Capabilities of Project Managers in the modern age

What skills will the life science project manager need to meet the challenges of future years - and how will the position and expectations of project managers and teams shift in that time? PIPMG is looking at this in the coming year and we’d like you to share your own views and experiences, as well as hearing from some expert speakers on the topic and networking with colleagues. Delivered in partnership with the APM, this meeting will be free to attend. Come along to our London venue for a really interesting afternoon, followed by early evening networking, drinks and canapés!

Up to 2 CPD points are available to people attending the full meeting.

Bookable Sessions

Meeting + drinks and canapes (11th Jul 2019) Cost: Free.
