Serving as director for our local peer to peer networking group for facilities, maintenance and risk professionals has allowed some exposure to the resources and publications in those industries. I had an article published in print late 2016 for a industry leading facilities publication, FM World. The article tilted Powerful Points For Your Next Presentation covers getting buy-in for projects as a professional whether you are presenting to internal executives or networking with external groups. As facilities managers, we all are in sales - marketing our facilities values, creating buy-in for our preventative maintenance budgets and developing collaboration for our management vision. This is true of professionals in all industries at all levels in their organizations. In our modern markets, developing our soft skills as professionals is as important as our technical proficiency. Those who have responsibilities in the arenas of facilities, maintenance and risk may find value in Local Facilities Manager's Connection (LFMC) which meets monthly in the Eugene / Springfield, Oregon area.
