BIFM London conference reveals programme

Tickets are now available for the British Institute of Facilities Management London annual conference, which takes place on 16 March at King's Place in London.

Mark Downes, former Olympic venues project director and head of service at the London Legacy Development Corporation, will kick off the London-themed event with a presentation looking at the legacy of the Olympic Park. Chris Moriarty, development director at the Leesman Index, will follow, discussing occupancy density in the capital and whether there is a tipping point when too many people occupy too small a space and their performance is negatively affected.

Other speakers include: Peter McLennan, MSc course director in facility and environment management at the Bartlett School of Graduate Studies, UCL, who will discuss the impact of tuition fees on FM qualifications and trends in career progression in FM; Monica Parker from Hatch who will reveal her latest workplace research; and Bartlett Mitchell on what to look for when providing coffee in the workplace, including a hands-on coffee tasting and milk art session.

Mike Lynch, commander, indigenous covert operations forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, will close the day by revealing his experience in 'behind the lines' covert target development, having served the longest operational tour in Afghanistan in the history of the modern day British Army.

Tickets cost £103 for BIFM members and £153 for non-members.
