Last week Casseo had the pleasure of participating  in the Mid-West Project Management Forum hosted at the Kemmy Business School by  University of Limerick. This Forum is a fantastic initiative advocating best practice and creates Networking, Collaboration and Learning opportunities for Project, Change & Transformation professionals in the Mid-West region.

To date over 30 companies across 11 diverse industries have engaged in the Forum which is testament that while only on event #6 the Forum is most definitely meeting a previously unmet requirement and is being very well received.

Initiated by Dell Technologies, Limerick at the end of 2017, supported by a number of various companies in Mid-West Region and the Project Management Institute (PMI) the forum continues to go from strength to strength. It’s also worth noting that attendance contributes towards your Professional Development Units (PDU’s).

The theme for this event was ‘The future Project Manager’ and the Forum addressed a wide range of topics under the following main headings;

What does good Project Management look like?

 – The upcoming trends and challenges being faced by Project Management professionals

These topics were addressed via an interactive panel discussion that welcomed the fantastic level of engagement received from attendees. Expertly facilitated by Ross Redmond from Northern Trust the panel was made up of number of esteemed speakers across a range of industries including Casseos own Elizabeth Doyle ; Dr. John Lannon & James Bowles.
