50TH ANNIVERSARY OF PMI TO BE CELEBRATED AT LONDON EVENT
Project Management Institute UK Chapter (PMI UK), part of PMI the world’s leading project management organisation, has announced its plans to celebrate the association’s 50th anniversary at the 2019 Synergy conference in London.
Synergy, PMI UK’s yearly business conference, offers up to 750 delegates from across the project management profession a day of education, entertainment and networking. Taking place from 8:30am to 5pm on Thursday 7th November at The Light on Euston Road, London, the event has the theme of “Project Delivery in the VUCA world” (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous).
Throughout the day ten speakers from the business, creative, education and economy sectors, including PMI Charmain, Randy Black and Twice Sunday Times Best-selling Author, Sophie Sabbage, will take to the stage to offer their expertise on the subject.
Following the conference, attendees are invited to a special after-party at Madam Tussauds on Marylebone Road in London, to mark the 50th anniversary of PMI. During the evening, guests will be treated to a tour of the venue as well as live entertainment, drinks and refreshments.
Chris Field, Chair of the PMI UK, explains: “Our 50th anniversary is a major milestone in our organisation’s history and we wanted to celebrate this at our major event of the year – the London Synergy Conference. We have had a great response already from delegates to the day conference – and as a special thank you, we are delighted to welcome them to the after-party at Madame Tussauds, which should be a fantastic and memorable night!”
