The Association for Project Management will be delving into Durrell’s successful ‘Go Wild Gorillas’ campaign as the key theme in its second webinar of the year.
The campaign raised £1,146,500 for the Trinity-based zoo’s state-of-the-art indoor enclosure for its gorilla family.
The webinar will focus on the project behind the campaign and will provide insight into Durrell’s ‘Rewild our world’ vision for a wilder, healthier, and more colourful future.
Carl Ibbet, APM Channel Islands Chair, said: “Following an informative discussion with Durrell’s Fundraising Manager, Beth Gallichan, APM learnt about how the Go Wild Gorillas project originated, the campaign objectives, the risks, the highs, and lows and the challenges of managing the project.
“These are a few elements which are experienced by project professional on a daily basis and therefore, we wished to host the event for all to benefit and learn from.
“The project profession contributes to many industry sectors such as financial services, telecommunications and the building industry, so being able to offer an insight to the public on the project support behind the conservation of wildlife is truly unique”
The APM is the chartered body for the project profession. With over 30,000 individual members and more than 500 organisations, the APM is the largest professional body for project management in Europe.
The Delivering for Durrell webinar will be held virtually on Tuesday 6 April 2021 from 12:30 to 13:30 and is open to APM and non-APM members.
