Keynote speakers to include Sir Ian Taylor and Sir Richard Hadley.

The Building Service Contractors Association of New Zealand (BSCNZ) will host an exclusive industry conference in conjunction with CleanNZ Expo, with keynote speakers to include Sir Richard Hadlee and Sir Ian Taylor.

The BSCNZ Evolve Industry Conference will run alongside the highly anticipated CleanNZ Expo on Tuesday 25 October and Wednesday 26 October.

Sarah McBride, CEO of BSCNZ, said the conference has been tailored to educate, motivate, and inspire success.

“This conference is solely dedicated to the commercial cleaning industry. Our [2019] industry conference was hailed a success by BSCNZ members and attendees, and this year we are working on continuing that momentum and high standard.

Each speaker will bring to the stage their own learnings and knowledge to share with the group. This event has a focus on effective leadership, industry learnings, and inspiring speakers. Inspiration that will go beyond industry related topics and into our daily lives,” McBride said.

Hosted by Kerre McIvor, the BSCNZ Evolve Industry Conference will feature an extensive line up of speakers including Sir Richard Hadley; Sir Ian Taylor; Kirk Hope, CEO of BusinessNZ; and ANZ chief economist, Sharon Zollner.

Evolve will also feature a dual networking event for BSCNZ and Facilities Management Association of New Zealand (FMANZ) members. The dual networking event will take place following the first day of conference.

“The BSCNZ and FMANZ saw the event collaboration as an opportunity to bring the two association members together,” said McBride.

The conference will conclude with a gala dinner to be held at Sky City.

“Without our generous sponsors the CleanNZ Expo and the BSCNZ Evolve Industry Conference would not be possible to a since thank you to all, including our gold sponsor Kärcher New Zealand; silver sponsors Bunzl, Mobil, Careerforce, and Kiwi Maintenance Group; and our bronze sponsor, Filta.

“Our FMANZ and BSCNZ networking event is sponsored by Tork Professional Hygiene, Essity. Special thanks also to Auckland Unlimited for their ongoing support assisting the BSCNZ to run a successful Auckland even,” said McBride.
