Bookings for Transport Manager Series already "smashes 500 mark"
Sponsored by tyre manufacturer Goodyear and one of the worlds’ leading energy providers Shell, the theme of this year’s series of seminars is “be prepared”. However, even the leading trade body wasn’t expecting to have smashed the 500 barrier so soon in its campaign.
Pippa Attwood, director of Membership, Marketing and Communications, said: ‘We were confident we had a very strong line up of speakers and topics for Transport Manager 2011, and as our booking numbers already suggest this view seems to be shared by industry.
'Clearly, there are some very real challenges facing transport managers from high fuel prices and extreme winter weather to the legal framework within which they operate; Transport Manager 2011 will help them fill in any gaps in their knowledge and arm them with the latest best practice guidance.’
The FTA’s autumn series of Transport Manager Seminars takes place across the UK from September to November. Expert speakers from organisations such as VOSA, the Highways Agency and Backhouse Jones Solicitors, as well as the FTA Member Advice Centre and other key FTA staff, will advise delegates on the very latest legislation, and how to keep their operation at the forefront of best practice and compliance procedures.
The price for FTA members is £325 plus VAT for the first delegate and £275 plus VAT for subsequent delegates; the cost for non-members is £385 plus VAT for the first delegate and £345 plus VAT for subsequent delegates.
