ICCPM and the John Grill Centre for Project Leadership at The University of Sydney are pleased to announce their partnership, with the John Grill Centre joining as Series Partner for ICCPM’s 2018 International Roundtable Series.

The 2018 International Roundtable Series conversation will challenge and seek to change leadership mindsets and practices in organisations to achieve successful planning and delivery of large scale complex projects.

As Series Partner, the John Grill Centre will play an important role in supporting ICCPM host the launch of the series in Sydney and accessing industry experts and world-renowned academics to facilitate discussion on the day.  Acting CEO of ICCPM Collin Smith said, “The goals and collaborative model of the John Grill Centre perfectly align with the theme and nature of the 2018 roundtable series.  This partnership will provide a valuable enhancement to the discussion on leadership in complex projects.   We are very fortunate to have the Centre partner with us on this initiative.”

The Roundtable Series brings together high level delegates from a range of industries including public and private organisations and ICCPM Fellows and members.  Approximately 200-400 attendees are expected across the various locations.  This year, ICCPM plans to extend the reach of the Series to include input from delegates around Europe, Asia and South Africa as well as re-visiting past locations including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand.

Suresh Cuganesan, Chief Executive Officer, John Grill Centre said, “We are delighted to partner with ICCPM on this series to  engage in much needed discussion on the key leadership that is required if large complex projects are to deliver on their business case and create their envisioned economic and social impacts. Importantly, we cannot stop at talk but need to also look at how we identify the right issues and take action to address these to achieve better leadership.”

The principle outcome of the roundtable series is to produce a white paper report that adds to the thought leadership body of knowledge focusing on providing a clear definition for what Leadership for Success in complex projects means and recommendations of further action that may be required.

The John Grill Centre for Project Leadership helps to lead projects that impact economic value and social well-being by working in partnership with organisations to change leadership mindsets and practices. The centre addresses real-world challenges through leadership development, executive education programs and high impact research.
