Princeton, NJ, September 21, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- As more and more corporations spread across the globe, fleet managers encounter unique situations and new problems to face. Running a fleet in multiple countries is not just about learning the laws in those regions or understanding one's financing options, it's about learning about each country's culture and history, knowing how businesses in the region function, and understanding how workers perceive "outsiders." NAFA Fleet Management Association is presenting its first-ever "Mastering International Fleet Management" seminar to help fleet managers get a better understanding of the challenges faced with managing a global fleet.
The seminar will take place November 1-3, 2011 at the Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa in Jupiter, FL. Registration is $799 for NAFA Members and Affiliates; $1,299 for Non-Members and Non-Affiliates. Additional registrants from the same employer can attend for half price.
NAFA's "Mastering International Fleet Management" seminar is an intense three-day look at the complexities of running a multi-national fleet. The seminar begins by discussing a real-life case study during an opening cocktail reception on Tuesday night, and ends Thursday with attendees working hand-in-hand with other fleet managers to resolve the issue. In between, attendees will learn about the intricacies of developing and implementing fleet policies in numerous regions, understanding the components of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in various countries, and the impact of environmental issues on decision-making.
Registration is limited due to the seminar's unique hands-on case study participation.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn from expert fleet professionals who have decades of international fleet experience. Speakers Hans Damen, Managing Partner of FleetVision, and Peter Egan, Partner in FleetVision, will show the importance of company cars outside of North America; help fleet managers identify ways to get their counterparts in other countries on the same page; help attendees establish "best practice" levels within all areas of fleet; and highlight reliable sources of benchmarking data while pinpointing the best types of data to capture in order to enable meaningful analysis of your international operations. During three days of invaluable networking time, colleagues will share experiences and work together to resolve the case study scenarios.
Attendees will receive an exclusive International Fleet Toolkit, tip sheets on how to avoid common initial mistakes, and a comprehensive checklist of tasks and items to consider regarding their global fleet. In addition, attendees will be given the results of NAFA's first-ever Global Fleet Operations survey. This exclusive data will help fleet managers learn how their operations measure up against their peers, allow them to see what policies and procedures others have in place, and provide ways to help better organize their own operations.
