Manage South Asia spoke with delegates at the venue to hear their views on the conference.

Aman Sabzwari, project manager, BlueDart Express Limited
The speakers enlightened the audience on how to be agile and hybrid, and develop the practice of looking beyond the obvious especially during uncertain times. I am from the logistics sector but I got an opportunity to network and connect with people from many other sectors.

I appreciate that PMI held such an exciting conference to enable practitioners to network with peers from different industries and organizations.

Kudos to PMI for bringing project managers together and helping them build their career and achieve professional growth.

Amit Agarwal, general manager, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) Ltd.
I found the conference interesting but I felt that most of the speakers focused on the theoretical aspects of project management. I would have appreciated more had they cited first-hand experiences for a better understanding of new project managers.

I attended the conference to meet like-minded project managers from different sectors and understand the practices used by them. I now have new perspectives on how we can work with people from across the globe, how we can empower people across ranks to take the right decisions and how to improve projects operationally.

I thoroughly enjoyed both days; the sessions were interesting, productive and informative. The discussion on ‘Navika Sagar Parikrama’ with six women naval officers was captivating. Thank you for organizing such a wonderful conference.
