Senior figure from Civil Service to speak at APM Presents

Save for later


UK civil servant Rob Blakemore joins the list of field experts speaking at APM PresentsProject management in practice on 16th October.

Robs presentation at the all-day project fundamentals event will focus on the approach of coaching, mentoring and action learning in the project environment, as part of the APM People SIG session.

He will also discuss the potential advantages of using these approaches and the situations where each of these might give the best results.

The aim of this session will be to give the participants:

  • a better understanding of the basics and benefits of coaching in the context of project assurance
  • the value of action learning in a contextually challenging project environment
  • an understanding of the cultural pre-requisites and diversity of group members.

Now is the best time to book as you will be given the opportunity to choose from a number of APM publications for free. You could save up to 30 if you book to attend this event by 12th September.

Rob will also be joined Roy Millard and Peter Parkes who will be representing the various APM Specific Interest Groups.

Currently working for the civil service, which helps the government develop and implement its policies as effectively as possible, Rob originally became involved with project management in his days as a safety and environmental specialist.

Since completing an MBA in 2002, he has moved into business and systems development and change management, first in the arena of safety software and more recently in the wider context of ICT project management.

Much of his recent project management experience comes from operating in a PMO, where he is developing and applying new project management procedures, encouraging appropriate uptake of 'agile' approaches, improving consistency in governance and approvals activity.
