21. BIFM manifesto for change pt.1 | Steve Roots, Linda Hausmanis, Chris Moriarty & Simon Iatrou
The first of two special episodes where Ian hands over the interview reins to Simon Iatrou of Magenta Associates, to explore the British Institute of Facilities Management’s intentions to change their name to embrace workplace, and seek chartered status.
Simon is joined by key members of the BIFM leadership team: Chairman Steve Roots, CEO Linda Hausmanis, and Director of Insight Chris Moriarty. Ian also joins the discussion as 3edges Director and workplace insight specialist.
This is essential listening if you have an interest in the future of FM, the workplace discipline, the role of professional bodies… and especially if you are a voting BIFM member - enjoy!
Thanks to everyone who submitted questions for discussion, and has contributed constructively to the debate so far...
