Beginners guide to fleet management on the menu at Fleet Management Live

The Institute of Car Fleet Management will be holding a special breakfast briefing for new fleet decision makers at Fleet Management Live next month.

Aimed at new fleet managers including HR, finance and procurement professionals, who suddenly find themselves responsible for company vehicles, the Breakfast for Beginners will provide the perfect introduction to the industry.

It will answer the key questions such as: What’s the best way to fund vehicles? What should the choice list look like? What are wholelife costs? What are the company’s legal responsibilities? Is more than one supplier best? To outsource or not to outsource? How to reduce fleet emissions? What’s the best way to pay for fuel? How best to insure fleet vehicles? What’s the best way to pay for maintenance?

Chairman of the Institute of Car Fleet Management, Paul Hollick (pictured) said: “We are delighted to support Fleet Management LIVE 2015 with a 45-minute session called Breakfast for Beginners aimed at those new to fleet who find themselves with responsibility for company vehicles as part of their job remit. In what we promise to be an interesting and lively interactive session, we will deliver some incisive advice on best fleet practice.

“Hopefully, it will encourage attendees to consider widening their knowledge further by working towards the ICFM’s Introductory Certificate in Car Fleet Management designed for those with less than six months’ experience of fleet.

“The Breakfast for Beginners will also provide insight into what the Institute has planned for those seeking to update their fleet management skills with the launch of a future series of ICFM fleet masterclasses tackling different hot topics in fleet from driving down fleet costs to duty of care management.”

Fleet Management Live will cover all aspects of company car management from projecting the future direction of cars, vehicle technology and fleet management to practical and hands-on guidance on effectively running a fleet in today’s ever-changing market.
