Feedback from the last three symposiums is consistent.

Our audience wants to hear real world stories from the people who are doing what they do.

Shared experiences from real world activities are important to our development as project professionals. Whether around the bar, over lunch or in the corridor, everything from anecdotes to detailed analytical dissections help us learn the art of being a project professional.

So, we need you to think about what you could share - what you do, or what works (or not), what challenges you or your project have and how you deal with it, or some observations or reflections.

Practical presentations are 45 minutes and you don't have to be the CEO, the Project Director or the Chief Scheduler. You might present to a specialist stream, or you might be identified to present for all of the symposium audience.

Submit your presentation proposal (an outline of about 150 words including how long you want to speak) and let's see where it goes from there.

There are lots of other reasons you might want to present:


The academic stream within PGCS is an important component of our overall program run by academics, for academics interested in advancing the practice of project, program and portfolio management in our region.

Symposium presentations only need to be PowerPoint, but written papers are encouraged and will be published in the PGCS Library. If you have a great presentation from elsewhere you would like to share with our audience this is OK but we do need to know.

Click the below link to submit an abstract and be considered to present at the symposium, to be held at the Canberra Rex Hotel from 22-24 August 2023.
