New South Wales Professional Development Forums

The Australasian Fleet Management Association organises a Professional Development Forum program for New South Wales throughout 2017. This event kicks off with breakfast and follows with discussions on topics chosen by the Chapter Committee based on members needs. They are an ideal way of staying abreast of topical issues, networking with fellow fleet managers, connecting with potential clients, entertaining and reaffirming existing clients or taking the first step in discovering what it is like to be an AfMA Member. We encourage you to contact the office if you have any questions about this event.

Who Should Attend
Fleet managers, fleet coordinators, fleet administrators and any individual working to manage an organisations vehicles. You should also bring your upper management team, so they'll be aware of the issues you face and need to plan for in the future.
 

Topic 1

Come and hear what is happening on another front of Renewable Propulsion 

Presented by: Attilio Pigneri

Attlilio, the Italian Master of energy engineering and founder of specialist hydrogen infrastructure company H2U, will get down to brass tacks on the new era of vehicle propulsion hardware and the most abundant energy source in the universe. The stuff that is about to tip the scales for renewable energy.
Moreland City Council’s project efforts now is its heavy fleet, particularly the waste collection fleet, where 18 trucks out of a total fleet exceeding 300 vehicles account for over 50% of fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).
After investigating alternative drivetrains and fuelling technologies, Moreland has reached the conclusion that fuel-cell electric vehicles (FCEV), powered by renewable hydrogen provide a truly zero-emission solution, with no compromises in terms of power capability, significantly reduced noise, and with the possibility of increased payload.

Topic 2

Effective Driver Safety Communication: We’re Not All Born to Teach 

Presented by: John Cadogan

Road safety messages have become turns of phrase, expressions, even unanswered rhetoric.
John Cadogan, motoring journalist, broadcaster and mechanical engineer from AutoExpert.com.au with a vendetta for political correctness, knows how to translate road safety jargon into palatable real-world communication and tactics that can not only help save the lives of your valued drivers, but explain how the simplest of changes can benefit all.
Cadoges will share his unabashed, unbiased expertise on this crucial topic because fleet managers are burdened with disproportionate responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of their drivers, but are not always in the best position to successfully reach and teach them.
