The focus of the evening is to explore how mature project management strategies can improve the efficiency of project outcomes.

 

The Power of Student-Led Social Enterprise

The Edinburgh Enactus team is a student society of 83 members; they run eight life changing social enterprises locally and internationally, to meet the needs of communities with entrepreneurial spirit and innovations developed at the University of Edinburgh.

This year our team was recognised as the UK’s leading Enactus team against 59 other Universities, meaning we have been given the opportunity to represent the UK at the Enactus World Cup - the world's biggest social entrepreneurship competition.

 

Grown Up Project Management - Why is it so difficult?

Harley Lovegrove is a serial entrepreneur who set up his first business at the age of 21. He is the author of four books (Making a Difference, Inspirational Leadership, Transition, The Change Manager's Handbook).

Harley's career has lead him to work in a wide variety of businesses; today, he is the Chairman of The Bayard Partnership, a group practice of freelance professionals that includes a large percentage of Project Management professionals and Change Managers.

Harley's hobbies include co-running the charity Young Belgian Talent, an organization for exceptionally talented young classical musicians, long distance motoring holidays in a vintage MG and the co running of a high end loudspeaker manufacturing company Pearl Acoustics Ltd.
