  • managed to organize a high quality 2-day virtual event full of insights into the topic of Leadership.

    The participants had the unique opportunity to meet the leading experts passionate about project management from different parts of the world. 18 world-class speakers from 12 countries shared their knowledge and first-hand experience with the conference guests. On top of this, the attendees also had an opportunity to participate in the networking sessions of various formats and visit virtual stands of conference partners and sponsors.

    Some of the takeaways:

  • “There is no one way to lead effectively. Best leaders are those who learn, adapt and align their own experience and strengths!“ – Elena Zagorenko
  • “We are going to be the ones as project leaders who have to build the next generation of normal in this planet.” – Tim Jaques
  • “We are not living in the times of change, we are living in the change of times.” – Peter Coesmans
  • “Developing leadership allows us to grow up not only as a professional but also as a person.” – Aurio Javier de la Cruz Salazar
  • “It is time to start thinking differently about our teams, to build teams which are ready for anything.” – Priya Patra
  • On behalf of IPMA YC, we would like to thank each of the speakers for the enlightening presentations full of valuable tips, for their willingness to dedicate time and share their expertise.

    We also would like to extend our gratitude to everyone who participated. The donation made to the educational projects of Children International – 1 euro per sold conference ticket – will cover 50 sessions of remedial tutoring or computer skills classes for children in need!

    We wouldn’t be able to perform on such a high level without great support from our partners and sponsors: Eveon, a virtual exhibition and conference center, Balsamiq, the maker of the industry-leading rapid wireframing software, Agile Business Consortium, the leading not-for-profit professional body for promoting and enabling business agility worldwide, and ClickUp, a fully customizable productivity software with tasks, docs, and goals in one place.
