Great Conference! – Asset Management Conference 2013 hosted by the Asset Management Council

Tolerro attended the Asset Management Council’s 2013 Asset Management Conference in Melbourne this month and were really impressed with the quality of speakers and wealth of information that was shared.  Two themes really stood out to us.  Firstly, the widespread support for the ISO 5500x  Standard for Asset Management and the potential this emerging standard has to refine and reform asset management practices.  It is important that asset managers have an understanding of how to align asset management work practices with this standard when it is launched later this year.  The other topic we really enjoyed showcased speakers on organisational change and creating a performance culture.  Valuable insights were gained about the “human factor” being key to the success of all elements of asset management delivery.  All round a great conference to attend for professional development and a wonderful networking opportunity.  For information about the great work that the Asset Management Council does, visit their website at www.amcouncil.com.au
