A key part of Hannah's role and that of other members of the board is to promote the strategic FM service and help organisations better understand their needs and requirements. Hannah will support the RICS through various working groups looking at standards, training and public relations.
Hannah's first major commitment since her appointment will be to speak at the RICS Strategic Facilities Management Conference later this month. She will be showcasing the 'FM Maturity Matrix', a self-assessment tool designed to help organisations understand where they are in terms of their FM maturity – and the next steps they should be thinking about. The tool is expected to be launched later this year.
"Hannah's appointment is a great opportunity for her to positively influence how the FM industry develops."
Dan Weiss, Faithful+Gould Director
