Three local senior project managers have teamed up to set up a branch of the Association for Project Management in Jersey.
Carl Ibbet (JT), Alex Knowelden (BHP) and Eliot Lincoln (BDO Greenlight) came together to help grow the membership of the APM - the chartered body for the project profession - in Jersey and have invited Ellie Knowelden and Tim Guilbert from Guernsey to join.
With over 30,000 individual members and more than 500 organisations, the APM is one of the largest professional bodies for project management in Europe.
“It is an exciting time for the APM in the Channel Islands," Carl Ibbet commented. "There are already a significant number of APM members here, but there has been no regular forum for the project managers to meet and share our project management experiences. Alex, Eliot and I have organised the first, of what we hope will be many, events to provide a networking opportunity for project managers and hearing about local success stories that underline the benefits that good project management can bring.”
The APM in the Channel Islands will be hosting its first events - including a talk by Daragh McDermott, JT’s Corporate Affairs Director, about the completion of JT’s full-fibre network - on 1 October at the Pomme d'Or.
Mr Knowelden said: “As a profession, project management can be exciting and variable as well as highly demanding. By developing the APM in the Channel Islands, we expect to provide a networking forum for those in our profession, to swap stories, techniques, ideas and generally be in the presence of like-minded project professionals.
"We are hoping to show those who may consider a career in project management what the profession is all about and both guide and support them into one of the most progressive and stimulating careers.”
