As Nigeria positions to stimulate its economic potentials through infrastructure and real estate activities, corporations and businesses around the country also continue to seek ways of saving cost, improving people’s productivity, and increasing bottom line. The Nigerian FM Roundtable 2016 therefore presents a platform for all stakeholders in business and government to discuss ways of optimizing existing infrastructure, sustainable strategies for new ones, and the role of FM in Nigeria's journey to economic prosperity.
These issues and more are entrenched in the theme of the roundtable: Empowering People for a Productive World, as released by the Global FM body. This year's roundtable therefore seeks to highlight the place of FM in empowering the Nigerian people for the level of productivity required for the nation to achieve its economic goals. It seeks to look at the concept of empowering people for productivity from two perspectives: those who provide FM services, and those who beneﬁt or consume FM services. These perspectives of people will drive conversations at the diﬀerent breakout sessions planned into the roundtable. The breakout sessions shall focus on how FM can empower people in the Infrastructure and Construction, Residential and Retail Real Estate, and Corporate Real Estate markets to improve Nigeria's productivity.
