All are currently part of the Project Control Foundation Scheme (PCFS) and gave ten minute talks on the research they have been doing on their final year dissertations.
Emma Waterhouse said: “We were asked plenty of questions and insightful discussions were raised at the end of each presentation by the attendees. This will help us further strengthen our projects as the hand-in date approaches! It was a great opportunity not only to gain experience of presenting externally, but also to receive such positive feedback from those whom we presented to.”

- Jenna Cooke: A Grounded Theory approach to investigating the role of Relationships and Processes within Project Management
- Lucy Walton: Sustaining Effective Teams throughout the Project Lifecycle
- Emma Waterhouse: The Value of Academic Qualifications in Building a Project Management Career
- Grant Gallacher: Does Earned Value Management Add Value to Project Management?
