It’s all in the Genes

What makes for a successful FM and if it could be something that has the answer in ourselves?

The British Institute of Facilities Management has organised an event where the winner of this year’s BIFM Award for FM of the Year, Chris Newton, may be able to provide the answer. 

The second year of this event is taking place at The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists near Regents Park, London, the natural setting to consider what makes up the DNA of a Successful Facilities Manager. 

There will also be a ‘lively’ interactive panel discussion where the audience have chance to put questions and rub shoulders with some of the past winners of the BIFM of the Year Award over drinks and light refreshments.



17:30: Arrival & Networking.

18:00: FMDNA Event. 

20:00: Refreshments and Networking.

21:00: Close.


Availability is limited to 80 people. The DNA of a Successful Facilities Manager event is run by the BIFM People Management Special Interest Group, and sponsored by Graysons Restaurants and BTFS.
