THE LONDON CONFERENCE WILL COVER THREE MAIN THEMES...

PROJECT LEADERS

This stream offers project professionals the tools to not only invest in themselves, but also their wider teams. Come to this stream to develop your project leadership skills, improve wellbeing in your project teams and understand new ways to manage change.

PRIDE IN PROJECTS

Every day the project profession delivers another ground-breaking project; whether it’s a research project to cure disease or implementing new technology to deliver renewable energy – the future is now. We’re challenging the role of the project professional in climate change and offering you inspiration with ground-breaking project case studies in this stream.

DELIVERING PROJECT SUCCESS

Project professionals never stop learning; this stream aims to equip delegates with valuable tools and techniques to help them to deliver more successful projects. Here we’ll tackle subjects as diverse as the hybrid approach, setting up complex projects for success and getting the most from learning legacies.
