Highways England and the National Police Chiefs’ Council are the first two organisations to confirm their speakers in ‘the big picture’ session at Young Rider Focus 2019.
Organised by Road Safety GB and FirstBike, and the team behind the established Young Driver Focus conference, Young Rider Focus will be held in Birmingham on 6 March 2019.
The conference agenda is taking shape, with 14 speakers and 12 presentations now confirmed.
The big picture will comprise a series of presentations in which major key organisations will outline their ideas and initiatives to help reduce collisions and casualties involving young powered two wheeler riders.
Highways England will be represented by Kathrine Wilson-Ellis, senior strategic programme manager – road safety, who leads on a number of projects including delivery of Highway England’s recently launched Motorcycle Safety and Transport Policy Framework.
Kathy also chairs the National Motorcycle and Towing Working Groups, which are tasked with reducing the number of incidents that occur on the Strategic Road Network..
Her presentation will cover the work that Highways England and its partners are delivering to improve motorcycle safety on the road network.
Chief constable Nick Adderley from Northamptonshire Police will speak on behalf of National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC).
Nick Adderley joined the police service in 1992 following a successful career in the Royal Navy. Since then, he has worked for police forces in Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Staffordshire – as well as the Home Office.
In July 2018 he assumed his current post of chief constable of Northamptonshire Police.
CC Adderley is also the NPCC lead for disclosure and safeguarding – as well as police motorcycling and the criminal use of motorcycles.
