|NEW Transatlantic Series|
|To continue in the efforts of bringing the professional community together, we will now go further afield and start a new transatlantic series as a joint effort between the College of Performance Management (CPM) in the US and EVA in the UK.
This new series titled “Building Bridges not Walls” will start on Thursday 27th May and will be based on the same format as our previous online events, with the aim of sharing ideas through conversation in a community unfettered by normal affiliations and restrictions. Steve Wake and Gordon Kranz CPM President will discuss EVM joined by Tim Sheldon Head of the UK Submarine Agency.
Regular broadcasts every Thursday. Guests who are senior, diverse, open, interested, passionate, different, motivating, inspiring, and reassuring. A growing network to change for the better. Discussion with interest for both sides of the pond.
|Given the ongoing restrictions on social gatherings and in true agile practice, we have now remade and remodelled our 25th edition of EVA.|
|How much? £250 including early Christmas Thanksgiving dinner, if you want to and can be there.
We will follow-up individually to confirm you can really make it. Currently it can be offered to the first 70 subscribers.EVA is the UK Earned Value and Project Controls event that has promoted and championed improved practice for 25 years. Currently Steve is working on the ISO EVM Implementation Guide and leading a new British Standard for Project Controls.

Conversation Club & Networking Dinner
|A safe networking drinks and dinner is being organised at the Armourers’ Hall for subscribers who can get there.
There will be an opportunity for short spoken presentations, and of course much table discussion.
We have full access and exclusive use, so can control getting in and out and walkways with a staff team who have known us for years and a catering brigade cooking in the large kitchen.
Tables are likely to be distributed around the rooms of the building for distance and for “hearability”.
The inherent risk is the hall is closed; in which case a new date will be set in line with the circumstances of the time.
Remember the dinner is the star on the top of the advent calendar, so it is included in the subscription. Current thinking is 100 people max.Timings: Opening at 1600 | Dining at 1830 | Closing at 2100
|It will be possible:
|The Way Ahead|
|The 25 conversations will lead to EVA25 Groundhog Day May 13, 2021. Currently a full F2F gathering.
The intention is to carry on with the broadcast conversations permanently supported by subscription with quarterly physical events. Each physical event will be a Conversation Club. The Spring /Summer event will be a symposium. In this way more shape and form will be given to the Conversation Club whilst EVA may fade into a fond memory.
|The people originally invited to EVA25 are being contacted with an invitation to reshape and remodel to the broadcast 25-minute format.
So, expect many of this initial subscription series to become a face on the advent calendar.
