The Facilities Event will host two FM theatres to showcase engaging and educational content. The sessions at both theatres will give delegates the knowledge, tools and techniques to take back to their organisations and make an immediate impact. Delivering three keynote sessions per

day, from leading FM speakers and industry influencers, the FM Matters Theatre will open with a topic sure to generate lively debate; the future of workplace optimisation: HR & FM joining together to create a new role, which will be led by Raj Krishnamurthy, CEO and Founder of Workplace Fabric. He will cover the popular, yet widely criticised activity based-working approach and present his case for a new role, somewhere between FM and HR to oversee its implementation. Raj will be followed by C-J Green, Chief

Executive Officer UK & Ireland, Servest sharing her people-centric approach to FM. C-J will share her journey from HR manager to CEO, emphasising why there’s a place for HR at the helm of the ship; and why putting people at the heart of an FM business boosts productivity and engagement. Supporting the event’s objective to deliver

more practical training, visitors will learn from a series of industry success stories across the three days. A project team from Land Securities will share how the organisation has created a collaboration environment

suitable for global business. The team will discuss the creation of collaboration suites and a digital platform for its new London HQ building and the challenges they overcame when choosing equipment, the innovation solutions implemented in the building to make it an exemplar in collaborative environments. Following the ‘practice what you preach

mantra’, the NEC Birmingham’s very own facilities team is to host a session, shining the spotlight on FM in a 20-hall venue that plays host to over 140 conferences and exhibitions every year. The team will be joined by Jeremy Dicks from soft services partner OCS, to talk deeper about the challenges of managing this international venue. For the first time, the role of biophilic

design will be put under the spotlight at The Facilities Event, as TV presenter and sustainable architectural and interior design guru Oliver Heath discusses how we can harness the human attraction to nature to reduce stress, aid recuperation and boost productivity. On the final day of the show, Dr Paul

Wyton of Sheffield Hallam University asks “Are apprenticeships right for your busi- ness?” He will cover the purpose and ben- efits of degree apprenticeships and how FM organisations might make use of these learn- ing programmes and the apprenticeship levy. Delegates are encouraged to be part of
