“This is the first event of its kind to be totally focused on project management. This is an opportunity that cannot be missed by anyone involved in such a fundamental role for our industry.

Project Managers are the engine that runs production departments and no agency can work without them. They are constantly under pressure and expected to perform at the highest standards in many areas such as (constant) price negotiations, meeting (impossible) deadlines, be the expert on (all) the tools available in the market and know how to deal with all stakeholders and often in the most difficult circumstances. This event is giving them a voice and a spotlight where they can meet their peers face-to-face, ask questions and most of all learn from each other. Communication will be the key word of this event!”

“I feel that the constantly and rapidly developing arena of language technology options also has a great impact on the day-to-day operations of Project Managers. Their work is becoming more and more a mixture of organization, linguistics and IT, bringing new challenges and for some maybe requiring a different skill set. I feel privileged to be able to contribute to this Elia event and advise current and future PMs on how to deal with these challenges in their daily work.”
