1200 Project Managers attend Brisbane Project Event


1200 Project Managers attend Brisbane Project Event

"Brisbane will host more than 1000 project professionals from over 50 countries at the IPMA World Congress 2011 in October 2011", well as they say that was yesterday's news.

In reality the conference 'banked over' at 1200; project managers from all over the world, five contents, twenty countries and every state of Australia, they started streaming in a week before the conference and many stayed on to enjoy the Australian hospitality.  The 25th IPMA World Congress, hosted by the Australian Institute of Project Management, was a run away success. 

Brisbane put on its best front, with a gentle warning from thunderstorms over the preceding weekend, but sunny skies and warm weather to match the local hospitality during the congress.  Delegates were greeted with local food and wine at Street's Beach, a 'small' beach party for a thousand or so guests.  Tuesday night saw a glittering awards night at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre for more than 1000 project managers and their partners to see national and international prize winning projects, and awards given to leading project practitioners and project management researchers. 

The Congress Convener reviewed the program:  "Without a doubt the cracker speaker was the closing keynote, Dr Fiona Woods, AM.  Dr Woods spoke to the international audience about the dedication and focus required of professionals involved in events like the Bali Bombing Burns Recovery.  Dr Woods spoke of her own experience as a leader, a leader without formal training, but as the audience attests a leader of great renown.

Guests marvelled to the lead act of the Leading Men, a blockbuster Australian act, who wowed the iternational audience by closing their act by singing classic Australian tunes in Italian to the beaming smile of the International President of IPMA, Mr Roberto Mori from Milan.
