A compelling dynamic
In January, I took part in a podcast called Talking Talent, which is due to be released later this month.
Keep an eye (and ear) out for it on IWFM’s social media channels because we covered a range of engrossing topics surrounding workplace and facilities management. Among them were the biggest challenges facing the industry (and businesses as a whole), the Apprenticeship Levy, sustainability and how our profession can help nurture the next generations of workplace and facilities practitioners by engaging students in schools.
We ended with a quick-fire round of questions, one of which was about my top three fantasy dinner guests. I opted for Jesus Christ, Stephen Fry and Billy Connolly – quite a compelling dynamic of personalities and attributes, if I say so myself! At the least, we would not be found wanting for wine, bread and fish.
Contemplating that question naturally leads my thoughts to the incredible speakers we’ve secured for IWFM Conference 2020. Any combination of them would make for an excellent dinner party or, in this case, an enthralling event.
As you may have heard by now, our theme this year is ‘navigating turbulent times’ and there is certainly much for our speakers – and all of us – to contemplate, given that the uncertainty and disruption of 2019 has forgotten its place and thoughtlessly wandered into 2020.
You can find out more about the speakers and the programme elsewhere in this issue. I hope to see many of you there on the day.
