Professor Adam Boddison is the CEO of the Association for Project Management. He has a non-executive director portfolio that includes being Chair of the Corporation at Coventry College and a Trustee at two multi-academy trusts spanning 80 primary, secondary and specialist education settings. Adam is also a visiting professor at the University of Wolverhampton. 

Prior to joining APM, Adam held leadership roles in several membership organisations including as Chief Executive for the National Association for Special Educational Needs. He shares a fascinating story in this episode about applying for this role despite the fact that he did not meet a number of the essential criteria specified in the job ad!

This is another rich episode of the show where we discuss the importance of flexing your leadership style, building relationships across all levels inside and outside the organisation, the value in buying people lunch and much more.
