It’s time again for Project Challenge, the biannual free expo for Project Management professionals. I cannot stress enough that those who can steal a few hours out of the office, should call in and take a look at what is on offer. From seminars to demonstrations of systems all current and new within the PPM field. It is also an excellent opportunity to do a spot of networking, you don’t necessarily need to blindly approach people, you can arrange beforehand to meet those you have been talking to on social media such as twitter and LinkedIn. Make a little effort to expand your circle and you will be pleasantly surprised at how beneficial this can be moving forward. I have attended a number of the expos and still have contact with those I met over 5 years ago, I have not only found these contacts to be great for recruitment but also had a fair few contacts come to me for a CV refresh.
At the exhibition you will find many stands from software businesses, training organisations to recruitment agencies and of course you will have the opportunity to sign up for a number of presentations running throughout the day, so you may learn something too.
Here are the details:
14th October 09.30 – 17.00
15th October 09.30 – 16.15
You can pre-register online here

The bi annual Project Management event Project Challenge is back with us 15-16th October at Olympia, London.
A must for those wanting to network, learn about new tools, make contact with recruiters and learn something from the various presentations being held throughout the event.
It is a free event but you do need to register online to receive a pass into the building, if you are local to Olympia then you should pop in even if over your lunch break. Those who are currently looking for new opportunities should also put the dates in your diary so you can keep your hand into what is new in PM but also the networking is invaluable. Take a few copies of your CV and talk to recruiters, also make acquaintance with your peers – I have done this time after time and yielded some fantastic leads for future initiatives.
