Facilities management provider Servest Group has sponsored the Women in Property and FM networking event, which takes place on 12th June at the BBC’s headquarters, New Broadcasting House in central London.
As well as having the opportunity to network, delegates will get to hear from guest speaker Carolyn Pearson, founder and CEO of Maiden Voyage, the business women’s travel network. They will also hear from Alex Smith, who founded Harrison’s Fund to raise money to help to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy after his young son Harrison was diagnosed with the condition in January 2011.
Event sponsors Servest will be providing the food and drink for the event, including champagne for the delegates as they arrive. In April, Servest began a three-year contract to provide catering to 18 BBC locations around the UK including New Broadcasting House.
Norma Bresciani, Managing Director London at Servest, said: “Servest is delighted to be sponsoring the Women in Property and FM networking event.”
Bresciani added: “Some very senior influential ladies in the property and FM industries will be attending and supporting the event, which is a great. I’m very pleased to be involved in bringing together these senior leaders and fostering a safe environment for young talent to network with senior women who can possibly assist in mentoring and coaching them.”
Stuart Bonner, Director of recruiters Investigo Property, which supports Harrison’s Fund, said: “Initiatives to drive more females into the industry and young talent in general is in everyone’s interest and if we can develop more forums that helps raise the profile of the industry and the opportunities available, this will benefit us all.
