A need for Innovation
During a discussion in 2015 we were struck by the lack of an event to bring together people from all industries and sectors who were involved in projects using a variety of project management methodologies. At the time we found a variety of single-track events very much focused on one particular methodology, but didn’t allow for the cross pollination of ideas within the larger family of project management.
Later that year the first PM Summit was created as something unique to be of interest to both the veteran and the inexperienced project manager, allowing the exchange of ideas with peers, while networking with innovators and decision makers who affect industry and global change.
While the live industry-focused summit experience is at the core of what we do, we’ve seen that over the years our event has evolved into a community of people both absorbing and sharing their knowledge with all those involved in conversations over networking breaks. Knowledge is of no value unless cultivated and shared, and PM Summit events create environments for sharing, while delegates allow growth to take place.
Great Talks from Leading Minds
Representing our industry at all levels, our speakers are key disruptors and influencers in their field, driving everything from large global corporates to awe inspiring personal projects. They explore a range of topics from workflows and best practice solutions to soft skills, emerging technologies, diversity, and scaling, while re-igniting the passions essential for those working as a project manager.
With ever growing numbers of attendees each year, PM Summit events are fast becoming Ireland’s most inspirational, educational and vocational conferences for multi-track project management professionals and industries. Our attendees are a gathering of eclectic project managers looking beyond their own industries to experience and explore new ideas from other sectors. By bringing together as diverse a group of project management professionals as possible, we create a unique opportunity for true knowledge transfer and maturing of ideas. PM Summit is about the creation of a Community of Practice for project, program and portfolio management professionals.
Inclusivity, not exclusivity
PM Summit is our major one-day annual event that takes place in Dublin, Ireland. Thanks to our inclusive environment and the growing trend of female speakers and attendees at our main event, in October 2019 we will host our first Women in Project Management (WiPM) one-day event at the Convention Centre, Dublin.
We established the PM Summit in 2015 in response to the growing trend in all business sectors towards incorporating project management into their organisations. In today’s environment the importance and visibility of Project Management continues to grow and has never been higher or more vital!
