Frazer-Nash will be headline sponsor of the Association for Project Management South Wales and West of England (APM-SW) Branch Conference, taking place on 12 and 13 October.
With a theme of ‘The Project Team of the Future’, the two-day conference will explore how project teams can diversify and adapt to embrace the opportunities of a digital future.
Frazer-Nash Director, Rupert Bridges, said:
“I’m really pleased that we’re sponsoring the APM-SW Branch conference, which will be hosting two packed days of interesting discussions on the many ways in which project management is evolving, and the challenges and opportunities that project managers face.
“We already know that project management requires a broad range of skills, from people management and communication to negotiating and budgeting. But, as we move swiftly towards an ever-more digital future, there will be an increasing range of technological tools that project teams can embrace and adopt to help them to succeed.”
Day 1, on 12 October, will focus on technology and tools, the conference will consider how data, communication, artificial intelligence (AI) and automation tools can help project teams succeed in the future. Day 2, 13 October, will look at the new skills that will be needed to form and lead the best project teams, as well as what organisations can do to encourage teams to reach their maximum potential.
Frazer-Nash’s Nick PD Jones, who is chair of the APM-SW will deliver the welcome address and facilitate a discussion session on how technology can help the project teams of the future on Day 2, and there will be a range of expert speakers presenting at the event, including Frazer-Nash Group Leaders, Kathryn Yardley and David Wyse. Kathryn will explore ‘AI in Project Management’ at 12.15 on Day 1; while David will propose that ‘With more rapid projects, comes less control and the need for more Trust’ at 11.30 on Day 2.
