ingenie to sponsor Young Driver Focus 2015
ingenie has been unveiled as the main sponsor of Young Driver Focus 2015, and Richard King, ingenie CEO, will deliver a keynote presentation at the event.
Young Driver Focus*, jointly organised by Road Safety GB & FirstCar, will be held at the RAC Club in central London on 15 April, courtesy of the RAC Foundation. With a capacity of 150 delegates the conference was fully subscribed more than a month prior to it taking place.
In a little over three years since formation, ingenie has disrupted the market and established itself as one of the leading insurance brands for young drivers.
ingenie is all about helping young people become better, safer drivers. By fitting a black box in the car, ingenie builds a picture of its customers’ unique driving styles so they can be treated as individuals and earn discounts for good driving.
ingenie provides regular driving feedback – including speed, acceleration, braking and cornering – both online and through the ingenie app. Customers can keep an eye on how they are driving and how much they are on track to save. Put simply, the concept is 'drive well, pay less'.
Since founding ingenie, Richard King has become passionate about road safety and is a regular TV and social media contributor on the issue.
Richard will use his presentation to give an overview of the positive impact of telematics within ingenie’s community of young drivers, evidence of which was revealed in its recent Young Driver Report. He will also discuss what it will take for the growth of telematics to continue, and what the future holds in terms of Government support.
Young Driver Focus 2015*
The conference comprises four sessions looking at young driver research and interventions, the use of telematics to influence driving behaviour, and the driver training process – plus an expert panel discussion session.
The conference will open with an address by HRH Prince Michael of Kent GCVO and the speaker line up includes: professor Stephen Stradling (Edinburgh Napier University), Michael McDonnell (Road Safety Scotland), Richard King (ingenie), Ian Edwards (eDriving Solutions) and Dr Shaun Helman (TRL).
Although the event is fully subscribed, anyone who would like to attend can complete the booking form and will be offered a place in the event of a cancellation.
New website includes members’ portal and info on training courses etc
