The Internet of Things is becoming part of our everyday life. We are now at a stage where anything can be fitted with a microchip sensor to collect and report data, including heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems. The possibilities for using IoT to improve your business’ efficiency and effectiveness are endless.

Karen Moule, Co-Founder, FMCentral

The programme:

6pm Registration, Networking & Refreshments.

6:30pm Penny Dablin, Senior Copywriter, Enterprise Marketing Solutions
Penny will be introducing us to the Internet of Things, explaining how it is already being used within the Facilities Management sector, and the possibilities it could hold for the future of FM.

As an experienced copywriter, Penny researches many different topics to create informative, factual and ‘selling’ content. In 2016 she thoroughly researched the Internet of Things, interviewed several leading players in the industry, and wrote a 44-page magazine similar to the Harvard Business Review for the global CEO mentoring organisation, Vistage. In our opinion, this makes Penny the best informed person we know to address the subject right now.

6:50pm Joe Miles, Managing Director, Hausmate Ltd
Joe will be explaining what an “intelligent building” looks like, why integrated devices are so important and how the Internet of Things can help with the maintenance and monitoring of buildings, all supported by practical, real-life examples.

Joe is the Managing Director of Hausmate Ltd, a building technology company specialising in commercial and domestic properties. Joe studied Environmental Engineering and subsequently became Chartered. He has 20 years’ experience running his own construction and property companies. In 2007 having scoured the market and found a suitable smart building product for a client, mid-project the company ceased trading leaving him with a partially completed building. Joe decided that there was a better way and founded Hausmate to provide a holistic, simple and cost effective alternative to traditional BMS. Hausmate has gone from strength to strength to become the premier control system for domestic and small commercial buildings.

7:05pm Ben Jackson, Chairman of Quainton Railway Society Ltd, Buckinghamshire Railway Centre
Ben will be taking us through the challenges faced running and maintaining a working steam railway, museum and the extensive grounds, and how they have overcome these challenges.

The Buckinghamshire Railway Centre in Quainton first opened in 1868 as part of the Aylesbury & Buckingham Railway. It has since been redeveloped to house around 170 items of locomotives and rolling stock plus a large selection of other objects and a member’s reference library. As a working steam railway, the centre hosts a range of special events throughout the year.

So, who is the team behind FMCentral?

The FMCentral Team - Sarah Bentley, Karen Moule, Gavin DeaneFMCentral is a partnership between Enterprise Marketing Solutions and Spaghetti Junction.

Karen Moule, Enterprise Marketing’s founder and owner, has just celebrated 10 years at the helm of her multi-award-winning strategic marketing agency, focused on the facilities management, manufacturing and education sectors. Having identified there was very little opportunity in the South Central geographic area for FM professionals to find advice, support or simply a forum to discuss issues affecting the industry, she approached Spaghetti Junction to create a partnership and fill this gap.

Sarah Bentley and Gavin Deane, co-founders of Spaghetti Junction have developed an in-depth knowledge of the skills and training landscape. As objective and independent training advisors, Spaghetti Junction help you find your way through the maze of offerings and funding options to maximise your workforce talent.

We’re also delighted to announce This Week in FM as our media partner; helping us raise our voice and champion the sector as broadly as we can.

Please engage with us; join the debates and come to our networking events, join us on LinkedIn and follow us on twitter @FMCentralUK, @spaghettijcn and @EMS_Universe.
