Pair of Canadian Olympic Champions Deliver Keynote Presentations to Western Fleet Professionals
ARI recently hosted its Western Canadian fleet forums in Calgary and Vancouver. All told, over 160 fleet professionals attended the events with a theme of Best in Fleet.
“ARI greatly values the opportunity to host these events on an annual basis,” says Tim Stephens, Director of Western Zone Sales at ARI. “The fleet forums are all about education, collaboration and networking among industry leaders, and they provide another important channel of communication between ARI and our clients.”
Charlie Guthro, VP of North American Fleet Management at ARI, unveiled the new ARI Fleet Health Card – a tool that provides fleet managers with live, actionable fleet data using predictive analytics combined with a ranking and rating methodology.
In Vancouver, Peter Nogalo, Marketing Manager at ARI, presented research on changes to Canada’s cannabis laws and their impact on fleet, including safety, policy and HR. ARI’s District Sales Manager, Sara Church, led a discussion on the challenges fleet managers face on a daily basis and mentioned tools available to help overcome them. The keynote address was given by Josh Dueck, Canadian Paralympic Gold Medalist, who shared an inspiring message of hope and perseverance in the face of adversity.
At the Calgary event, ARI’s manufacturer partners showcased their leading models and features as part of a Best in Fleet vehicle expo. Lew Davis, Manager of Fleet Safety and Compliance at Robert B. Somerville Co. Ltd, shared the positive impact of implementing ARI’s Garage Management System and telematics devices for the Somerville fleet, as part of a panel discussion. Canadian Olympic Hero, Catriona LeMay Doan, concluded the morning’s events with a motivating keynote on what it means to be “Your Best.”
ARI’s final fleet forum of 2016 will be held in Montreal on September 27th and registration will be opening soon for this event. For more information on how to participate, contact ARI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
