Busy, busy, busy

Its official the government has cancelled FM from next year. Yes, we should be concerned because we are not sure what to do with all of our ‘Frequency Modulating; radios

Latest news to be confirmed… We hear Europa Support Services has been acquired by Bilfinger.

In light of Cofely's acquisition of Balfour Beatty it will be interesting to see what this will mean to Balfour's contract with EDF Energy. 

We understand Jones Lang LaSalle are starting a recruitment drive.

Delighted to have FM Job Search, owned by Paul Stephens and Steve Small, on board as a sponsoring partner with ThisWeekinFM. 

The air that you breathe..... Concerned to hear from Camfil's Peter Dyment about London's low air quality being in many areas dangerously high in pollutants. What is being done to protect your workforce?

The ThisWeekinFM LinkedIn group now has 997 members and we urge you to join if you're not already a member, who is going to be our 1,000?

It's Christmas.. .Well it's nearly here, and the team at ThisWeekinFM are looking forward to the Xmas holiday. Our office will close from 20th December to 2nd January 2014. Have a great break.

Have a great week. (We also have some more breaking news next weeks,still researched, keep your eyes peeled)



Our sources tell us the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM ) has signed a new (ongoing) partnership agreement with United Business Media that means Facilities Show will have BIFM's exclusive support. 

James Ellis has joined Excitech as Head of CAFM, good luck James a great role.

We caught up with Jamie Reynolds, MD with Initial Facilities the other night. Jamie and Lee Clifford were in buoyant mood as Simon Farmer, Initial's Director of Energy, told us about their partnership arrangement with Accenture. Exciting times ahead we feel for Jamie and his team. 

Went to the PRS Christmas event, great evening, thanks to all, and they raised a significant amount of money in their Charity raffle.

We are also delighted to announce that following the highly successful inaugural Doyle Club St George's Day Luncheon this year, the Doyle Club in association with ThisWeekinFM will be organising the Luncheon again in 2014. Good food, plenty to drink, a bit of a sing-a-long, and great company. It’s going to be another great day.

Don't forget the next Doyle Club will not be held on the first Thursday in January. It has been moved to the second Thursday (9th Jan) at the normal venue.

Shock news we hear the one of the largest FM providers are to shed 1000 jobs across the UK. Not great.

And lastly, misletoe is in short supply this year, get yours early.
