Sally Gunnell and Charley Boorman are new guest speakers at ‘Fleet 2020’ ICFM conference
The two replace original guest speaker Phil Tufnell, who had to pull out at the last minute due to BBC filming commitments.
Meanwhile Arval has been signed up as a new sixth secondary sponsor.
The ICFM conference takes place on Wednesday 21 October at the Williams Conference Centre, Grove, Oxfordshire and is hosted by headline sponsor PPG, leading coatings and speciality products and services company. Co-sponsoring the ICFM conference for a fourth successive year is FMG, the independent provider of fleet incident management and specialist vehicle recovery services. Secondary sponsors are Alphabet, Arval, BCA, Jaama, Rightsure and Thrifty.
In addition, panellists for the in-dialogue session ‘The Landscape Today – Fleet 2020’ include Robin Hayles, sustainable fuel development manager at Hyundai, speaking on fuel cell technology; Howard Cox, founder of FairFuelUK on fuel costs; Hugh Boyes of the University of Warwick, leading specialist on cyber security; and Ben Creswick, business development director at FMG, talking about technological advances in incident management.
In addition, there is a special presentation on developments in advanced engineering within F1 by Paul McNamara, technical director, at Williams Advanced Engineering.
Chairman of the ICFM, Paul Hollick commented: “As a not-for-profit education and training organisation, our awards presentation is an essential part of our conference and our awardees will be privileged to have their certificates presented to them by Charley Boorman.
“I believe that the 160 plus delegates so far registered are in for a real treat, especially as afterwards there will be tours of Sir Frank Williams' private Grand Prix Collection which houses more than 40 of the team's seminal race cars. It is the largest private collection of Formula 1 cars in the world, charting the team's 38-year F1 history.”
The annual national members’ conference will commence at 9.30am and finish at 3.30pm. ICFM members will be allowed to bring one guest with them free of charge.
Last minute registrations are still possible. ICFM members should complete the online booking form at www.icfm.com for their free attendance. The deadline for all registrations is Friday 16 October 2015.
