Conference Speakers:

John Freisinger, Executive Director, Innovate ABQ – Conference Keynote

Presentation Title: Management Lessons from Beneath the Beekeepers Veil

Randy Sanchez, GM (The Mayor), Coronado Center

Presentation Title: Maintaining Relevance in a Competitive Retail Market 

Summary: Managing a 1.2 million square foot super regional shopping center with over 12 million visitors a year has its challenges with maintenance and upkeep.

 Katie K. Snapp:

Presentation Title: Human Factors: People Who Need People …. Like Facilities People

Summary: Humans are at the heart of what we do in facilities. But somewhere in the crafting of the big picture, their fundamental needs can get lost in more “important” strategies. It’s not that our organizations don’t care about people, it’s that how our services directly impact their productivity and engagement gets lost in the conversation to senior leadership. Let’s find some key lessons in how to better bridge that gap.

 Alfred Sena, Director, UNM Physical Plant
