Why You Can’t Miss Talent in Logistics 2018

We know you’re busy, but if you’re going to dedicate just one day this year to your professional development, make sure you spend it at the Talent in Logistics Conference 2018.

Our comprehensive Talent in Logistics 2018 conference agenda covers the important issues facing Transport, Warehouse, HR and Training Managers, as well as Forklift and LGV Instructors.

If you want to tackle the main challenges around recruitment, safety, training and funding within our industry, here’s why you must not miss the Talent in Logistics conference:

  1. Our seminars are relevant to you and your business

Whether you’re a Manager or an Instructor in transport, warehousing or logistics, our seminars give you the chance to learn new skills and knowledge that will truly benefit your business and offer a real return on investment.

Our expert speakers will be talking about relevant topics that matter to you. For example, David Lynch, Managing Director, Bis Henderson Academy will help you understand how the Apprenticeship Levy affects your business and how to use it to the greatest effect, while leading psychologist Adrian Furnham will deliver a presentation on the psychology behind attracting individuals from diverse and under-represented groups to careers in the transport, warehousing and logistics sector.

  1. Panel discussions and debates will cover hot topics

Thought provoking panel discussions and debates are also included in the agenda so that you can hear from industry leaders and governing bodies about the current issues facing the industry, as well as having chance to ask questions of your own.

One debate will address what Brexit will mean for training regulation in warehousing, transport and logistics, while our discussion panels will ask ‘Why aren’t young people attracted to working in logistics?’ and ‘Automation – What training is needed for future logistics?’.

  1. You will learn new skills

With an agenda specially developed for professionals like you, the Talent in Logistics Conference provides numerous ways for you to learn new skills and knowledge.  Best of all, you’ll receive practical advice that you can take away and use to make a measurable difference to your company.

And it’s not just conference sessions you’ll benefit from.  Live demonstrations on the day will include pre-use forklift checks and a walk around LGV check – both essential for safer logistics operations.

  1. CILT UK will award you 3 hours CPD

We know that there is a lack of quality, relevant Continued Professional Development for those working in training and L&D in the logistics and transport industry.  That’s why our conference agenda focuses specifically on the key issues that face professionals like you.

What’s more, because the conference provides such a relevant professional development opportunity, if you are a member of CILT UK, you will be awarded three hours of CPD for attending.

  1. It’s a golden opportunity for networking

Throughout the day there will be valuable chances to network with your industry peers, whether that is in between sessions or during lunch, and discuss and share your common challenges. However, for focused networking with reputable suppliers, and potential customers, conference delegates can also visit the Information Zone at the event.

This exhibition area is open throughout the day so that you can drop in to discuss your equipment, training and recruitment needs, and more!  Exhibitors include top names from our industry such as Linde Sterling UK Ltd, Indeed, Continental Tyres, Career Ready, Fiolean, Newcroft Training, Advance Logistics Support, FLT Training Liverpool, Westbrook Industrial and West Thames College – more to be announced soon!

  1. You can support talented Forklift Operators and Instructors

The Talent in Logistics Conference hosts the exciting Grand Finals of both the 2018 Forklift Operator of the Year, sponsored by UniCarriers UK Ltd, and the Forklift Instructor of the Year.  Both live competitions will feature trucks completing challenges using equipment from event supporter B&B Attachments.

The contests allow the best of the best from across the UK and Ireland to show why materials handling equipment instruction and operation is so important for safe, efficient logistics operations.

What better way to show that you support the future of talent within our industry than by supporting our skilled finalists?

The winners of both forklift competitions will be announced at the Talent in Logistics Awards, taking place at the Telford International Centre after the conference.  At the black-tie event, winners of all the Talent in Logistics Awards will be revealed, celebrating and recognising valuable talent throughout the supply chain, from apprentices and drivers, to training providers and managers who are inspiring and mentoring leaders of the future.
