Association for Project Management (APM) is pleased to announce the return of face-to-face events for its branch network.
APM branches adapted quickly during the early days of the global pandemic, pivoting from in-person events, to virtual events held online. This enabled people to continue enjoying the learning and networking benefits of these sessions from the comfort and safety of their own homes.
Despite the advantages, many branch members have stated that they miss face-to-face networking, and meeting peers and colleagues in person. APM has been working hard to reintroduce physical events for some time and is now proud to invite people to the first such events in what it hopes will be a new programme across the UK and beyond.
Upcoming face-to-face events are:
- Mental Health Awareness for Managers, 16 November, Falkirk, Scotland
- Critical Chain: Ensuring Project Collaboration Pays, 25 November, Workington, Cumbria
- Projects Post-COP26 - Reflections, 8 December, Aberdeen, Scotland
- Conflict Management and Resolution, 19 January 2022, Guildford, Surrey
Robert Allen, APM branches manager, yesterday said:
Virtual events have been invaluable for helping us continue to share knowledge and insights with the project profession during the pandemic, but we also know that many people prefer meeting in person. We're therefore delighted to be able to welcome our branch members and others from the project community to face-to-face events once again.
We will continue offering virtual events too, so members of our branches can choose how they'd like to join us, wherever they're based.
