Speaker: Rob Hunter, Sector Head – Retail & Supply Chain, Blue Arrow
Rob will be talking to the group about the future of the world of work and will be covering the following points: • Attraction & motivation • The World is temporary • Enhancing people's lives
The Supply Chain Network has been running since September 2004. It was set up as a networking and learning opportunity for people working within the supply chain in retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers. The group numbers about 50 people, with 20 typically at any one meeting. We meet about every six weeks or so in a pub in central London. Networking normally starts from 6pm onwards with snacks at 18:30 and the 'formal' presentation from 19:00, with more networking afterwards. We aim to have a mix of 'experts' and presentations from within the group. The environment is very informal. The objective is discussion rather than a formal presenter at the front, with presenters encouraged to bring issues as well as experience.
We sometimes have spare spaces, so if you're interested in joining us, please contact Kirsten Tisdale here - put Supply Chain Network in the comments box.
A light buffet will also be provided.

Any data-led transport project will require the use of statistical and other mathematical techniques at some stage, whether this be in determining the scale of a perceived problem, establishing how much data to collect, analysing data, dealing with problems in data sets, or when undertaking before and after monitoring. This one day course equips delegate with working knowledge of the statistical techniques that should be applied at different stages in projects to ensure that the evidence base underlying decisions is robust. Packed with hands on exercises, and supported by useful reference material, this one day course is a must for anyone wishing to increase their confidence in practical mathematics.

Without substantial investment, the UK will experience severe congestion across its transport infrastructure over the coming decades. The 'Travel in Britain in 2035' study from the RAND Corporation explores future travel scenarios and their implications for technology and innovation. It considers whether emerging technologies will be able to address congestion problems by using capacity more efficiently, supporting different mode choices, and managing or reducing travel demand.
The RTPI, TPS and CILT are now inviting Charlene Rohr, senior reseacher leader at RAND Europe and co-author of the study, to a free evening panel discussion in London. She will be joined by a number of other speakers to discuss the wider relationship between transport, technology and land-use planning.
Other confirmed speakers include:
Venue: De Vere Holborn Bars, 138-142 Holborn, London, EC1N 2NQ
Please arrive at 17.45 for a 18.15 start.

This one-day course will highlight common mistakes that can occur during the planning and design of bus interchanges and infrastructure. Exploring issues that may at first appear minor, but if not identified and addressed early can result in challenging and costly remedial work during the construction and post opening phases of the project. Many of these design issues occur because the designers or those approving the design may lack the specialist knowledge of bus interchange requirements, vehicle manoeuvrability and transport operations. Taught through practical examples and case studies, the course will provide an introduction to the topic, allowing potential issues to be recognised and removed at the design stage enabling costly and time consuming issues to be avoided.

The modelling of junctions, road networks and public transport systems provides fundamental information to support decisions taken on future land uses, investment in the transport system and other policy interventions. With modelling tools ranging from “simple” equations through to highly complex mathematical, algorithm based systems, many people responsible for commissioning modelling activities find modelling a daunting area of responsibility. This course provides an introduction to the modelling tools commonly used, providing delegates with an understanding of the applicability of different models to various situations, and equips practitioners with simple techniques for checking model outputs.

Traffic Orders are an essential requirement for just about every enforceable restriction that applies to the highway, and will be required for the construction and operation of many transport infrastructure schemes. This course provides delegates with an understanding of the formal stages involved in making different types of Traffic Order, and will offer valuable insight into the process for creating these legal documents. Delegates coming from Highway and Traffic Engineering, Parking Management, Reps and Appeals Management and Project Management backgrounds will find this course directly relevant to their work and it will also be valuable for people managing teams of these specialists. The format of the course includes group work and case studies covering the format, interpretation and use of traffic orders, and it delivered by a leading Traffic Order practitioner.
