Technical Report Writing - LondonBOOK NOW
21/11/2018 09:00:00 - 21/11/2018 17:00:00
All too often, the impact of many hours of work can hinge on the ability to explain the results effectively to others. Many professionals lack confidence in their report-writing skills, and feel that their credibility suffers because their written reports are not a fair reflection of their expertise. Anyone involved in technical work will quickly discover the challenges presented when trying to communicate their ideas, information, proposals or recommendations to colleagues and clients.

Executive summaries are increasingly important: they make an initial impact, particularly on senior decision makers or management, and may be used by readers who will never need the full report.

The course includes discussion of how to write an effective and engaging summary and the opportunity to put ideas into practice.

Mobile Data and Transport Planning - BirminghamBOOK NOW
15/01/2019 09:00:00 - 15/01/2019 17:00:00
Mobile Network Data can provide a valuable data source to transportation projects and provide a wealth of information insights relating to user trips and user behaviour. It has benefits over existing data collection sources due to its sample size, geographic extent and the ability to request data over a defined time period over the last two years. Mobile Network Data has been successfully applied to transport projects, often for input into Origin-Destination matrices, providing a detailed breakdown of origin-destination trips, trip purpose, trip frequency, route and mode.

This course provides an introduction to the mobile technology and how data is processed in order to provide insight to the transportation industry. Alongside this, the course will provide a summary of uses cases and summarise the benefits and limitations of this data source.

In the Plan, affected local authorities must produce an initial air quality management plan by the end of March 2018, and final places by December 2018 - A challenging ask!

Construction Management Plans - BirminghamBOOK NOW
17/04/2019 09:00:00 - 17/04/2019 17:00:00
The Construction Management Plan (CMP) tool has been established as a key tool for managing traffic impact of new development while it is in the build phases. However, with increasing pressure to manage out unnecessary traffic from urban centres and sensitive rural locations, combined with the advocacy of Clear Zones and other environmental restrictions, the creation of SMART CMPs is even more important.

This course looks at the role of construction management and logistics plans to creatively manage down delivery and other freight traffic without compromising the build process and ensuring that the solutions are affordable and efficient. Dovetailing of CMPs with wider supply chain practices and business planning are key aspects which both developers and urban planners needs to address in the shaping and delivery of the CMP. This course will examine some of the best practice already established in this field, and provide a clear structure and process for helping effective CMPs to be assembled, delivered and monitored.

Business Engagement and Travel Planning - LondonBOOK NOW
24/04/2019 09:00:00 - 24/04/2019 17:00:00


From reducing congestion and solo car use, to making the workforce healthier and happier, promoting good leadership in the community, making business cost savings, improving accessibility to work sites to lowering CO2 emissions… travel plans offer such a wide range of benefits that many local authorities have developed travel planning programmes that cover not only the workplace situation, but also schools, residential areas, zonal areas and even individuals. Whilst they are undoubtedly an effective tool for securing outcomes from the development planning process, are travel plans the best way of engaging the business community?

This one day course explores the motivational factors behind workplace engagement in behavioural change programmes, equipping practitioners with a tried and tested toolkit for use in developing their own engagement programmes.
