Our most popular event of the year, the PM Fair, will take place on Friday, the 4th October 2019 at Hotel Le Plaza in Brussels Center.

Each year, we try to select a topic which is current, trendy and is also relevant to Project Management.  Last year, we highlighted the importance of facilitation skills for the project manager.  This year, our focus will be Digital Disruption - a topic which is seen everywhere and is greatly impacting the way of working in every field. We as Project Managers need to adapt our techniques and styles to the digital world.  Therefore, we have aptly chosen our theme as 

Project Management and Digital Disruption.

Are you ready?

The event preparation is progressing well. I would like to share with you our recent accomplishments and next steps. The speakers have sent their proposals for their speeches and presentations. We have now started the process of selection of the speakers and we are working on the planning of the day.

The selection criteria are based on different elements. The talk itself and how it matches the theme. We also take into consideration all the feedback that we have received from the participants for the previous years' PM Fair. 

Accordingly, I would like to announce 2 speakers that we have already confirmed.

Antonio Nieto-Rodriguez is the creator of concepts such as the Hierarchy of Purpose, or the Project Manifesto which argues that projects are the lingua franca of the business and personal worlds from the C-suite to managing your career or relationships. Antonio has been recently awarded the title of “Thinker of the Month” by the prestigious Thinkers50, who identifies the most influential management thinkers in the world, including Michael Porter, Clayton Christensen, Rita McGrath.

Antonio will be our keynote speaker and will be opening the PM Fair 2019, our annual Belgian congress on Project Management.

 Our second speaker is Harley Lovegrove who participates regularly to the PM Fair.

Harley Lovegrove is the author of four books (Making a Difference, Inspirational Leadership, Transition and The Change Manager’s Handbook). He is also a blogger and  a professional speaker who speaks regularly as a guest lecturer at many of Europe’s top universities and Management schools.
Harley’s career has led him to work in a wide variety of businesses from recruitment to the building industry and transport, from high technology and software development to manufacturing in a wide variety of sectors including; clothing, petro-chemical and medical.

Following the success of Harley’s Master class of last year, Harley has proposed to repeat it this year. There will be two sessions of his Master class - one in the morning and one in the afternoon, with a limited number of participants in each session to make it more beneficial for everyone. It is  therefore, very important for those who want to attend his Master class  to book their place in advance.  We will let you know how to book it in the next update.

 

Finally, I would like to welcome our PM Fair Sponsors.
