Ireland's most diverse conference for project, program and portfolio management professionals, will take place in the Convention Centre, Dublin, on Tuesday, 17th July. The conference is open to current practitioners and aspiring project managers. A record 350 delegates are expected to attend this year and the summit will feature three keynote speakers and 15 presentations across three separate tracks.

Now in its fourth consecutive year, the PM Summit aims to attract a diverse group of project management professionals, creating a forum for the transfer of knowledge and exploration of new ideas. Unlike other project management events, the PM Summit caters to all sectors of industry, from engineering to pharmaceutical, from government bodies to IT and beyond, and is not aligned with any one institution, professional body or methodology. The tagline being inclusivity not exclusivity.

Experts from a range of industries will provide advice to delegates on how to integrate effective project management into diverse business types. Keynote presentations will be given by Oscar winning film producer, Lord David Puttnam; Paul Adamson, a renowned motivational speaker; and James Sweetman, executive coach, trainer and author.

Lord Puttnam will refer to his experiences of producing award-winning films such as The Killing FieldsThe Mission and Chariots of Fire and focus on how to project manage within the creative industries through his presentation, "Lights, Camera, Action – Project Management". 

Paul Adamson will provide delegates with tips on how they can improve their project management performance through a deeper understanding of their own psychology and that of their team. Finally, motivational speaker James Sweetman, will talk about authentic leadership in the age of change. The confidence to communicate effectively is a skill that is vital in successful project management; this keynote address will offer attendees advice on how to boost their self-confidence to engage with colleagues and peers more effectively. 

The conference spans all industries and project management methodologies, from the traditional Waterfall approach to the more modern methods of Agile and Lean. We have 18 presentations across three tracks, so there is something for everyone." 

PM Summit was established in 2015 in response to the growing trend in all business sectors towards incorporating project management into their organisations. The conference offers excellent networking opportunities, providing a forum where project management practitioners can learn from one another and grow their knowledge, adding real value to their professional development.
