The final fleet decision-maker places are available to attend the autumn 2017 workshop hosted by the Fleet Industry Advisory Group (FIAG), which, during round table discussions, will investigate the future composition and fuel of choice of Britain’s company car fleets as well as how to more effectively manage drivers and journeys.
The debate at the event on Thursday, October 19, 2017 sponsored by driver risk management specialist Automotional is being held at the company’s Training Centre located within the Formula E Paddock at Donington Park Race Circuit close to the M1 in Derbyshire, will focus on:
Round table debates among seminar delegates discussing each topic will be preceded by short presentations from industry experts:
Annual FIAG membership costs £100 per person, which includes attendance at the organisation’s workshops. Members are encouraged to introduce FIAG to fellow fleet decision-makers with guests able to attend workshops at a cost of £25 per person per event.
Mr Bray said: “Whether a full-time professional fleet manager or a finance, HR or procurement expert with part-time fleet responsibility, the issues raised and topics to be discussed at the workshop are of vital importance to them and their employers.
“The fleet management world is rapidly changing and those in charge of vehicles and drivers need to react, review all current policies and implement change where deemed necessary. To retain the status quo will not be an option in most fleets.
“The speakers and round table debates will be thought provoking and will generate new ideas and opportunities that attending fleet decision-makers can learn from and adapt to meet the requirements of their own vehicle operations.”
FIAG was launched more than three years ago by industry veteran Mr Bray and a team of highly experienced professional fleet managers who collectively have around 200 years’ experience in running vehicle operations.
Utilising the wealth of knowledge and experience of its founding members - as well as other fleet decision-makers when they join FIAG - the organisation provides fleet advice, consultancy and support through the mentoring of newcomers to the role of fleet manager and less experienced employees with car, van and HGV responsibility.
The half-day workshop starts at 9.30am and will be followed by a buffet lunch.
