Last week I attended a conference put on by the APM’s Enabling Change SIG. Entitled ‘Inspiring Positive Change in Complex and Uncertain Times’, the event was a useful reminder of the volume of fast moving change that we are all expected to absorb.

I have met many committed, enthusiastic people and established new relationships. I understand more about how APM operates and appreciate the hard work that goes into volunteering.
