The Midlands branch recently held its' Annual General Meeting with Paul Christmas, branch Chair gave an insight into the revival of the branch after the short hiatus caused by the reorganisation of the branch.  Progress is now being achieved in events, HEIs and corporate liaison with events planned throughout the coming financial year.

Paul took the opportunity of thanking the committee and volunteers for their sterling work throught the year and it was obvious from the enthusiasm of the volunteers that the branch would grow from strength to strength with many events already being progressed and many others planned.  The highlight for the year will be a black tie dinner in Luton with an after dinner presentation on the rebuild of Harry, Stalag Luft III where the great escape took place including a veteran POW who took part in the great march.

Financially the branch generated an underspend however this was due more to the major changes to the organisation which had a knock on effect on the delivery of events.  

The new committee was presented to the membership and they were all voted on en bloc to represent the branch throughout the coming year.

The AGM was followed by a thought provoking presentation by Carol Osterweil who discussed how insights from brain science can help manage projects and influence change.

Carol's presentation can be viewed below.

Graduate project manager profile

12 May 2017

I was very proud to have been named 2016 Young Project Manager of the Year for the Midlands. Following my early career change I have worked hard to build a career in this industry, so to have gained this kind of recognition was very gratifying.
