Two inspirational speakers will open and close IFMA’s flagship annual event, the World Workplace Conference and Expo held in Denver, Colorado, October 7-9, 2015.
This year marks IFMA’s 35th year of supporting and advancing the facility management (FM) profession. One way IFMA has accomplished this has been by inspiring FM professionals to “Collaborate to Innovate,” — the theme of this year’s conference.
Opening Keynote: Josh Linkner
The opening keynote address will be presented by Josh Linkner, a tech entrepreneur and investor, best-selling author, and weekly contributor to Inc. Magazine, Forbes, and the Detroit Free Press. Linkner’s keynote, “Harnessing Innovation: Turning Raw Ideas Into Powerful Results,” offers practical advice for FM professionals to immediately increase creative output and deliver bottom-line results. Linkner will be available on the expo floor to sign his latest book, “The Road to Reinvention: How to Drive Disruption and Accelerate Transformation,” immediately following his address.
Closing Keynote: Neil Pasricha
New York Times bestselling author Neil Pasricha will present the closing keynote address, “The 3 A’s of Awesome: How to Be Awesome at Work!” Pasricha is a self-made happiness expert and author of the international bestseller, “The Book of Awesome,” who will challenge attendees to raise expectations of themselves and commit to the habit of happiness every day. He will be available to sign his books immediately following his address.
In addition to the keynote addresses, participants at World Workplace will enjoy appearances from Denver Bronco cheerleaders and drumliners, the Denver Big Blue Bear, and the legendary country music band Sawyer Brown.
For more than 30 years, IFMA’s World Workplace has been leading groundbreaking discussions on the management of facilities, FM teams, and workplace projects.
