Academy of Certified Professional Managers hosts a dinner party to celebrate its 10th anniversary

Leadership Academy of Certified Professional Managers hosts a dinner party to celebrate its...

The Academy of Certified Professional Managers (ACPM), created by the PMF community, has celebrated its tenth anniversary. It was started by a group of business owners and top managers who emerged after the 2008 crisis voicing strong disapproval of the government and the managers of the financial sector. 

Within ten years, it has developed into a full blown academy – a professional community which has taken control of the high standards expected in managers’ expertise. ACPM celebrated its first decade on June 25th with a dinner party. The mood was festive but at the same time productively businesslike. Academy members congratulated each other on their achievements  and made short presentations on future prospects and developments. 

In his welcoming speech to members, ACPM Director Richard Oliphant said: “Our academy cannot claim to have a century of experience, like many other respected professional communities. But being young is not a barrier – it’s an advantage and often expressed in quick decision-making processes, ambition, looking at  old issues with fresh eyes and similarly adopting new methods of solving them. To gleen the best from the experience of our senior fellow organizations as well as utilising modern tools to influence key business professionals.”

During the evening members of the Academy and its business partners discussed the following issues: 

  • how well the community and the academy has developed in the past ten years
  • goals and objectives for the future 
  • requirements for the standardization of management skills

 It was concluded that the Academy needs to focus its efforts on the professional development of managers, as well as to establish links with foreign partners to achieve common goals, which were identified as follows:

  • promotion of professional management in private non-public companies
  • development and transformation of companies at a more advanced level through digitalization
  • to provide a pool of relevant knowledge and skills in finance, management, use of fintech tools, and implementation of digital innovations for specialists that are open for personal development
  • to train managers in compiling professional experience with digital opportunities.
  • to prepare specialists to acquire multi-level skills to be able to strengthen their career positions.

It was also decided that in 2020-2021, ACPM will announce accreditation options for educational companies and training centres aimed at mutually strengthening existing brands and promote the ideas and programmes of the Academy.
