BIFM Award for Workplace Law Conference Chairman

The chairman of Workplace Law’s forthcoming 10th Anniversary Facilities Management Legal Update Conference, Martin Pickard, has won a prestigious award for his contribution to journalism over the last five years.

In 50 columns over five years, ‘Dear Guru’ has answered 260 questions on topics ranging from body odour and ladybirds to outsourcing and maintenance. ‘Dear Guru’ is written as a practical aid to facilities managers in their daily working lives.

Martin says:

"I am delighted to win the Best article in FM Journalism award. The Dear Guru column aims to provide practical advice to FMs in their daily roles and I am enormously pleased with the recognition the column has received.

"I will be taking the same enthusiasm and passion for facilities management best practice into my role as Chairman of Workplace Law's 10th Anniversary Facilities Management Legal Update Conference next February."

Martin is just one of the experts set to appear at the Facilities Management Legal Update Conference in February 2009, which is set to be bigger and better than ever to celebrate its tenth anniversary.

In the style of the ‘Dear Guru’ column, facilities managers attending the event will be able to ask experts questions and network with colleagues from across the UK. With two days of seminars, workshops, and round table sessions to keep you informed and up to date with all the latest changes to legislation and best practice that affects you in your workplace this event promises to add value to your organisation in an uncertain economic climate.
