INNOVATION ZONE: THE MOST INNOVATIVE COMPANIES AROUND SHOWCASE THEIR NEW & INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS THAT WILL RE-INVENT THE INDUSTRY

12:40 – LUNCH BREAK

Learn about the importance of cleaning as a two-stage process, and how to guarantee a safe working environment.
The world of cleaning and hygiene has changed. Now is our opportunity to put ourselves forward as the short, medium and long term solution to workplace confidence and productivity. In this session Mike Boxall, Managing Director of Sitemark Limited, will share his recent experience of service provider best practice so that delegates can identify the areas that need to be addressed, and learn how others are adapting to a focus on hygiene cleaning standards and not just visual ones. Now is the time to move away from dated productivity calculations and finally to a position where we can demonstrate the value of investing in well equipped, well- trained and well manged cleaning service so that we can reduce our overall cost of cleaning.
Founded in 2001 Knittler Medien is now located in Egenhausen in the Northern Black Forest (Germany). The media house publishes the cleaning industry trade magazine Reinigungs Markt, international edition Cleaning World, contract cleaner magazine Gebäudereiniger and the ergonomics industry magazine Ergonomie Markt.
As we look to manage the virus in respect of mitigating associated risk, cleaning has an imperative role to play in implementing and delivering one of the key control measures.  Industry training is essential and adopting the right process and methodology will support the challenge in keeping buildings open, safe and fully operational through the provision of a creditable service delivery.
An already rapidly-changing world of work has been drastically accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. This session offers a look at pre-COVID workplace environmental, health, and safety (EHS) trends, then overlays new findings from an employer survey and future of work research effort (Safe Actions for Employee Returns) initiative. Topics covered will include safety technology, demographics, health and wellbeing, COVID-19 response successes and challenges, and the emerging "new normal."

09:50 – REFRESHMENT BREAK

INNOVATION ZONE: THE MOST INNOVATIVE COMPANIES AROUND SHOWCASE THEIR NEW & INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS THAT WILL RE-INVENT THE INDUSTRY

Cleaning is a fundamental requirement for all companies. With time and cost pressures versus customer and third party audit requirements, there remains a need for all companies to be up-to-date with the latest technologies, science and methods to ensure their cleaning is effective, efficient and evolving. Hillbrush discuss the difference between clean surfaces and hygienic surfaces and how new innovative technology can help both the food industry and the general public.

11:45 – REFRESHMENT BREAK

Steve Courtney will demo Toucan Eco, explain the technology behind it, and share examples of where it’s being used here in the UK, as well as in developing countries to turn polluted water into safe drinking water.
The shift to cobotics (the collaboration of humans and robots) within FM and cleaning is gathering pace as businesses look for innovative solutions to meet heightened demand for cleaning services in the face of COVID-19. In this session, we will introduce the concept of cobotics and explore the benefits that cobots can deliver, driving cleaning performance and consistency, increasing productivity and freeing up time for frontline staff to focus on the deep sanitisation of hard surfaces. We’ll also show how Whiz, our cobotic vacuum sweeper, is helping cleaning contractors to drive innovation, improve staff engagement and transform their operating models in a cost-effective and highly measurable way. 
Award-winning inspirational speaker, Marcus Child, Founder of Positive Reframe will speak about resetting your mindset, leading for resilience, resourcefulness and getting positive business results post COVID-19. Marcus has won 32 awards, worked in 36 countries and enjoyed 24 years of speaking to business leaders. He inspires confidence, wholeheartedness and courage, and is known for helping thousands of people in hundreds of big brands and SMEs embrace daily life and times of change, positively and successfully. In stirring conversations with his audiences, he kindles resourcefulness and self-belief in individuals, positivity between colleagues and trust between organisations and their customers.
