Last week, the Insight Executive Group (IEG) enjoyed participating in the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM) Northern Ball held at the Hilton, Deansgate, in Manchester. This prestigious event not only served as a vibrant networking platform for facilities management professionals but also supported charitable causes, demonstrating the profound impact of community engagement in the industry.
