ISSA experts presenting at this year’s Experience Convention

The international conference has become popular with visitors from Australia and New Zealand.

The Experience Convention and Trade Show, held this year in Las Vegas on 4-6 September, has proved an increasingly popular destination for Australians and New Zealanders working in the cleaning industry.

Designed for ambitious cleaning and restoration professionals seeking to grow their small business and increase profits, the Experience provides three days of direct, hands-on training.

The conference has built a reputation for top-level keynote speakers, so it is with some pride that ISSA has announced Jeff Cross, ISSA Media director, and Gavin Macgregor-Skinner, senior director of the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), a division of ISSA, will be presenting.

Cross will speak on The Butterfly Effect, What You Do Now Effects Everything in the Future. In this audience-centric discussion, Cross will cover how seemingly insignificant actions can and will impact the future of your company.

While you won’t change world events or alter significant history as portrayed in the hit movie The Butterfly Effect, every action taken by you, or your staff, has consequences. In this fast-paced, one-hour presentation Cross will focus on actions business owners, managers, and technicians engage in that can spell success—or disaster.

Macgregor-Skinner will present Biofilms: Miss Them and They Will Cause Trouble. This session will examine what biofilms are; how to detect them; discusses the health risks and structural damage associated with biofilm presence; and cover knowledge and tools needed to combat biofilm-related issues — ensuring safer and cleaner environments.

Biofilms present a significant challenge in maintaining clean and healthy environments in buildings. A biofilm is a community of bacteria that adhere to a surface and can form on just about any type of surface. Bacteria like to organize themselves into a biofilm on surfaces and develop up to 10 times faster than if they were alone in the environment. The layer surrounding them gives them the ability to resist cleaning and disinfection products 100 times more. These structured communities of microorganisms adhere to surfaces and are notoriously difficult to remove using conventional cleaning methods.
