Conference organiser, Lindsay Scott talks about the return of the PMO Conference for a second year:
"The first PMO Conference was a sell out success and it's back this year because there are still so many challenges and opportunities for PMOs within organisations today. The people who run and manage these functions - PMO Managers and their teams - have been crying out for an event that enables them to take a It’s an opportunity for practitioners to take a step back for the day, gain some new insights and perspectives and then re-enter their organisation with a refound energy and a fresh pair of eyes. All the sessions are PMO focused - not project management or programme management, but PMO. It's a conference for the often forgotten practitioners who have an incredibly tough job."
