The 2019 ICFM Annual Members’ Conference, entitled ‘Fleet resilience - Managing Uncertainty in the Current Climate’, will be held on Tuesday, May 21, at Wembley Stadium in London.
Experts from different organisations working with and advising fleets, including Government, will focus on providing advice and information as the UK faces up to Brexit, a possible general election and numerous issues that directly impact on vehicle operations including, future company car benefit-in-kind tax changes, the introduction of Clean Air Zones and a plug-in and ultra-low emission future.
Confirmed speakers include: Nick Molden, founder and chief executive, Emission Analytics; Harvey Perkins, partner, Gunnercooke Consulting; Josey Wardle, infrastructure manager, Zero Carbon Futures; Jon Hunt, manager alternative fuels, Toyota (GB); Dominic Phinn, business engagement coordinator, ClientEarth; Phil Killingley, deputy head of the Government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles; and Justin Patterson, head of fleet operations, Addison Lee.
Conference celebrity guest speaker will be one of the UK’s best known football commentators, John Motson, who will give an insight into his long career.
The event will also include the presentation of awards to fleet decision-makers that have successfully completed ICFM training courses in the past 12 months.
ICFM director Peter Eldridge said: “The conference focus this year is firmly on providing fleet operators with an insight into making the right strategic decisions in what is proving to be perhaps the most challenging period in fleet history.
“The evolution of the fleet sector is becoming ever more rapid and without the skills that ICFM training provides, and the ability to quiz industry experts at the annual ICFM Conference, fleet decision-makers could find themselves making poor decisions that will impact on the operating efficiency and effectiveness of their vehicles and businesses.
“Conference speakers will tackle a plethora of major issues that confront fleet decision-makers providing insight to ensure company car and commercial vehicle operations remain cost-effective and operationally efficient.”
Sponsored by Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solution and Sytner Group, the Conference is also supported by fleet suppliers: AX, Epyx, Jaama, Selsia Vehicle Accident Centres and TMC (The Miles Consultancy).
ICFM members, who may also take a guest who has an interest in fleet, can book their free conference place via the ICFM website - www.icfm.com.
The conference will commence at 9.30am (registration from 8.30am) and finish at 3.45pm.
