APM Conference 2017: one month to go
Just one month remains until APM opens the doors to what is billed to be the biggest project management conference of its kind in the UK to be held on 27 April 2017.
With many years of sell-out conferences under its belt, APM has moved its award-winning formula to its biggest venue to date, the Barbican performing arts centre, London.
Here the 2017 APM Conference, sponsored by 20|20 Business Insight, will present an array of industry-leading speakers from a range of sectors, including former MP and cabinet minister Michael Portillo and Sam El-Jouzi - Director Rail, CH2M.
This year the APM Conference will focus on creating a profession ready to face whatever challenges emerge as a result of growing demand for well-skilled project professionals, as well as growing political and economic challenges - including Brexit. Already large corporations are calling on specialist Brexit project managers - a term not heard of until recently.
To tackle these challenges we must break down the mould of what project management is perceived to be, challenging norms and prescriptive thinking, and then re-making the mould - essentially reinventing project management for a new generation.
Interim results from the 2017 Salary and Market Trends Survey show that over 50 per cent of those aged below 44 expect to require new skills and training in the next five years as they realise they need to keep up with the pace of change in the industry.
The APM Project Management Conference 2017 will leave no assumption unchallenged, providing an insight into the future of our profession; the people, the practices and the projects and how they will transform the world we live in and the way we work.
Following the announcement in January that APM has been awarded a Royal Charter on behalf of the project management profession, the APM Project Management Conference will hold the first national event to mark this significant milestone. This will offer attendees a chance to talk to APM about its future plans and provide the opportunity to network with the leaders of the profession at a celebratory drinks reception immediately after the conference.
