IPFMA Service Provider Directory & Annual Lunch
The IPFMA has produced a new on-line service directory to provide easy access to service providers to the property and facility management industry. In addition to members, industry professionals and the general public can access it freely.
Searched by category under both function and location, the Directory can also be used to extend a tender to selected providers via auto email. Following the launch in late 2012, attended by entrepreneur and businessman Bobby Kerr, a number of service providers have already joined. More than 40 attended the event, including Skyway, Willis, Expert Security, Greenstar, Forensic Cleaning Services, Manguard, AON and City Bin.
IPFMA wants more service providers to become involved (terms and conditions apply). They can select functions under which they wish to be categorised and multi-function providers can opt to be included in multiple categories.
IPFMA Members Annual Lunch — The IPFMA Annual Members Lunch 2013, which will take place at the Burlington Hotel, Ballsbridge, on the eve of the Ireland v France home game, on Friday 8 March. This year’s guest speaker is Paul McNeive, the well-known motivational speaker.
A chartered surveyor with 28 years’ experience in commercial property, Paul’s life story is an incentive to all. He was a trainee with Hamilton Osborne King when, aged just 20, he lost both legs in a fire. He returned to work, walking on prosthetic legs and 20 years later he was Managing Director, with a staff of 250, when the firm was sold to Savills for €50 million. Tickets cost €75 per person.
