Kevin Richardson to address FORS Members’ Conference

Published:  27 September, 2017

Kevin Richardson, chief executive of Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), will deliver a keynote address at the second FORS members’ conference, looking at the social obligations placed on fleets and the ethical, moral and commercial values organisations must consider for the good of all stakeholders.

The speech, entitled called Compliance, what does it mean to you? will tie in to the conference theme of legal, contractual and FORS compliance.

Delegates will be encouraged to review how their business tackles compliance issues and manages them on a daily basis.

Taking place on Tuesday 17 October 2017 in Birmingham, the conference is free to attend for FORS members and will be chaired by Brian Weatherley, former editor-in-chief of Commercial Motor and Truck and Driver magazines.

More than 350 delegates are expected to attend and they will hear from a wide variety of speakers, including representatives from major organisations who specify FORS and FORS operators. Delegates will also have the opportunity to book a one-to-one slot with FORS experts.

‘Delegates will have a better understanding of how the FORS Compliance Team monitor and manage breaches of the FORS Standard, the FORS Terms and Conditions, and what procedures will be undertaken,’ said John Hix, FORS Concession Director.

The conference will also have an exhibition of FORS Associates running alongside, talking to attendees about the exclusive discounts and offers available to FORS members.
