June 13, 2010 - PRLog -- Dallas, Texas, USA — PMForum has announced that PMForum’s Managing Editor David Pells delivered the second keynote address to open the Greek Project Management Association’s 5th Scientific Conference on Project Management (SCPM), also known as PM05, on Saturday 29 May 2010.  The PM05 conference was held during 29-31 May at the Mövenpick Resort and Thalasso Hotel near the Greek city of Heraklion, on the Mediterranean island of Crete.

David Pells’ presentation, entitled “PMForum – the Untold Story!”, followed the opening keynote speech at the conference by Brigitte Schaden, president of the International Project Management Association (IPMA).  Ms. Schaden’s presentation on the topic of “IPMA … Moving Forward” included an overview of current and new developments underway within IPMA.  Pells’ presentation was a rare opportunity for PMForum to share the stage with leaders of one of the world’s largest project management professional associations – IPMA is a federation of over 50 national project management member associations.

According to David, “The conference in Crete was a unique opportunity to showcase PMForum’s support to the project management profession.  We are now a global resource for project management news and information.  But we are also a service to professional organizations and leaders who want more exposure for their activities and programs.  We support IPMA, PM Greece, PMI and other professional associations worldwide in various ways.”

“But the project management world is changing rapidly now,” Pells continued.  “Just as modern project management is evolving with new models to fit new project conditions and characteristics, PMForum is also evolving.  We want to provide more project management intelligence, not just information.  And we plan to support continuous learning; this is a key message.  Project managers must learn from others now and throughout their careers.  It is no longer possible to learn everything about projects or project management from direct experience.”

According to the abstract of Pells’ presentation: “With global networks of academic and professional advisors, international correspondents, authors, ambassadors and readers, PMForum is now one of the most influential online organizations in the PM world.  Paralleling the growth and globalization of the project management profession itself, the PMForum story includes expanding professional relationships and networks, creation and exchanges of ideas, recognition and sharing of  knowledge and intelligence, and monitoring of trends and developments.  PMForum bridges the professional worlds of AIPM, APM, IPMA, PMAJ, PMI, SOVNET and other professional bodies, providing a global perspective on the state of the project management profession, current trends and the future.  PMForum’s mission remains ‘connecting the world of project management’.  This presentation tells the story and reveals how that is possible.”  To see David’s PowerPoint presentation from Greece, visit
