- Health, Safety, Environment and Community
Many projects now need to take Health, Safety, Environment and Community into consideration as a part of the planning and stakeholder engagement activities for triple bottom line consideration. Share your experiences in how and why Project Managers cannot afford to ignore the potential negative and positive risks these considerations can provide.
- Communities of Practice – Methodologies and Case Studies
Project Management in practice: Agile, Waterfall, Prince2, Critical Path, Critical Chain, what’s right for what projects? Can you use Agile to build a rail line? This is a stream for practitioners and pracademics to encourage further development in the knowledge bank of Project Management. Why, when and where the tool is right for the task under your control (or where the tool is not right for a particular application).

Change is the only constant, but no one said it was easy! Tell the world how you lead the team that brought about cultural or operational practice change.
- Talented PM – Leadership, Inspiration
Project Managers are leaders, this stream is looking for the presenters to inspire us to be better than average. You could be a pracademic or a motivational speaker or just someone who has a lot of people asking you “how do I do this?”.
