Inspirational speakers to motivate cleaning and FM leaders at Facilities Show 2017
The world-class speaker programme at Facilities Show 2017 includes inspirational presentations from physicist and TV science presenter, Professor Brian Cox OBE; double Olympic gold medallist, Dame Kelly Holmes, and Falklands War veteran, Simon Weston OBE.
These three keynote speakers join a host of industry specialists sharing over 30 hours of practical and strategic cleaning and FM content, from 20th - 22nd June 2017 at ExCeL London.
The Inspirational Speaker Series gives visitors the opportunity to hear from leaders outside of the cleaning and facilities profession, whose achievements are remarkable and incredibly inspiring. The three high-profile speakers will give presentations in the Keynote Theatre, sponsored by Honeywell.
The substantial speaker programme features practical cleaning and FM insights from hand-picked industry experts across a wide range of business sectors. From two large seminar theatres on the exhibition floor, experts will debate the most topical issues affecting the sector including Brexit transition, smart buildings, sustainability measures, maintenance and machinery and much more.
Dame Kelly Holmes, presenting 20th June, 11.30 - 12.30 and joining a panel debate 12.30 - 13.15 is best known for her success in the 2004 Olympics, where she won two golds and became only the second woman in history to claim the 800m and 1500m titles for British athletics. Prior to her track fame she served almost 10 years in the military and was awarded an MBE for her services to the British Army. What many people may not know is that she has also battled with depression, and at Safety & Health Expo, following her keynote speech, Dame Kelly will share her struggles on the show's mental health panel discussion. This will immediately follow her speech on 'having the passion, compassion and courage to succeed' on 20th June.
Professor Brian Cox OBE, presenting 21st June, 11.30 - 12.30 is one of UK's most famous physicists, having made the world of science so engaging and accessible to the masses. He has played a key part in the Atlas and Cern Large Hadron Collider projects, whilst still finding time to take part in TV programmes such as 'Wonders of the Universe' and 'Wonders of the Solar System', viewed around the world by millions. Many will also know him from his keyboard-playing days in D:Ream, the pop band behind the 90's hit single, 'Things Can Only Get Better'. Professor Cox will be 'Exploring the Universe' on 21st June.
Simon Weston CBE, presenting 22nd June, 11.30 - 12.30, was aboard HMS Sir Galahad with the Welsh guard regiment when it was bombed by Argentinean planes during the Falklands War. The horrific burns he suffered required a series of operations that continue to this day. Despite his injuries and the physical and mental suffering, Simon's life is an example of great personal triumph and courage. He is a true role model for positive mental attitude and overcoming hardship. Simon will share his very personal story about 'turning adversity into opportunity' on 22nd June.
