Deputy PM to speak at NZ Project Management Conference

Deputy PM to speak at NZ Project Management Conference

The Project Management Institute of New Zealand is pleased to announce that the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Hon Bill English will be speaking at the 19th Annual National Project Management Conference in Auckland on the 11th September 2013.

Hon Bill English will be one of the Keynotes speaking on the opening morning of the Conference, being held at the Rendezvous Grand Hotel in Auckland.

Over 350 Project Management professionals are expected to be in attendance to hear the Minister talk about the economy, the importance of the Project Management profession and the significant role it plays in New Zealand, and particularly the Christchurch Rebuild.

The Project Management Institute is thrilled with the Minister’s attendance. “Mr English’s presence underlines the growing recognition of the Project Management profession and the role that credentialed and experienced Project Managers have to play in organisational and project success” says PMINZ President Helen Telford. “Recent global research shows that for every billion dollars of project budget, $135 million is at risk so in Christchurch that equates to nearly $5.5 billion. Project Managers mitigate that risk and increase the likelihood of projects finishing on time, in budget and meeting their original business intent”.

The Project Management Institute of New Zealand is a professional body of almost 2,000 members and one of 283 Chapters that represents over 700,000 members, credential holders and volunteers worldwide.
