Maxwell Stephens to Attend ThinkFM

ThinkFM conference logo

Maxwell Stephens are looking forward to attending ThinkFM next week, which is an annual conference from the British Institute of Facilities Management.

On the 18th May, our Managing Director, Peter Forshaw will head to Milton Court Concert Hall at the Barbican in London, which was part of a £90 million development for the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. It is here that ThinkFM, sponsored by Sodexo, will be tackling the topic of productivity, exploring facilities management and the workplace’s role in enabling organisational productivity.

The British Institute of Facilities Management was set up to promote debate and future thinking to focus the FM profession on how it needs to evolve to deliver benefits to business, the economy and wider society. Because of this, it is a key conference for us every year, and we enjoy attending to see how the marketplace is evolving and use the information to bolster our own efforts within the sector.

The key points of the conference will be the debate on how organisational performance comes from the maximisation and alignment of all resources and systems towards the organisational goals and shared cultural commitment. Key speakers will discuss how facilities and workplace management is part of that and a fundamental facet in enabling business performance.

Key speakers of the day include Marc Priestley, Formula One and Formula E broadcaster and writer, who will talk about marginal gains; Eugenie Proto, an Associate Professor at the University of Warwick Happier Firms, who will chat through happiness and productivity; Dr Jill Miller, Research Advisor at CIPD, who will deliver a session on setting an agenda for wellbeing; and Bridget Hardy, Director at Integrans Consulting, who will speak about FM’s role in organisational success; as well as many others across the entire day.

Focussing on strategy and taking a glance into the future, the day will focus heavily on how harnessing the expertise of facilities management can enhance business, which we believe we can share a wealth of knowledge on. If you’re attending the conference also, don’t forget to say hello.
