We are pleased to announce that the chief executive of the newly formed Infrastructure and Projects Authority, Tony Meggs, has been confirmed as keynote speaker for the APM Project Management Conference 2016 sponsored by 20|20 Business Insight

In November 2015, the government announced that the Infrastructure UK (IUK) and the Major Projects Authority (MPA) were to merge into one body, bringing the government’s expertise, knowledge and skills at managing and delivering major economic projects under one roof for the first time. 

This new organisation became into existence on 1st January 2016 reporting jointly to the Chancellor and Minister for the Cabinet Office.

Former chief executive of the Major Projects Authority Tony Meggs and now chief executive of the Infrastructure Projects Authority (IPA) is a senior executive with significant experience as a functional leader in the private sector and has led collaborations with several businesses and universities. 

Tony's current mission is to bring together in the IPA for the first time, financing, delivery and assurance of major projects like High Speed 2, the Thames Tideway Tunnel and Universal Credit.

In his keynote address, Tony will talk about the challenges his organisation faces providing assurance, support and advice to major projects across Government in light of last Autumn's Spending Review and the Single Departmental Plans. 

He will discuss what foundations that have already been laid in Government to improve project delivery and his vision for the future.

At the conference you will also hear from other world-class speakers such as:

This year’s conference will explore how you, your organisation and our profession can transform into being recognised as World Class.
