Glasgow 2014 to be focus at APM's Scottish Conference
Posted by APM on 9th Apr 2014
As Glasgow prepares for the 20th Commonwealth Games this summer APM will be using the sporting event as a source of inspiration for delegates at the upcoming Scottish Conference on 23rd April.
The 20|20 Business Insight sponsored conference will feature a number of inspirational speakers including two people directly involved with organising and broadcasting the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Herv Rey, head of overlay at Glasgow 2014 Limited, is a project management professional with 20 years global experience on complex and international projects. He joined Glasgow 2014 at the end of 2011 and is currently in charge of all temporary infrastructures across 35 competition and non-competition venues.
Herv said: “I have been involved in all stages of projects from inception to completion, carried out various responsibilities and enjoyed each new challenge. I appreciate working in this dynamic and ever-changing environment, on large projects where pressure is steady and deadlines are non-negotiable."
Providing good practice and invaluable experience alongside Herv at the event titled Inspiring success will be Tony Gavin, head of broadcast operations for Glasgow 2014.
Tony is very experienced in leading games broadcasting activities and has worked throughout the world on multiple sporting events including the Indian Cricket Premier League, Winter Games, Asian Games and PGA European Tour.
The Broadcast Operations group is responsible, through the host broadcaster (Sunset + Vine Global Television), for producing and distributing unbiased television and radio signals of the games. Rights holding broadcasters, for instance the BBC, use these to broadcast the games in their home countries.
Completing the speaker programme will be Stephen Carver, lecturer and consultant in project and programme management at Cranfield University School of Management; Donnie MacNicol, consultant, trainer and founder of Team Animation Ltd; Rhona Shepherd, founder of Red Sky Management; David Stewart, managing director of Taynuilt Associates Ltd; and Matt Taylor, who is an international higher purpose performance coach.

Now in its fifth year the APM Scottish Conference will take place in two weeks’ time at the Thistle Hotel on Cambridge Street – so don’t miss out, book your place today.
The sporting theme follows on after the conference at the evening dinner at the exclusive Glasgow venue, The Corinthian Club. After dinner speaker will be Scottish Olympic Athlete, Lee McConnell.
