The seminar series that discusses all aspects of the facilities management discipline.

At FSI, we are only too aware of the KPI's placed on organisations regarding facilities management measurement and reporting processes. It is therefore vital Facilities Managers keep abreast of the latest developments within the industry, and this is the driving force behind the Tune in to FM seminar series.

The inaugural seminar was held at the London Stock Exchange in February 2004, and attracted an audience far bigger than we dared to hope for a new seminar available in the CAFM marketplace. Successful seminars have followed at client sites including: Sheffield Hallam University, Landflex, the Ministry of Defence, Anglia Polytechnic University, Airbus, the Natural History Museum, the Bank of England, Harrods, and the latest seminar at Wellcome Trust.

To ensure the seminars aren't a platform for Concept™ and FSI, we have delivered well-rounded programmes, thus providing the overall picture of facilities management, and the integration tools available to make the job easier
