This year of 2016 into 2017 is proving to be busy and diverse – professionally and personally.

We continue to be involved with advising, consulting, representing, speaking, lecturing, training, writing, publishing and travelling.

The end of a three year Presidency of Association for Project Management (APM) in 2015 has changed some commitments; however matters and involvements continue to tick over.

Visits with interesting speaking and hosting opportunities continue to arise from contacts and connections – and are always welcome. Recent or imminent events include in Zurich, Switzerland, Riga, Latvia, Cartagena, Spain, Reykjavik, Iceland, Reading and London in UK.

The receipt of a rare Honorary Fellowship from IPMA and the first non-Spanish Honorary Membership of AIEPRO have been particular highlights.

Full day courses attendances have been steady; with bookings for months to come. Additional modules are being provided for Architects as Project Leaders.

Regular academic lectures on project management themes continue in UK.

Consultancy and advisory services on business / practice / studio themes continue with about half a dozen talented organisations at the last count.

dashdot Publications continue to flourish with twelve completed titles – and others in development.

So overall a continuing, interesting variety is being sustained – with people, places, projects – with some project management.
