The APM Conference 2011 is now open for bookings, so if you are quick and book your place by the 31st July you could save up to £90 off the full ticket price*. There are special discounted rates for both APM members and non members, so everyone has the opportunity to see some of the best speakers from the profession.
This event is not to be missed as it is the industry’s key calendar date with a long-held reputation for attracting the country’s most senior and influential speakers and more than a half a decade of agenda setting content featuring the country’s most innovative and groundbreaking projects.
The theme for the conference is New world, new project management, which looks at how the profession will rise to the challenges resulting from climate change, technological advances, globalisation, social networks, public health, security and economic regeneration. These challenges require fundamentally new ways of making sense and shaping a world we can neither fully control, nor fully understand.
Professor Darren Dalcher, Director of the National Centre for Project Management, will be chairing the conference that issues a ‘call to action’ to address the challenges of the new world by defining a new kind of project management.
The first speakers for the conference have also been announced with Chief Operating Officer for the new Efficiency and Reform Group, Ian Watmore, taking the conference platform. Ian will be joined by Jeremy Beeton, Director General of the Government Olympic Executive, which is part of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. More speakers are still to be announced, so please visit APM’s news page to see the latest.
