And it’s a 24/7 operation powered by over 250 committed colleagues.

Our guest speaker is Elaine Sullivan. Elaine seeks to help businesses and organisations to look to their policy of diversity and inclusion, be pragmatic in their approach, and ensure that every employee is treated as an individual rather than a tick-box exercise. She has a true passion for researching the key aspects of diversity and the amazing shift that an inclusive approach can create for a business.

Joined up Journeys - Integration and Interchange: making travel workable for disabled and older peopleBook Now
Start Date:10/04/2018 10:30
End Date:10/04/2018 15:45
Event Code:AIF0308

When: Tuesday 10th April from 10:00 for 10:30 - 15:45 hrs
Where: Accessible Transport Group, 80 Park Road, Aston, Birmingham B6 5PL (Map)

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Kevin Richardson FCILT, Chief Executive, The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport 
  • Alastair Somerville, Director, Acuity Design
  • Ann Bates, Transport Access Advisor, Lead PRM member on Gatwick Passenger Advisory Group & member of GTR Access Advisory Board
  • David Bermingham FCILT, Chief Executive, Accessible Transport Group

The concept of transport chains makes clear that, where any link in the journey chain is missing or broken, it can prevent a person from travelling.

Changing between modes or making any kind of travel connection can be stressful and daunting for all of us. For many disabled and older people, it is often simply impossible because of lack of appropriate infrastructure and support, combined with the unreliability of services.

Planning and good practice in areas as diverse as timetabling, signage, ticketing, physical infrastructure and co-operation between providers, all play a vital part in joining the chain and making journeys achievable. As do first mile/last mile considerations, real time information, communication between services, sheltered travel hubs and buddying services.

This one-day seminar will explore the concerns and difficulties faced by disabled and older people and will look at practical solutions and examples of good practice to achieve joined up journeys.

A draft of the programme is available here.

A limited bus shuttle service will be available to delegates arriving at Birmingham’s New Street Station. Departure times will be communicated prior to the event once final delegate numbers are confirmed but it is likely a bus will be waiting from around 9:30 am to depart at 9:50 am. Should you require this service, please head towards the Station Street exit and wait at the 2nd bus stop opposite the Electric Theatre.

Refreshments and a lunch buffet will be provided.  Last year's seminar was oversubscribed. Delegates are therefore advised to book early!

Centenary of the RAFBook Now
Start Date:10/04/2018 18:30
End Date:10/04/2018 20:00

Where: Holiday Inn, Sipson Road, West Drayton, UB7 0JU
Meeting Point: Reception

Speaker: Professor Lester Hillman, AE

The King's Cross aerodrome that never was, RAF St Pancras, balloons, aerial railways two centuries ago, Richard Hannay and the 39 steps: all this and more will be explored in a richly illustrated aviation heritage tribute. With the April centennial of the Royal Air Force 1918-2018 and the new make-over at RAF Hendon, the timing could hardly be better.

Six decades ago our speaker was protecting the Cold War skies over North London flying RAF airframes as a schoolboy out of Hendon. He has led on a number of initiatives there including VC commemorations (2011) and events associated with "An Enduring Relationship", a recent RAF and RAF of Oman exhibition (2014-2017).  In May he delivered the Edinburgh Philosophical Institute Annual Lecture on aviation heritage in literature and he has written and lectured elsewhere on transport. He was conferred a Visiting Professorship at London Metropolitan University 2008 and continues to hold other professional appointments.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.
