At the end of the Global Young Crew Workshop in Crete, during the IPMA Young Crew gala dinner, Subas Subedi, from Nepal (see pman.org.np), was announced as the winner of the Young Project Manager Award – 2012. Later he gained even Project Prize for IPMA Project Excellence Award.
From Subas’s Award Interview:
Subas Subedi has recently released an interview for Young Crew newsletter about his experience with the Award, here some extracts:
“I took a Master’s degree in Rural Development (2007), and in June 2008 I joined Underprivileged Children’s Educational Programs (UCEP) Nepal where I met Mr Suraj Dahal, – the founder of Project Management Association of Nepal. He’s been encouraging me in this direction since then.”
“These honours are very important for me personally and professionally as well as to the branding of my organization, to which I feel in debt. Also, myself coming from a country like Nepal, I hope this will motivate other young professional to compete and win at an international level. Read the full Interview.
