The future for FM including catering and cleaning looks bright. Universal Infant Free School Meals is providing a welcome boost too catering services and cleaning and other buildings related services have considerably improved their offering over the last few years.
Service heads have demonstrated remarkable energy and tenacity in making their services efficient and cost effective, able to compete and win new business in existing and new markets. It’s now time to ensure that local authority services are setting the pace in catering, cleaning and FM services, providing high quality services to existing and new customers whilst retaining the wider community service ethic of the Ensuring Council.
Local Government finance however still looks grim. Predictions are for further budget reductions, reorganisation in Northern Ireland and Wales whilst devolution of powers surges ahead in Scotland and England post referendum. Those delivering FM services must continue to adapt and innovate.
This seminar brings together speakers from facilities management, catering and cleaning and the organisations that impact on them to chart the future and highlight some of the many challenges facing service providers. The 2 days are crafted to give delegates the opportunity to refresh their knowledge, learn new skills and give practical advice on implementing some exciting new ideas back in the workplace.
