Welcome, Principle Cleaning

9.45am Case study of the Olympic Park and its legacy: Mark Downes, former Olympic Venues Project Director and Head of Service, London Legacy Development Corporation

10.30am Occupancy density/ real estate costs in London: Central London has the most expensive real estate in Europe and therefore some of the highest occupant densities. As more organisations introduce new ways of working to sweat their assets and pack more people into smaller spaces, is there a tipping point when too many people occupy too small a space and their productivity and performance is negatively affected? Chris Moriarty, from Leesman, will examine the link between occupant density and productivity in the capital and explore what facilities managers can do to maximise the productivity of their space, whatever its size.

11.15am Coffee

11.45am Bartlett Mitchell on coffee provision within the workplace from an FM’s perspective: what to look for when providing this service and some coffee tasting, milk art.

1.45pm Monica Parker from Hatch will discuss her latest research into resiliency. In research by the CIPD, 90% of respondents felt that resiliency would be a key attribute in the workforce of the future. There is massive global instability these days. From markets to geopolitical tremors, and resiliency will be a key to building great teams.
