Does risk management manage your risks? Chair of the Association for Project Management's Risk Specific Interest Group (SIG) to lead session at Project Challenge 2017, 22-23 March 2017, Olympia, London. 

APM Risk SIG chair and head of Turner & Townsend’s risk management function at Heathrow Airport, Kenneth Evans will be taking to the stage at this year’s Project Challenge, the UK’s leading independent show for projects, programmes, process and resource professionals.

Drawing on past experiences from his role as senior risk manager at Thames Tideway Tunnel and his current work delivering a £3.6bn delivery programme at Heathrow Airport, Kenneth will help delegates explore: Does risk management manage your risks?

“We’ve all heard the more common complaints about risk management: that it’s just about making risk registers, that all it’s for is justifying a project contingency, that it’s too complicated for what it needs to do.”

Kenneth will take delegates through some simple ways they can start to identify their most important risks, manage them properly, and how to know when they really need a more sophisticated system.

There is also the opportunity to speak directly with an APM representative on stand 140 about all the products and services offered by APM, including membership, qualifications, events, publications and much more.

Project Challenge will take place in the world famous Olympia Conference Centre in London between 22 and 23 March. Visitors can learn from leading industry experts from over 30 free high quality presentations and discuss opportunities with a wide range of exhibiting organisations.

Also representing APM will be Tatiana Kotrikova who will be revealing her lessons learnt from across almost a decade of working in the rail industry and as a principle contractor focused on representing clients and manging project portfolios.

Drawing on some of the topmost complexities throughout her experience and drawing on lessons learnt from overcoming past issues and success. The session will allow delegates to walk away with hints and tips which could help drive successful project delivery instantly.
