Efficiency takes centre stage at ACFO Conference

Key issues confronting fleets will be under the spotlight at ACFO’s annual Conference and AGM which will have a theme of ‘efficiency’.

Efficient drivers, efficient training, efficient fleet management policies and efficient technology and how they apply to all aspects of vehicle fleet operation and business mobility will be among the issues addressed by speakers at the conference.

Taking place on Wednesday, May 23, at Mercedes-Benz World, Brooklands, Weybridge. The event starts at 9.45am, with registration and light refreshments available from 9.00am.

The Conference will kick-off with Sgt Gareth Morgan, supervisor of South Wales Police Driver Training tackling the issue of ‘efficient drivers’ through training and psychometric testing and will continue with David Nicholas, fleet consultant at the Energy Savings Trust, explaining how ‘efficient driving’ delivers the twin benefits of cost savings and improved safety.

Nik Butcher, global rewards manager of RS Components, will focus on ‘efficient policies’ and notably highlighting how HR issues impact on fleet management.

Finally, the Conference will hear how ‘efficient technology’ can boost fleet operations from Paul Bandell, general manager Ingenium Dynamics, an integrated incident management and driver behaviour analysis system that has been brought to the market by FMG Support.

ACFO chairman Julie Jenner said: “Once again a top quality and highly relevant Conference programme has been compiled, which should be of interest to all fleet decision-makers whether they are professional fleet managers or ‘run the fleet’ against a background in HR, facilities, finance or procurement.

“The event will provide members and guests with the opportunity to hear the views of experts and obtain answers to key questions to enable them to further improve the operational effectiveness and efficiency of their fleet.”

There are some opportunities for non-member fleet decision-makers interested in ACFO’s work to attend as guests, by contacting the Membership Secretariat Office (in Petersfield) on 01730 260162/info@acfo.org.
