Letter from the Managing Director, PMI India
Raj Kalady | Managing Director, PMI India

Dear Practitioners,

Welcome to this pre-conference special that gives you a sneak peek at our upcoming Project Management National Conference on 12 and 13 October in New Delhi. As we get ready to host the 10th edition of the national conference, we want to give you a lowdown on what you can expect on those two days.

The conference theme, India in 2022 – Leading in a Disruptive Global Market, encapsulates a thought that dominates conversations from boardrooms and customer meetings to living rooms and networking events. How do we as organizations and professionals stay relevant when there are large-scale disruptions in the market? Can we keep pace with a fast-changing technology landscape?

The conference will provide project managers the perfect platform to gain insights on current thoughts and ideas on how the country, organizations, and professionals can turn disruptive forces in their favor. We have chosen speakers from varied backgrounds to give you wellrounded perspectives on our conference theme. You can look for regular updates about speakers on our conference website.

Over these years, we have been adding new features to the national conference to give delegates a rich and memorable experience. This year too you can expect innovative delegate engagement platforms. Look out for Hunt and Shoot, in which you will have to hunt for the best answers to different project scenarios in the shortest possible time. Another new feature is Pitch Perfect in which project managers will showcase practical, innovative ideas that they have used in their projects. With these new features, break-out sessions promise to be a lot of fun.

Even as you get ready for the national conference, remember to send in your nominations for the PMI India Academic Awards 2019 by 15 October. The awards will be announced at the Research and Academic Conference next year at the Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode that will be co-hosted by the Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management, Kerala. Going back to the national conference, don’t forget to download the conference mobile app to take part in exciting contests and win goodies. I look forward to seeing you in New Delhi on 12 October.

Warm regards,

Raj Kalady
