Panel session: How Technology is Changing the Face of FM
Technology is transforming FM delivery and, with the rapid acceleration in the implementation of new technologies taking place (estimated to reach about 21billion connected devices by 2021 (Gartner)), it means the FM delivery model and management is likely to look very different in 5-10 years’ time.
Hear from the leading minds in the FM service delivery space who are changing the nature of delivery today and researching, designing and building new technological advances for the future. This session will include presentations from these thought leaders and an in-depth panel discussion and audience Q&A.
During the panel debate, Andrew will present work undertaken by Sodexo to explore global workplace trends, in particular focused on the research surrounding ‘The New Gen of Robotics’, providing insight and opinion on how this will impact the FM industry.
“The world of work has changed. FM has a transformational opportunity to help improve the consumer experience so that people can perform at their best wherever and whenever they work. Technology is a key enabler but we must ensure that we don’t lost sight of the importance of human interaction.” – Andrew Wilkinson
