From 26th to 28th of October, Hersonissos (Greece) was the center of the project management world, for young professionals. Over 80 young people from 18 countries spent almost one week exploring the insights of the PM world, sharing their experience and planning future collaborations during the IPMA Global Young Crew Workshop.

The Global Young Crew Workshop is an event organized by the IPMA Young Crew and held each year in a different location. Its goal is to provide the participants with a unique training and networking experience, to get them further involved in the Young Crew activities, and to integrate Young Crew participants within the IPMA Family.

“Organising such an important event is an equally exciting and challenging endeavor” states Jannis Soulos, Project manager of the GYCW 2012. “By managing an international team within the IPMA one learns very much and because of the inspiring motivation, willpower and pleasant atmosphere it is also a lot of fun. I can only recommend organising a Young Crew event in your country“.

During the three days of the Global Young Crew Workshop and the following days of IPMA World Congress, participants learned from trainers all around the world, met people interested in the same areas of expertise, shared their knowledge, and bonded with other Young Crew members. “It is truly the place to meet the relevant people in Project Management”, declared Dr. Daniel Collado-Ruiz, 2013 Chairman-elect of the IPMA Young Crew Management Board. “This event combines a perfect networking atmosphere with timely discussions on the present and future of Project Management. Definitely something not to miss”.
