Cleaning Show free-to-attend conference - new speakers announced
New speakers have been announced for the free-to-attend, three-day conference running alongside The Cleaning Show:
* Syed Ahmed (pictured), CEO, Savortex will discuss the Internet of Things and how it can benefit the cleaning industry. Syed will show how IoT can help identify the hidden risks in buildings that humans can't - in terms of energy, waste and resources.
* The healthcare waste management sector in the UK faces a number of challenges including treatment capacity, effective waste segregation, labelling and containment, and cost efficiencies. Dr Terry Tudor, Senior Lecturer in Waste Management, Northampton University will show how you can utilise the circular economy principles to tackle these challenges.
* Why is food poisoning still a problem? What is being done about it? And how we can reduce the numbers? Pete Gowers, Food Hygiene Expert, BICSc will use his wealth of industry knowledge to explain how businesses can reduce the risk of food poisoning and how to manage this challenging situation.
