Conference keynote announced
Posted by James Driver on 23rd Jan 2018
APM is pleased to announce awarding-winning futurist Rohit Talwar as a keynote speaker for the APM Project Management Conference 2018, sponsored by Hyde Park Solutions.
Profiled as one of the top ten global future thinkers by the Independent newspaper, Rohit sits primed and ready to launch the conference’s exploration into how the project profession can ‘Future Proof’ itself against the challenges ahead. The conference this year takes place on Wednesday 25 April at Central Hall, Westminster in London.
As a leader in his field, Rohit previously led the largest Horizon Scanning and Futures Programme in Europe for the UK Government, as well as facilitating the consultation for the UK MoD’s major study on Strategic Trends.
His well known mantra of ‘act fast and be first to the future’ is bolstered by major research studies on the future of China, India, the Middle East and the future of meetings and events.
Expelling the myths of robot overlords, Rohit will set the scene of how we, as professionals, can set ourselves on the right trajectory to thrive as we embrace future people, future projects and mega-trends that will affect our futures.
