After a buffet lunch, John Williams (APM Branch Corporate sub-committee deputy chair) facilitated an interactive session enabling sharing by corporate members of their own experiences in setting up PMOs/

Nick Jones (APM Senior Corporate Membership Development Manager) introduced latest APM news on the APM model for professionalism, the new competence framework, and updated on APM qualifications, RPP and the latest on chartership.
