Events round-up: Act quickly to secure your place at conference

Feedback from our first Hit For Six conference, held in Oxford yesterday:

Helen Bolton, Ceuta Healthcare: "As usual for Fleet News, a well planned, organised and informative event."

Liz Hollands, DTZ Debenham Tie Leung: "The conference has hit a lot of different topics. It has provided good value and debate and I have come away with a lot of different ideas."

Time is running out for fleets wanting to book a place at this year’s Hit for Six Conference, as the final 2007 event takes place in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, next week.

Among the key issues covered will be risk management, green fleet management, training and advice, tendering, wholelife costs, taxation, funding and much more.

Fleet News revealed last week that the Crown Prosecution Service is looking at tough new penalties which include up to two years in jail for drivers convicted of dangerous driving while using devices such as mobile phones or sat-nav.

With this in mind, one of the keynote sessions at the conference will cover effective risk management, sponsored by Lex.

Among the other issues covered at Hit for Six North on September 26 will be the future of fuel, covered by Malcolm Noyle, director of Noyle Fleet Solutions.

Nigel Underdown, head of transport energy advice at the Energy Saving Trust, will be providing best practice advice on green fleet management techniques.

A segment on fleet software, tracking and gadgets will include a session on in-office technology including software and internet-based services.

A session on taxation will be provided by PricewaterhouseCoopers, while Deloitte will be providing funding advice. Experts from CAP will be looking at residual values and how to manage wholelife costs.
