Programme delivery specialists confirmed as speakers for APM conference
Posted by APM on 8th Mar 2016
Enabling delivery of complex programmes to time, cost and scope is a skill that requires experience and extensive knowledge. We are pleased to announce that two industry experts who have delivered on major capital projects will be addressing delegates at the multi-award winning APM Conference, sponsored by 20|20 Business Insight.
Expanding on the theme of project management as a ‘world-class’ profession, our expert speakers will focus on one of three different streams during the conference to be held on 21 April 2016 – individual, organisation or profession - ensuring a rich choice of sessions relevant to the industry.
Under the profession stream strategy director Alistair Kirk will present on High Speed 2 and the opportunities it will bring to the UK. Alistair will also discuss the management approach the organisation utilised in order to ‘bring structure to complexity’, which is aimed at ensuring world-class outcomes for the HS2 project.
Alistair Kirk joined High Speed Two Limited (HS2 Ltd) in September 2014 and is responsible for establishing the programme management framework through which HS2 Ltd will govern and control its work and deliver expected benefits.
Our second speaker, programme director Michael Flynn, will look at what project management as a profession offers to society, the economy and the environment. He will be asking the questions: what does it need to do to be considered a world class profession, how do individuals contribute to this level of recognition and what is APM’s role?
Michael has extensive experience in developing and delivering multi-billion pound complex projects in the rail and energy sectors and is currently leading the New Tube for London programme. Naturally his talk will cover London and TFL, as well as the the APM code of professional conduct.
