The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) has recently launched a series of educational roadshows for cleaning professionals and businesses, which are touring the UK throughout 2016. The inaugural roadshow took place in May at Sealed Air Diversey Care in Northampton. This was followed in June by the second event which took place in Canary Wharf, London at KPMG's headquarters. Both events were a success and received positive feedback. David Hughes, who attended the Northampton roadshow, said: “My colleague and I thoroughly enjoyed the day, especially the 'Who's hitching a free ride?' presentation delivered by Ken Hallett. It was very relevant to our workplace and we have already put many of the learnings in to action.”
The roadshows are a good opportunity for BICSc members and industry professionals to learn more about the cleaning industry from key speakers as well as share inspiration from peers over a networking lunch.
Joanna Begg, customer support manager at BICSc, organiser of the events, said: “We wanted all of our attendees to feel inspired and to be able to take away some actionable insights that they could use to support their own business or career, and judging by the feedback we have received so far we feel this was certainly achieved. We are very excited for our next few roadshows and hope to see many more of our BICSc members and training centres there.”
The latest roadshow took place in Belfast in July. This was the first time BICSc has travelled to Ireland as a team.
The roadshows are free to attend for all BICSc members, and £15 for non-members. They feature industry expert speakers from KPMG small business accounting, BICSc, Environmental Excellence Education, and Citation. Upcoming roadshow dates:
• 24 August: Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester.
• 5 October: University of the West of Scotland, Paisley.
• 3 November: Tortworth Court Hotel, near Bristol.
