Seminars for fleet managers revised and updated for 2012

Jaama’s one-day Fleet Management Essentials seminars have been revised and updated for 2012 to reflect best practice in a number of key areas including grey fleet management, car salary sacrifice schemes and employee driving licence checking.

The seminars have proved extremely popular over the years with a wide cross-section of full-time professional fleet decision-makers as well as administrators and managers who have the responsibility, but not necessarily the experience or specialist knowledge of running a fleet of vehicles.

More than 800 people have so far attended Jaama’s fleet seminars where they have been able to learn about best practice strategies in key operational areas, the very latest legislation and forthcoming regulatory changes, and the application of fleet strategies that aim to deliver cost savings.

Seminar prices have been held this year at the reduced price of £295 + VAT per delegate including all course documentation, policies (usually priced at £120), lunch and refreshments.

Fleet Managements Essentials seminars will be held on: Tuesday, April 17, at Waltham Abbey Marriott Hotel; Thursday, April 19, Cedar Court Hotel, Leeds/Bradford; Tuesday, April 24, Honiley Court Hotel, Warwickshire; and Thursday, April 26, Brook Madison Hotel, Swindon.

Jaama managing director Jason Francis said: “Our entire seminar programme has proved very popular in the almost eight years we have been running it, with those employees who combine fleet responsibility with another role in their organisation, those who have financial or HR responsibility for the fleet and those who are new to vehicle management.

“The whole area of fleet management can be daunting, especially in the current climate of stringent cost control, environmental impact reduction and ensuring comprehensive duty of care for employees.

"In addition, we recognise and appreciate that operators of smaller or employee-owned fleets do not always have the luxury of a full time dedicated fleet manager and often the responsibility for the fleet can be across departments.”
