This brand-new category will give recognition to inspirational projects, programmes and organisations that have made contributions to successful transformational change in the world, society and for the project management community.
Frances and Kathryn Nichols from the Nichols Group said: “It is with great pleasure that we sponsor the Mike Nichols Award for Inspiration in memory of a leading light of project and programme management, who strongly believed in people's innate ability to go above and beyond and inspire the world.”
Mike was an entrepreneur, visionary and an inspiration to all he met, he inspired others to believe in themselves and achieve their dreams.
He passionately championed inspiration in project management, striving to encourage and deliver positive change in the world through successful projects. It was this commitment that was the driving force behind APM’s ambitious vison to create a world in which all projects succeed.
To continue Mike’s legacy, this award offers an opportunity for the profession to acknowledge and celebrate what has been inspirational in the last year.
The inaugural winner of this prestigious award will be announced at the evening ceremony at the London Hilton on Park Lane on Monday 2nd November.
APM president Tom Taylor said: “What an ideal award. There is an absolute synergy between Mike, this “inspirational” category and APM. I like it. It is an intriguing concept and stimulating addition to the APM Awards.”
