  • Publicity and coverage of the event possibly by PMI Singapore Chapter Newsletters, local media, social media and/or PMI Global Newsletter;
  • Opportunity for your nominated project to attempt at the Global PMI Project Excellence Award (if desired);
  • Contribution to advancing the Project Management profession in Singapore;
  • Broad networking chances with C-level Executives;
  • Looks good on your resume! Take your career to the next level;
