I'm Tony Hall and I've been in Project Management, predominately in construction, for about 35 years. Originally I trained as Civil Engineer with Taylor Woodrow Construction, a very large construction company but soon transferred to their brand-new Project Management company Cementation Projects and hence into the world of project Management . Over the interim years I have had a hand in Managing some large a complex projects and some very small ones that were equally important to the Client and end users. I have a particular interest in the technically difficult and scientific projects
I have been a member of the Association for Project Management for many years
About 15 years ago I was invited to become a visiting lecturer in Project Management at University College London making me, I suppose, a visiting Fellow and it has been a very satisfying way to pass on what experience that I've gained in my career.
Most interestingly I have become to think the these annual exchanges with the UCL students broadens my perspective immensely and ensures that I never stop learning about this fascinating subject.
