IDEACTION.VIRTUAL

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s National Conference & Exhibition will be held as a virtual event. Join us for Ideaction.Virtual on Tuesday 2 June 2020!

The theme of this year’s conference – Ahead of the Game 2020: Virtualising the FM Industry – reflects the way our world has changed since the sudden outbreak of coronavirus. As we struggle to adapt to the sweeping changes in our daily lives, most facilities remain open and buildings still need to be maintained. As an essential service, the facilities management industry must adapt to the different circumstances in order to continue operating safely and efficiently throughout the lockdown.

By switching to a virtual platform, the Association is able to continue its objectives to act as a thought leader, to encourage knowledge sharing, and to foster connections across the industry. The comprehensive program will include a range of online features, such as webinars, live panel discussions, online presentations and interactive Q&A sessions.

We are confident that the opportunities offered by modern technology will allow us to deliver the usual knowledge-rich conference experience that has supported learning and development in our industry for over 25 years. We hope you will join us in embracing this unique learning opportunity.

INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE

In light of the constantly evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation, we have made the decision to hold Ideaction.2020 as a virtual conference. This will allow us to continue encouraging industry thought leadership and knowledge sharing, while safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our members, event attendees and staff.

We are confident that a comprehensive virtual program can deliver the knowledge-rich conference experience that has supported learning and development in our industry for over 25 years. The virtual program will include a range of online features such as live webinars, panel discussions, online presentations and interactive Q&A sessions.

We believe that a digital platform offers many exciting possibilities, and hope you will join us as we rise to the challenges and opportunities of a new decade.

The theme of this year’s conference, Ahead of the Game 2020: Virtualising the FM Industry, focuses on today’s rapidly changing environment. We will explore what lies ahead, while embracing new trends and technologies. There is an expectation that this year’s content will attract a high degree of interest, given its direct relationship to contemporary issues.

The four streams remain unchanged: Defining the FM Future, Building Momentum in FM, Standards & Regulations and Social Responsibility in FM. As with previous years, the National Conference will give FM professionals the opportunity to better understand the changing landscape through research, case studies and shared experiences.

I hope you can join us for Ideaction.Virtual, our first virtual National Conference!

      General practices and other service providers may benefit from UNE Partnerships training initiatives which aim to attract, engage and develop a skilled and qualified healthcare workforce.

      Many of our courses are 100% online, meaning you do not need to leave your home or workplace to complete your studies.

        An information webinar for QAIHC students was held last week by UNE Partnership’s Program Manager – Margaret Kirby.

        Erica Lowah (pictured) from Purple House – Alice Springs (Western Desert Nganampa Walytja Palyantjaku Tjutaku Aboriginal Corporation), was a participant. “I really enjoyed the Certificate III in Business Administration (Medical) course with UNE Partnerships. I loved my first webinar lesson, I was bit apprehensive and anxious at first but UNEP mentored me through and made me feel at ease, now I feel really confident, thank you.”

        Our Program Manager – Margaret, was very touched by the feedback from Erica. “Today we covered writing simple documents and managing schedules in the webinar, it was great to see Erica in the Webinar and was pleased to see that she had already completed some tasks. Well done Erica!”

        Erica is being supported by UNE Partnerships through a series of online learning webinars and one on one mentored training.

                    Suzanne Crew, UNE Partnerships CEO described some of the strengths of this highly customised training program on the day;

                    “UNE Partnerships is extremely proud of its association with the NSW Government Graduate Program and the role the Diploma of Government plays not only in the success of the Program but in the long-term future of each Graduate.

                    As an educator and trainer of the workforce of tomorrow, I know that a future-focused Program that instils the hard and soft skills required of graduates to tackle some of the complex and wicked problems governments face is essential for the economic, social and environmental future of our State”. 

                     

                    Graduates were also treated to an inspiring speech from Emma Hogan, who shared some of the highs and lows of her career journey from an early school leaver, to eventually become the NSW Public Service Commissioner, imparting some valuable life lessons and career advice to everyone who was fortunate enough to attend.

                    UNE Partnerships looks forward to continuing this important relationship with the NSW Public Service Commission and we wish all of the graduates every success into the future.
