I N T E R N AT I O N A L PROJECT MANAGEMENT COMPANY OF THE YEAR, GPM GLOBAL GAMECHANGER OF THE YEAR, DR. JOEL B. CARBONI, GPM GLOBAL

Since 2009, we at GPM Global has been working with private, public, and academic organizations around the world to improve their awareness, acceptance, adoption, and integration of sustainable change. It is often said that incremental change rarely makes headlines. For us to be awarded is a great honor and underscores the tireless effort we make to advance sustainable development. It is no secret that there are new challenges in the United states that will make the work we do a bit harder. This award will help us to break down barriers and introduce new concepts that help companies maximise profitability while being good stewards of our natural resources and society. As the founder, our award is special. We have dedicated our efforts to make the world a better place and each training course that is run with our mark represents advancement in that direction. Being awarded for this effort we feel is reason to work even harder. 2016 was a watershed year for us. We launched the 'ONE Approach' in support of the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We also updated the P5 Standard for sustainability in project management to incorporate the SDGs which has been downloaded by over 20,000 individuals from 145 countries. We have impacted organizations and governments across all corners of the globe, including in South Africa, Latvia, Switzerland, Russia, France and Australia, to name a few. Our training expanded to 145 countries with several fortune 500 companies having adopted our approach and we welcomed three new Universities as part of our ‘Responsible Management Education’ partner program including Peking University in Beijing, Skema Business School in France, and South Ural State and Omsk State Universities in Russia who are all teaching our programs.

Unlike many who work in the project realm, we place an emphasis on what drives business and what the market trends are and what is motivating them socially and politically so that when we work with an organization or develop training, it is relevant to today’s needs and their business. Our team, is a diverse group of subject matter experts. We rely on each other for insight, expertise and also motivation. With an executive and management team that reaches the United States, Canada, China, Australia, Portugal, Argentina, and Russia, we view our diversity as our number one asset. We are concerned that the challenges presented by increased nationalism might negatively impact global objectives, not just for our organization, but for for the 2030 agenda for sustainable development and the Paris Agreement on Climate change. We hope to build bridges between countries and place education and training at the forefront.
