Address your FM leadership challenges at ThinkFM

Facilities management professionals can now secure their delegate places at ThinkFM 2013, the facilities management conference brought to you by the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) in association with Workplace Law.

ThinkFM 2013 will focus on ‘The leadership challenge: raising our game, making our case - realising our value’ when it returns to the Royal College of Physicians in London on Monday 10 June 2013.

Addressing leadership within FM from all angles, the conference offers educational and debate sessions that will help facilities management professionals advance their skills and thinking within their roles, their teams, their business, and in how they lead and manage their facilities effectively.

With over 300 delegates expected from across the FM profession, ThinkFM offers delegates the ability to select which sessions they wish to attend from the sessions running concurrently throughout the day, leaving the opportunity to focus on areas of personal interest or challenge thinking within a new topic.

Stephen Bennett, strategy director at BIFM, said: “ThinkFM is a flagship conference in the UK facilities management calendar and it has been pleasing to see it grow in 2012 from its inception in 2011. This year looks set to be the biggest ThinkFM to date, where we are looking to inspire leadership action through topics from attitude to competences, from corporate social responsibility to the FM difference, from the triple bottom line to the c-suite vocabulary. What differentiates ThinkFM is our hub format - enabling us to address so many critical issues in one day. As we work to refine the programme, we welcome input from FM professionals, to ensure we address the core leadership issues they face.”
