Pickwick was a major sponsor of the Tertiary Education Facilities Management Association’s (TEFMA) annual Grounds Workshop at Deakin University on November 6 and 7.
Last week TEFMA held their 2019 Grounds Workshop. Hosted by one of our major clients, Deakin University at their Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus, this year Pickwick had the exciting opportunity to support the annual event as a major sponsor and exhibitor along with delegate attendees. And what a success it was.
More than 60 representatives from Australia and NZ attended the two-day professional development and networking workshop to hear industry contributions on improving campus environments and the campus experience through sustainability initiatives and technology.
As the facilities services provider to numerous primary, secondary and tertiary institutions across Australia, educational spaces are fundamental to our operations. Supporting industry events like the TEFMA Grounds Workshop gives us access to valuable information that helps us stay up to date and ahead of industry developments and supports our continual improvement.
It also gives us the opportunity to catch up with exiting partners and make new connections with like-minded professionals as we demonstrate our capabilities to a broad and engaged audience.
Through our support of TEFMA Pickwick also donated $500 to BrAshA-T to help raise awareness and funds for research. A-T (Ataxia-Telangiectasia) is a rare and complex genetic neurodegenerative disorder. To learn more about their research or donate, visit brashat.org.au.
