Programme

Navigating turbulent times

The 2010’s decade, will be looked back on as among the most turbulent in the modern age. Politically, economically, socially and technologically, times and trends are changing at a quickening rate.  

There is a sense that this rapid change is the new norm; traditional lines are blurred as once distinct spheres overlap and integrate. As professionals we must sharpen our resilience and be leaders of change within our organisations.  

A number of the so-called megatrends impacting society have a direct and demonstrable impact on the activities we workplace and facilities managers do every day. So how do we respond to these challenges? 

The IWFM 2020 National Conference will explore these themes with leading thinkers from diverse backgrounds. These are people whose work is directly addressing today’s challenges; they can provide us with the insights and inspiration not only to survive in turbulent times, but to thrive as our emerging discipline steps up to the plate.
