Ep. 36: FMs & Partners

Ep. 36: FMs & Partners "Collabor8" | Lena Thompson & Mike Petrusky

May 9, 2017


What makes a successful FM industry-partner? Reflecting back to IFMA's Facility Fusion 2017 and their presentation on "Partnering for Excellence", Lena Thompson, FMP and Mike Petrusky reminisce about the rewarding time spent in Las Vegas. They both agree that making connections and sharing knowledge were the top priorities for this conference and should be our goal at every FM industry event. Getting outside of our comfort zones and working together to face challenges and changes in the workplace is essential to meeting the needs of the built environment. Lena and Mike share a passion for elevating the facility management profession by breaking down barriers, proving our value, and building a culture of collaboration in the FM community. There are many areas that FMs need to know about and effective industry-partners will bring information and value to the table via blogs, videos, and webinars. Mike says that “everyone is a salesperson” and FMs must be ready to sell solutions while Lena shares a real-life example of how she uses the tactics discussed in their presentation to deliver ideas to her leadership. There are stories about good food and fun times on The Strip and you will be inspired to do what it takes to Be an FM innovator!®
