Jaama to host fleet management essentials seminars

Jaama is holding four more of its popular one-day fleet management essentials seminars in April 2014.

Updated with more information on a host of topical areas, the seminars reflect best practice and the impact of changing legislation and taxation in a number of key areas.

The key areas which the spring 2014 seminars will cover are: fuel cost management, Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) compliance, changes to company car benefit-in-kind taxation up to 2016/17 and the late last year introduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (Directors’ Reports) Regulations 2013.

The seminars will also look at key performance indicators to measure to ensure optimum fleet efficiency and effectiveness, grey fleet management, car salary sacrifice schemes, employee driving licence checking and reducing the administrative burden of fleet management through technology.

The seminars will be held on:

Tuesday, April 1 2014 - Jaama’s head office, Tamworth

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 - Ashwell Country Club, Brentwood

Thursday, April 3, 2014 - Hellaby Hall Hotel, Rotherham

Thursday, April 10, 2014 - Castle Combe Circuit, nr Chippenham

Seminars start with registration at 9.30am and conclude with an open question and answer session from 4pm.

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

Anyone who would like to attend one of the four spring fleet management essential seminars or is unable to attend but would like to register their interest should contact Ellie Whiten or Jon Davis at Jaama on 0844 8484 333.

Extra seminars may be added to those already announced and further events will be held later in 2014.

Almost 1,000 people have so far attended Jaama’s fleet management essential seminars.

Ellie Whiten,marketing manager at Jaama, said: “Our seminar programme has proved very popular over the years and undoubtedly helps fleet decision-makers run an effective, efficient and legal fleet of vehicles and drivers.

“The seminars are particularly attractive to administrators and managers who have the responsibility but not necessarily the experience or specialist knowledge of running a fleet of vehicles, as well as fleet professionals who require an update on new legislation and a refresher on best practice and new developments in managing a fleet of vehicles.”
