Dr Dorian Dugmore, one of the world’s foremost authorities on corporate wellness and its impact on company performance, is to speak at the Builders Merchants Federation’s Members’ Day Annual Conference which takes place on 27 September 2018.

Dr Dugmore, who has worked in cardiovascular medicine and wellness for 30 years, is on the Board of the League Managers Association at the FA Elite Performance Centre at St George’s Park, where the BMF conference takes place. He invented the Fit to Manage programme, which focuses on reducing stress and heart disease in management and is now used by a wide range of football managers and many other clients.

He has earned numerous awards for his work, including an MEB “Heart of Britain Award” recognising his contribution to improving life within the community.

BMF CEO, John Newcomb said: “Anyone who heard Dorian Dugmore speak at the BMF All Industry Conference back in 2013 knows they can expect a fascinating insight into protecting yourself and your team from the stresses and strains of corporate life. Following on from that event Dorian designed a Wellness Programme specifically tailored for our industry, which BMF has implemented with its own staff, and BMF members will find extremely helpful.”

The theme of BMF Members’ Day Annual Conference 2018 is “The Future belongs to the Bold”. The Business Conference is followed by the BMF’s black-tie Awards Dinner, which celebrates the achievements of young people working in the industry, both take place on 27 September.

The BMF’s annual Golf Tournament and other social activities will be held on the previous day, 26 September, when delegates will have a unique opportunity to look around St George’s Park, England football’s magnificent training facility, where Member’s Day is being held.

The BMF thanks Encon Insulation, the headline sponsor of BMF Members’ Day Annual Conference and Awards 2018, and Marsh Industries and Monument Tools, who sponsor the Awards Dinner and Golf Tournament.
