Gordon Mitchell Key FM CIO spent a valuable two days chatting with industry peers and forward-thinking suppliers at this years’ FM show in London. If you were not able to attend here is the Key FM round up of the highlights.
Smart Buildings Expo
The Smart Buildings Expo was an inspired idea to bring multiple suppliers together in one space to experience the benefits of their technology in a physical office environment. The 196m2 interactive smart office built on the show floor also benefited from a 1-2-1 impartial consultation service and the Workplace Technology Theatre which boasted a rich line up of seminars. This included Gordon’s session on Blending Standards and Industrial Revolution 4.0 where he spoke on behalf of the ISO TC 267 Facility Management Advisory Group 1 in his role as chair of the Facilities Management Technology Task Group (FMTTG).

IWFM Meeting of minds
The IWFM is our leading professional body with a community of over 17,000 workplace and facilities management professionals. Through sharing best practice and knowledge with the profession and supporting professional development through internationally recognised qualifications and training, they ensure professional standards underpin the quality of services offered by facilities management professionals.
Key FM has a long-standing close relationship with the IWFM from its origins as BIFM to our pivotal role in shaping ISO standards for the FM industry.
Gordon met with Senior Strategic Development Manager, Neil Everitt to discuss the IWFM vision for Professional Development and how it is shaping our industry.
Key FM has long been an advocate of wrapping workforce wellbeing into the solutions we suggest to our clients. As such we found the chance to hear from other champions of this cause in the Workplace Wellbeing Theatre, through the Wellness Wall by IWFM and sample options from the healthy eating café a great addition to the show this year. Subjects covered in seminars were varied including ‘Mental Health and the Law’, ‘The Wellbeing Professional of the Future’, ‘Tackling Fatigue in Your Organisation’ and ‘Nutrition as Part of a Health and Wellbeing Offer.’
