Breakfast Briefing: How to Build a Career in International Workplace Management
Monday, 12 November, 2018 @ 08:30 - 10:30 UTC
Hosted by IFMA and RICS
Industry leaders, the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) will kick-start Workplace Week London 2018 with a dedicated breakfast session that will take a close look at how FM’s can develop and adapt their skills in line with a rapidly developing industry, to build a successful career in workplace management.
Did you know?
An estimated 25 million people around the globe work in facilities management, and 70% of them are over the age of 47. The industry sports an ageing workforce and in the next few years, half of the FMs around the world will be retiring. So, when those 17.5 million professionals step aside, who will fill their shoes? And what skills will the future FM need in line with the changing world of work?
Nobody can deny that FM is advancing in a new direction and becoming increasingly complex as it does so. In order to keep up, FM’s must adapt and evolve their role or risk being left behind.
Sean Tompkins, CEO, RICS, believes that only by uniting the global FM community and by sharing guidance from professional, world-leading experts can we define the future of the profession.
Promising a jam-packed morning of tantalizing discussion and debate, a panel of experts will share their stories and advice to those who don’t want their careers to be confined by borders – geographical, digital, or otherwise.
