APM is pleased to announce Matthew Taylor, chief executive of the RSA will be taking to the stage at the upcoming APM Project Management Conference 2018, London, sponsored by Hyde Park Solutions.  

Matthew joins keynote speakers Hannah Fry and Rohit Talwar who will punctuate a day of exploration into how we as a profession can future proof our projects and ourselves against new technology, AI and how we can embrace new ways of working.

In July 2017 Matthew published the report Good Work: the Taylor review of modern practices’; an independent review into modern employment, which was commissioned by the UK Prime Minister.

The review found seven steps towards fair and decent work with realistic scope for develop and fulfilment, many that resonate with the aims and views of the conference:  

“It is vital to individuals and the health of our economy that everyone feels they have realistically attainable ways to strengthen their future work prospects and that they can, from the beginning to the end of their working life, record and enhance the capabilities developed in formal and informal learning and in on the job and off the job activities.”

A regular commentator on Daily Politics and Newsnight and a panellist on Radio Four’s Moral Maze Matthews unique insight and experience that he will bring to the conference draws on past roles including Labour Party Director of Policy and Deputy General Secretary and Chief Executive of the IPPR, the UK’s leading left of centre think tank.

With less than one month to go until the conference Matthew completes the day’s programme of world class speakers who will reveal valuable insights from real world lessons learnt and probe what it means to be ready for tomorrow’s challenges.

The conference will take place at Central Hall, Westminster, Storey's Gate, London, SW1H 9NH on Wednesday 25th April 2018.
