Facilities Management Summit in Frisco, TX
August 24-26, 2020


Leadership Will Make or Break Your Organizational Culture
Panelists include
Joe Malato, National Director of Associate Safety & Risk Management, Valet Living
and more!

Leadership is the cornerstone of a supportive, positive, and productive company culture—and leadership doesn’t stop with the executive team. All managers must be willing to develop their leadership skills in order to ensure everyone within a business is moving in the right direction. Attend our panel discussion to see how professionals in the field are taking the pulse of their organizational cultures, adjusting strategy where necessary, and leading their employees and colleagues towards more successful outcomes.


Crisis Management Tips and Strategies

No facility manager wants to think about a crisis striking their buildings and/or grounds, but that’s no excuse for being unprepared. From natural disasters to workplace violence to a wide variety of other emergencies, the “it can’t happen here” attitude must be overcome by a stance of readiness. In this roundtable, share common tips and strategies to ensure that should the unthinkable happen, your prior planning will minimize the negative effects.

Designing for Organizational Productivity

There are many different ideas out there surrounding facility design, and more is being learned every day about how design can either help or hinder the workforce—where are you finding success? Discuss which designs help optimize organizational productivity and examine all of the factors surrounding open office plans, remodeling, green building, sustainability, plumbing and HVAC, and more.


Empathy: The Security Leadership Superpower
Presented by Burke Brownfeld, Director of Security & Global Safety, Visa

A thought provoking discussion on the practical application of empathy and how to use empathy in strategic security decision making, leveraging best practices in psychology and conflict resolution.

Workplace Emergency Planning: Preparing for Any Situation
Presented by Presented by Robert Ball, Coordinator, Educational Support Services, Safety and Security, Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District

Emergencies can occur at a moment's notice. From severe weather, to a gas leak, to an active shooter, being as prepared as possible equals lives saved.

In this session, participants will learn how to plan for any emergency situation at any facility. This session will cover severe weather readiness, active shooter training suggestions and research, situations that occur after-hours, and basic emergency planning.
