The APM Conference is a great opportunity to see the professions most influential speakers. Even more so now as APM have made more great additions to the line-up with Michel Thiry, Jane Royden and Michael Dallas all taking to the conference platform.
Michel Thiry will no doubt be a popular choice for delegates at the Brewery in London on 20th October as he is recognised as a worldwide authority in strategic applications of project, program and value. He has supported the development and implementation of a number of strategic programs for large multinational organisations, including their restructuring as project organisations. With over 35 years of worldwide professional experience Michel has worked in many cultural environments. For the last 15 years, Michel has provided his expertise to major organisations, in various fields, including construction, financial, pharmaceutical, IT and IS, telecom, water treatment, transportation (air and rail), local government and others.
Joining Michel in the line-up is Jane Royden, who will be speaking in the change management stream. Jane will offer up some interesting points on the subject as she has a keen interest in developing an understanding of how the professions of project management and coaching might collaborate to enable individuals, teams and organisations to make quick, effective and lasting beneficial change. Jane is determined to uncover the sorts of things that give us confidence as project, programme and change managers. Since 2002, Jane has been a director at E AND H, leading on projects, management roles and change programmes in the public and not-for-profit sectors.
An ideal addition to the delivering value stream is Michael Dallas, who is one of the worlds leading practitioners of value and risk management with over 20 years experience across all construction sectors. His career began with water engineering in UK, Africa and Seychelles and evolved through manufacturing into project management in the mid eighties, when he specialised in adding value and reducing risk for clients engaged in major projects. In 1997 Michael joined Davis Langdon as partner responsible for developing value and risk management.
