Festival of Maintenance

The Festival of Maintenance will be a celebration of those who maintain different parts of our world, and how they do it, exploring and recognising the often hidden work done in repair, custodianship, stewardship, tending and caring for the things that matter.

Executive coach Alex Mecklenburg @petite_a will be talking about her pet hate: how most organisations are fascinated with ‘fixing’ things. Fixers get airtime and budget. But hardly anybody wants to be known as a ‘Maintainer’ and maintenance budgets are notoriously tight.


All day, Saturday 22nd September 2018, for short talks and discussion with diverse maintainers and those who support them.

At: University of London Conferences Central, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HY, UK
