World-class Paralympian to speak at APM Conference
Posted by APM on 24th Nov 2015
In keeping with the event theme, Marc Woods will take us on his inspirational life journey and explore how to create a world-class mindset that can transform you, your organisation and our profession.
A keen swimmer, Marc was distraught to find out a cancer diagnosis at the early age of 17 would lead to him having his leg amputated below the knee as a result.
Despite this setback and with his sheer determination of making the best of his situation, he stepped up his training. Eighteen months later, he represented Great Britain - and went on to win twelve Paralympic medals, four of them gold.
With thrilling footage, a terrific sense of humour and complete lack of sentimentality, he demonstrates his passion for life and shows what can happen when we learn to focus on those things which are under our control.
Showcasing other journeys to achieve world class within the profession; the APM Conference gives you the opportunity to learn from influential speakers sharing thought leadership. This will help you to stay up-to-date with the latest techniques for successful project delivery.
