Driving the change together, Project Managers are Change Makers and create the future now.

We believe we can recover Portugal and contribute to build a sustainable future.

To do so, it is critical we take responsibility about the need to build the future now.

The conference was designed with project leaders, change managers, project team members in mind focused on the opportunity to create a safe space to share, reflect, thought provoke and inspire.

We intend to leverage on a diverse range of perspectives to generate possibilities, synergies, ideas, and multidisciplinary collaboration opportunities.

The aim is to enrich the debate valuing different points of you and contributing to break silos, cultivate resilience, creating space to project the future of Portugal, transforming challenges into opportunities, and unlocking the potential of are valuable resources.

We are committed to sow the seeds to cocreate a sustainable future, where all people, processes and tools are integrated and where change is a constant we learned to deal with proactively.
