RICS & APM Project Leadership Conference 2014
Posted by APM on 17th Dec 2013
The Association for Project Management (APM) is once again partnering with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) to host a one day conference that looks at project leadership. Taking place on 25th February 2014 at Parliament Square, London, this years conference considers the direct needs of our membership to discuss new, cutting-edge thought.
Book by Wednesday 15th January 2014 to take advantage of the early bird booking rate of just 150 + VAT for APM members. The delegate rate for those who are not a member of APM or RICS will be 234 + VAT.
The RICS and APM Project Leadership Conference 2014 is designed to look at the key factors of various sized projects that lead to success. Delegates will get the opportunity to hear valuable presentations from a number of influential speakers.
This years programme of speakers includes; Peter Hansford, Government chief construction advisor, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills; Donnie MacNicol, author, RICS & APM Stakeholder Engagement Guidance Notes; Ian Murdoch, NSCC State of Trade Consultant & Visiting Fellow, Westminster University; Julian Bullen, project director, The Clarkson Alliance; Project Leadership coach Susanne Madsen; Julian Foster, programme director at Heathrow Terminal 2 and Sheilina Somani, principal, Positively Project Management.
The programme offers a chance to look at the UK Government Construction Strategy and Infrastructure Cost Review Implementation Plan. The aim of this plan is to drive cost efficiency in the construction industry. It is expected to result in a 20% reduction in cost of construction over four years, including potential savings of up to 3billion annually.
This covers both economic and infrastructure projects of which about 40% are delivered through the public sector. This issue is something which must be tackled at early project planning stage and so plays a key role in this event.

This years conference focuses on people. After a long discussion in recent years of processes and technology, there still seems to be a gap in where project performance can really be improved. It is now the view of this conference that leadership is a prime driver.
