Cushman & Wakefield, Riyadh: January 9, 2018 – The organisers of the Facilities Management Congress Middle East (FM EXPO) invited Richard Naylor, Chief Executive of Cushman & Wakefield Saudi Arabia, and Michael Moore, Operations Direction and Principal Consultant of Cushman & Wakefield Saudi Arabia to be part of this years’ conference on 14-16 January 2018, Jeddah.
With “Connect with a $29.1 BN Facilities Management Industry” as this year’s conference theme, Richard will be part of the opening panel discussion to talk about “Saudi Arabia Macro Market Update: Through an FM lens” which will include Saudi Arabia’s 2030 Vision and PFI opportunities, increasing saudisation targets, women in the workforce and changes to tax regimes as some of the topics to be discussed.
“I will be sharing the panel with a number of esteemed industry colleagues and I hope that our session will help to provide insight into the macroeconomic changes taking place in the FM industry in Saudi Arabia,” commented Richard Naylor.
The opening panel will be followed by a presentation from another Cushman & Wakefield executive, Mike Moore. Presenting on the topic of ‘PPP Policy Implications”, Mike will further discuss the PPP opportunities versus staffing challenges: Analysing the impact of privatization and regulatory changes to the industry and implications for recruitment and employment. Topics covered will include the 2030 Vision and its reliance on an extensive and successful PPP programme, snapshot of PPP – what is it? how it works? why should I care? scale and makeup of the opportunity presented – Dollar value/staffing numbers, and challenges and solutions.
“Among the topics that I have presented on various Facilities Management conferences in the Middle East, I must say that this subject is one of the most significant. Given the scale of the economic changes happening in the Kingdom and its implementation of the 2030 Vision, I believe that my presentation will influence future strategic plans for players within the FM industry”.
