Following on from its successful 2018 Conference and Awards, Talent in Logistics has announced that a Steering Group of leading industry experts will help drive the event forward for 2019.
Talent in Logistics 2019 will held on 27th June at Arena MK in Milton Keynes and will again incorporate a Conference and Awards event dedicated to skills and development in the warehousing, logistics and transport sectors.
The Steering Committee will work alongside the event organisers to help ensure that the interests of the industry are represented and that both the Conference and Awards offer the maximum benefit to attendees.
Confirmed members of the Talent in Logistics Steering Committee include representatives from BITA (British Industrial Truck Association), CILT UK (The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport), Handling & Storage Solutions Magazine, Kuehne + Nagel, and RHA (Road Haulage Association).
Freight Industry Times will be a participating member of the Committee and its editor Anthony Woodburn, outlined the essential role played by Talent in Logistics. He said: “More than half a million workers will be required to support our growing industry over the next few years. Now, with Brexit and the ramifications of leaving the EU, skills and development initiatives such as Talent in Logistics are going to be even more important to showcase best practice and spread the message of opportunity that exists in the sector.”
The Steering Group’s inaugural meeting will take place during August to start the process of deciding the key topics of interest and relevance for the 2019 conference and ensure that the agenda complements the industry’s skills agenda and helps tackle its challenges.
The Group will also consider ways that Talent in Logistics may be able to support other skills initiatives in the wider industry.
Talent in Logistics has also confirmed that the 2019 Awards will also be evolving to recognise a wider range of topics related to skills, talent, recruitment and retention. Alongside a continued focus on training and instruction, new awards are expected to cover employee engagement, learning and development, diversity and inclusion.
Entry for the Awards will open in January.
