www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 41 JOHN YEO A respected trainer at the Australian College of Project Manage- ment, John Yeo helped foster the professional development of project managers in Australia. He was a passionate educator who would go above and beyond to support and advise his students. John moved into education following a long and successful career as a project manager. He believed there was a great need to revisit the fundamentals of project management and decided he would do something to address this need by becoming a trainer. Specialising in technical IT programs , John made every effort to stay at the forefront of this rapidly changing field of expertise. He was an advocate of continuous professional development and made a point to educate himself on new methodologies and trends in the field. John was also a champion of the AIPM and regularly attended Vic Chapter events. He promoted the AIPM at every opportunity, including handing out Project Manager magazine at his training sessions. A member of the project management profession for more than 20 years, John regularly passed on pearls of wisdom to fellow AIPM members in his informal role as Chapter councillor. “On behalf of myself and George Sloan, a longstanding member of AIPM and friend of John, we offer our condolences to his family,” said Trevor Alex , Vic Chapter President. “John will be dearly missed by his colleagues and friends.” ••• PEOPLE AIPM remembers two leading lights of the project management profession. In memoriam NEVILLE HASSEN In 1987, the ACT Chapter of the then Project Managers Forum was formed and held its first meeting at the Australian Defence Force Academy. Shortly after, Neville joined the organisation and started a life-long journey with the AIPM. Neville has been described as a leading light in project management and devoted a great deal of energy to the advancement of the profession and the development of young (and old) project managers. He earned his stripes as a project manager in Defence working on Air Force projects both in Australia and the US. A university lecturer in project management, he mentored many young professionals. He was also the Director of a longstanding consultancy company. Presenting at many AIPM and international project management conferences, Neville’s area of specialty was Performance Psychology in Project Management. He believed project managers should look beyond the technical aspects of the job and consider personal attributes that individuals bring to a project team. But no matter the topic, Neville loved a ‘meeting of the minds’ and always carried around a notepad with ideas he’d written down. He was also a devoted husband and father who nurtured the careers of his five children. His daughter Kate was seconded to the AIPM Conference Registration Desk at the 1993 National Conference in Canberra . Interestingly, Neville was instru mental in bringing the National Conference to Canberra for the first time. Describing Neville as a ‘leading light’ is ver y apt. Not only was he was one of the founding fathers of the AIPM ACT Chapter, he was also personally responsible for inspiring a number of young professionals to seek a career in project management. «NO MATTER THE TOPIC, NEVILLE LOVED A ‘MEETING OF THE MINDS’» «JOHN WILL BE DEARLY MISSED BY HIS COLLEAGUES AND FRIENDS»
