APM Conference 2020 - Power of Projects - Manchester


CANCELLED 

Following the latest government advice on social gatherings, we have chosen to cancel this year’s Power of Projects conference in Manchester (previously scheduled to take place on Tuesday 24 June).
We are looking at alternative ways to deliver these events virtually.
 We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused. However, the wellbeing of our delegates, staff, stakeholders and the wider community is our utmost priority; we therefore feel this is the correct course of action. We will continue to follow health advice from the Government with regard to future planned events.

THE MANCHESTER CONFERENCE WILL COVER THREE MAIN THEMES...

YOUR PATH TO SUCCESS

This stream offers project professionals the tools to not only invest in themselves, but also their wider teams. Come to this stream to improve your employability skills, learn about managing your mental health in a demanding project space, and find out how important diversity of thought is to project teams.

FUTURE THINKERS

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. This stream will help you prepare yourself for the project environment of the future and champion innovative projects that tackle climate change.

DELIVERY SKILLS TOOLKIT

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 projects for success and getting more from lessons learned.
