Day 1: Opening Power Thought Session

The Future of FM Leadership: How Much Change Are You Prepared to Embrace?

Facilitator and Speaker: Steven Sonsino

The global FM community is expanding and growing faster than any other time in history. The geographic barriers are down as FM companies emerge into the fast‐growing markets of South America, the Middle and Far East, India and China.

As a community of FMs, we need to ask ourselves the following questions:

  • What is FM in this brave new world?
  • Where do our services take place?
  • And how will we deliver FM?

In this challenging and provocative session, Professor Steven Sonsino will help you discover how to constantly reinvent FM so that the profession continues to remain relevant.

Sonsino is a best-selling author, a visiting professor at business schools all over the world and a motivational leadership speaker for chambers of commerce, charities and hundreds of global corporations.
