Next Monday, we’ll be joining hundreds of driving instructors in Worcester for the much anticipated Fresh Start Conference.

The annual event is one of the highlights in the driving instructor calendar. It’s a chance to network with colleagues, see the latest products and services on offer in the trade exhibition and learn best practice in the workshops.

“I’ve been working for Hitachi Capital for six months and I’ve already been to some events including Fresh Insights. This time around I’ll be attending the pre-conference evening event too so I’m really looking forward to getting to know more about driving instructors in a more informal setting,” said digital marketing officer, Jemma Redden.

During the pre-conference event on Sunday, 23 February, the Golden L Award winners will be announced.

We’re pleased to be sponsoring the category for best local driving instructor association.

Jemma said: “It’s a privilege to be able to support the award which recognises all the good in our industry. Local associations are a vital source of support for driving instructors who are effectively lone workers. Having a group you can call on for advice or just to talk to is so important. Good luck to the three finalist associations from Leeds, Southern and North Avon.”

If you’re attending the conference on Monday, 24 February at the Sixways Stadium in Worcester don’t forget to stop by our stand and chat to Jemma and James.
