Pindar Creative Sponsor 'Travel Planner of the Year 2011' Award.
22 November 2011
Pindar Creative proudly announce they are to sponsor the ‘Travel Planner of the Year 2011' award at the ACT TravelWise Annual Conference on 25th November.
The ‘Travel Planner of the Year 2011' award is for an exceptional individual who has achieved great results. It is open to any travel planner in the UK, and can be awarded to an individual who works mainly with any of the following types of travel plan: workplace, personal, residential, leisure, stadia or station. There are many different ways in which individuals ‘do their bit' to develop travel plans across the country, so there are no definitive criteria on which we judge the awards, but we favour travel planners who have achieved results. The award may go to someone who works in a local authority, a business, a one person charity or a supplier of products and services to travel planners. Their contribution might be local, regional, national or all three. It's all about what the individual has managed to achieve in the past year, and the way in which they have gone about doing it.
Shortlisted candidates for the Travel Planner of the Year 2011 award are:
- Dawn Dewar University of East Anglia
- Dawn Wise - Welcome Trust, Genome Campus - Cambridge
- Darren Hall - Defence, Science and Technology Laboratory - Wiltshire
- Lynn Cramman - Cobalt Park - Newcastle upon Tyne
The winner will be announced at the Gala Lunch which is being held at the ACT TravelWise Annual Conference on the 25th November.
About the conference
The 2011 ACT TravelWise national conference, ‘The Challenges and Opportunities for Smarter Travel: LSTF or Bust?', will take place at the Nottingham Conference Centre, Nottingham on Friday 25th November 2011. Combining a demonstration of best practice with interactive training, this one-day event will showcase the opportunities for smarter choices created through the introduction of the Local Sustainable Transport Fund, but also through alternative funding sources. In doing so, speakers will highlight the challenges that lie ahead in delivering an ambitious programme of interventions. Speakers and workshop facilitators will guide delegates through alternative opportunities for funding smarter choices projects, either through European avenues or from innovative solutions such as releasing income from land and property.
