Our keynote speaker this year is one of Ireland's best known economic commentators; Colm McCarthy, whose career spans work with the Central Bank of Ireland, the ESRI (Economic and Social Research Institute) and DKM Economic Consultants. He currently lectures at UCD.
He is a highly respected economist with particular expertise in the energy and transport sectors. For over twenty years he has been a consistent panellist on national television and radio where his ability to reduce economic data to terms easily understood in layman's language has won him many admirers.
These awards recognise and honour the hard work and high standards required to obtain the Diploma in Applied Project Management (Dip. APM), and the associated international IPMA certification.
