MK Dons Robes for New Networking Forum

21 October 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

Facilities Management professionals will have a new dedicated forum from Wednesday 9th November - FM Central, has been created to promote innovation, share ideas and address issues that affect the industry.

FM Central’s first meeting will be held at the University of Buckingham, Yeomanry House Reception, Hunter St, Buckingham MK18 1EG between 6pm and 8pm.

Originators and partners in this joint initiative are Spaghetti Junction founders, Sarah Bentley and Gavin Deane and Enterprise Marketing Solutions’ Managing Director, Karen Moule (pictured centre).

“Opportunities for the FM sector to network are well catered for in London and Manchester but there was nothing much in between” explained Bentley, former CEO of The Building Futures Group and CEO of Asset Skills. “We aim to fill that gap. FM Central is a place where FM professionals can meet to discuss relevant topics affecting the FM industry”.

Moule added, “The meetings will have two or three speakers who will address subjects of interest to FM professionals. At the first meeting the founders will be talking about FM coverage and support and plans for the future of FM Central. We will also be hearing from the Facilities Manager of the University on the particular FM challenges he faces for a diverse and extensive campus.”

There is no charge to attend. To find out more and to book your free place at the first meeting, email or Click Here to book your place
