Over 550 delegates joined us for two massive days of education and networking at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney this week.
This year’s conference delivered powerful, compelling, and thought-provoking presentations. Starting with a keynote from Steve Nuttall from ACA Research providing the audience with a sneak peek of the findings from our 2022 corporate fleet survey followed by speed dating session from eight vehicle manufacturers. We then strolled through several sustainability sessions incorporating strategy development, accessing funding to support your transition, hardware and software considerations and roadmaps for transition to low and zero emissions vehicles. Day one highlight new technology, discussed the development of industry comparative and benchmark reporting, whilst exploring safety and operational improvements.
Day two started with an off the cuff speech from Geotab’s Chief Customer Officer (Toronto, Canada) Colin Southerland on challenges and opportunities for global data, followed by Lisa Panarello’s keynote on executive presence, demonstrating once again, emotional intelligence is the ultimate key to success whilst enabling you to be the best version of yourself. The conference wrapped up with a session on managing change and influencing outcomes delivered by Hunter Shannonhouse from Scotwork Negotiations.
The 2022 Networking Dinner and Awards presentation on Tuesday evening was a huge success with over 470 people joining us. Their mission was simply, find out who the award winners were and help them celebrate, mission accomplished!
