Share on

On October 19, 2017, for the first time ever, “The FM Innovator Nation” gathered during IFMA's World Workplace in Houston, TX. With a mission to inspire and motivate our FM community, Mike Petrusky (the host of "The Facility Management Innovator Podcast” on iTunes) led participants through a "live podcast experience" as he talked with FM industry-leaders about workplace trends, challenges, and the future of the built environment. The “FMI Summit” brings together people who believe in building partnerships that will allow us to face the workplace evolution together. Our community recognizes that a true "culture of collaboration" is required to help industry-professionals innovate and adapt in order to keep pace with the changing marketplace. The event focused on our common human experiences and encouraged us all to get outside of our comfort zones. Andrea Sanchez of Spark Story opened the show with an inspirational talk which was followed by live interviews with Dr. Jake Gunnoe, Robert Kleimenhagen, Jr., CFM, SFP, Elizabeth Dukes, and Peter Ankerstjerne. Tyrel Melville, FMP, shared a report from the Caribbean Nations and offered a moving call to action for FMs and Kay Sargent of HOK delivered a virtual presentation on "The Big Shift" taking place in the transformational workplace. The event kicked off a busy day at #WWPHou17 with motivational music and inspirational content to help our podcast community elevate the FM profession and to…Be an FM innovator!®
