|#EVA25 PLAN C
RAISING THE STANDARD OF PROJECTS FOR 25 YEARS
|Following the latest government advice on social gatherings, we have now had to re-schedule the
celebration of our 25th anniversary to the following dates:
Wednesday 16th – Thursday 17th September.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will review these dates again on Wednesday 12th August 2020.
In the meantime, keep safe.
This is your opportunity to engage with its attendees and wider supporters through this event in this special year.
|What to expect at EVA 25:|
|Last year’s event went very well. The best so far – which surprised even me.
You can expect fresh looks at old ideas and first looks at things you don’t know about.
EVA is probably the only event where difference is not an issue. Where which Body of Knowledge or method does not matter. Forcing choices which don’t always provide the best options.As ever, EVA25 will be different, entertaining and informative. Dinner will be served in the beautiful, wood panelled hall by candlelight.
|Additionally, a separate dinner will be arranged. Last year 40 very senior project controls professionals came together for a drinks reception and networking dinner which was held at the Dorchester hotel. It was a roaring success, and again a real expression of the controls community. A room full of decision makers working on the major projects of the day.
Attendees are from middle to very senior experience level, with interests in project management generally, project controls, earned value, wanting to learn more about wider issues of transformation, successful change and benefits-driven portfolios. These people realise that the world is changing rapidly and they have to change with it if they are to thrive and survive.
|The emergence and impact of practice that seeks a more reactive holistic approach is now unquestionable. That can only be gained from knowledge and above all know-how. Experience. We need thinkers and doers – But in the one person.
How do you identify and develop these people? This is a problem for those running projects as well as for those being asked to find and recruit. They are asking the wrong questions or don’t have the relevant assessment tools at their disposal.
They will also be very keen to keep Project Controls set onto a formal career path this year and are looking for like minds who will lobby for and champion this, as well as networking and business leads.
It remains clear to me that only the community itself can fix that. Expecting non-practitioners. Our elders and betters. Those in power to know the answers is wrong… They don’t.
Time to take control of our destinies our lives and of course our projects! We have already taken a great step forward with the creation of the Conversation Club: An informal group of seniors in the community supporting and leveraging the promotion of the profession and the creation of a real national practitioners standard.
Government, Defence, Aerospace, Construction, Utilities, Transport, Power Generation, Pharmaceutical and IT sectors are represented in the audience.
|Sponsors will each be allocated a clear space, power supply and either a table or stand space on the networking area where delegates gather between sessions in the pre-conference, mid-morning, lunch and afternoon breaks and during the breakout sessions.
Main and Gold sponsors may erect suitable stands. Sponsors will be able to distribute brochures to all delegates. Erection of stands will be early morning on the day of the event or previous day by arrangement.
Every sponsor’s logo will appear on all marketing and event documentation produced by the organisers.
There is also the possibility of a speaking slot in the higher levels of sponsorship.
