This has created great myths in our profession that cloud both our perception and decision making. The APM Project Management Conference 2015 sponsored by 20|20 Business Insight will dispel these myths by uncovering the evidence that will increase the likelihood of successfully delivering projects, programmes and portfolios.

The award-winning writer and “Bad Science” columnist for The Guardian will be joined by some of the world’s most influential and thought provoking speakers from within the project management profession and thought leaders from outside. They will remove the barriers to thinking by testing existing practices and uncovering new ways to manage projects.

Now is the best time to book a place as APM is offering the biggest saving on delegate rates for the 2015 conference. You could save up to £194 if you take advantage of this offer before 23rd October 2014.

Those who attend the event at Kings Place in London will also receive a copy of Dr. Ben Goldacre’s book Bad Pharma – the UK top ten bestseller. In his new book, Ben puts the $600bn global pharmaceutical industry under the microscope, to reveal flaws throughout the ecosystem of evidence based medicine.

Ben; an author, broadcaster and medical doctor who trained at Oxford and London; specialises in unpicking scientific claims made by scaremongering journalists, government reports, pharmaceutical corporations, PR companies and “quacks”.

More world-class speakers are yet to be announced. The APM Conference chaired by Mary McKinlay will provide an excellent opportunity to network with the senior figures in the profession helping participants to raise their profiles and develop their careers.

A finalist at the recent Conference Awards, the APM Conference will showcase numerous organisations at the forefront of the profession at an exhibition. This will provide an opportunity to discover the latest products and services that can generate a competitive advantage for business.
