Supporting the PMI National Conference 2019

Auxilion will be attending the 2019 Project Management National Conference in Fota Island Hotel, Cork on Thursday 28th February.

The Project Management National Conference is Ireland’s largest annual conference for project managers with over 300 delegates from across Ireland expected to attend. The event is held by the Ireland Chapter of PMI which is focused on promoting project management principals within the community, business, and practitioners by bringing PMI members in Ireland together.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘From Idea to Reality’. President of the Ireland Chapter of PMI, Pat Lucey said: “The 2019 conference, themed From Idea to Reality, will provide a unique opportunity to explore how project management is utilised to deliver projects from conception to completion.” The national conference is an opportunity for project management professionals across IT, public sector, construction, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing to gain insight from leading experts in the industry along with well-known Irish and international figures who are making waves in their respective fields

Attendees will hear from leading experts in the industry along with well-known Irish and international figures who are progressing in their field. Lucey has also stated that ‘‘All our speakers have used key project management skills to deliver their ideas into reality, whether it is designing state-of-the-art homes, winning a World Cup medal or utilising disruptive technologies to achieve results.”

The line up looks to make for some very interesting debates and provide plenty of food for thought.  Speakers include:

  • Architect Dermot Bannon: Dermot will discuss his experiences and explain how to successfully communicate disruptive ideas to project stakeholders in his talk entitled ‘Driving Change through Creativity & Disruptive Thinking’, Dermot
  • Ireland hockey player, Yvonne O’Brien will be describing her team’s journey to the hockey world cup final.

Attendees will also hear from the likes of Danny Curran of Aid:Tech Christine Barrett who director of inside sales at Microsoft, Jim Snyder the co-founder of the PMI.

Skills shortage

Ensuring the availability of skills and resources at the right time can be difficult for many organisations especially around the area of project management. In a recent study Auxilion found that three quarters of Irish IT Departments are finding it hard to source and retain the right internal technology staff. To overcome this difficult Auxilion offers a number of flexible project delivery solutions that gives our clients access to a combination of our people, processes and tools ensuring consistent managed project delivery at a reduced cost.

If you are attending the event, we hope you will pop over to our stand. Our team will be on hand to discuss our services and open project management roles.  We look forward to meeting the delegates on the day.
