A keynote presentation by the new executive director of PACTS promises to be one of the highlights of the third annual MAST conference in February 2013.
The conference will be held at Dunchurch Park Hotel near Rugby on 5 February and is expected to attract around 100 road safety professionals from varying backgrounds.
David Davies, PACTS’ new executive director, will present a keynote address titled ‘Using Evidence to Influence Decision Makers’. The presentation will look at how road safety professionals can present facts in an effective manner to those who make important policy and budgetary decisions.
As well as the usual ‘bite-size’ problem solving talks by Bruce Walton, MAST project manager, discussions will also look at how an entire campaign can be planned using the evidence available, and how to effectively evaluate interventions.
The popular ‘quick-fire’ session will once again be a feature of the conference, with a series of swift presentations from MAST members designed to share best practice and highlight local and regional trends in casualty reduction.
MAST member organisation can send one delegate free of charge. For additional MAST member delegates, and delegates from non-member organisations, the fee is £65, subject to availability. The cut off date for bookings is 25 January.
