The Facilities Event team are now inviting proposals for seminar sessions for the 2018 edition of the show.
Under the theme Challenge, change and collaborate, the event’s two FM theatres will showcase engaging and educational content. The FM Matters theatre will include keynote presentations while the FM Dialogue area promises a series of panel debates where delegates can discuss the issues of the day with their peers and experts.
The sessions at both theatres will explore the productivity puzzle, and how FM may be the key to boosting the bottom line. They will give delegates the knowledge, tools and techniques to take back to their organisations and make an immediate impact.
Anyone wishing to put forward a proposal should send a brief synopsis, together with details of the speaker and their conference speaking experience, to Cathy Hayward at email@example.com by 29 September 2017.
All professional conference content at The Facilities Event 2017 will be CPD accredited.
3 keynotes per day, 45 mins including Q&A: high quality line-up
|F1A||10:15 - 11:15|| How collaboration brings value by aligning FM services to an organisation’s strategic goals
Why is collaboration as a business behaviour gaining momentum in both the public and private sectors in the UK and beyond?
With BS11000 set to become the ISO standard at the beginning of 2017, increased focus on this area is being driven both by Government and private best practice. But how do we define "collaboration" and do we have to have a standard to implement a more collaborative approach in the workplace?
FMP360 Managing Director Anne Lennox-Martin talks about a more pragmatic view to the subject which focuses on alignment with corporate goals and achieving continuous improvements to demonstrate tangible benefits and real value.

|F1B||12:15 - 13:15|| Adding value through transforming culture in FM
NHS Grampian delivers healthcare services to a population of over 584,000. The Facilities and Estates Directorate faces a dilemma from ongoing financial austerity measures. How could it consistently deliver high quality FM services to an extensive property portfolio, with finite resources, while also continuing to meet the demands of third party GP Practices, which relies on their services?
Preston Gan, Head of Quality and Performance at NHS Grampian’s Facilities and Estates Directorate, was faced with risking NHS Grampian’s reputation by putting the Board’s owned properties at the top of the agenda and severing the long-standing relationships with GP Practices, or find a way to add value to the organisation.
Preston shares his experiences of transforming existing practices, culture and behaviours to empower people and enhance productivity; by developing and delivering a client focused FM service. As a result, successfully enhanced the relationship, turned FM into a valuable service for the GP Practices and gained a revenue stream for the NHS.
