amy Williams MBE announced as keynote speaker for the 2018 APM Scottish Conference
APM is pleased to announce solo Winter Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams MBE as its keynote speaker for the 2018 APM Scottish Conference.
Recently elected to carry the Olympic torch for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, Amy claimed Team GB’s sole victory at the Vancouver Winter Olympics and put the skeleton bobsleigh event firmly on the map.
With an established career competing against world-class Olympians in challenging conditions, Amy will offer advice on what it takes to prepare both mentally and physically for high-pressure situations and will look at resiliency in relation to bouncing back after a big low.
Drawing on her experience, Amy argues there are surprising benefits to adversity and uncertainty in sport, which can relate to our own business environment. She asks what companies can do to develop the skills competitors are lacking, as she did in Vancouver; by learning the track much quicker than the other nations could, she had more time to fine tune the run. She highlights the importance of focusing on the things you can change and control, rather than the things you can’t.
APM’s Scottish Conference, to be held in Edinburgh on Thursday 22 March 2018, will focus on shaping the next generation of project leaders, celebrating the Scottish Government’s Year of the Young Person initiative.
Delegates new to the profession will have the opportunity to network with industry leaders and will be given insight and inspiration to springboard their career.
For those already operating in our profession, the day will offer the latest updates to skills and training and learn the benefits and importance of nurturing the next generation of our profession to ensure future project success.
