Opinion

High time to be courageous

The proverb says ‘In teaching others, we teach ourselves’ and it's true. Instead of making one weak, sharing knowledge shows strength, leadership and intelligence – traits utterly embodied by previous winners at the Fleet Europe Awards. Although it's not easy to put yourself forward for a Fleet Europe Award – and have your work on full display in front of industry peers and the trained eyes of expert judges – courage, strength and confidence are the traits of a leader, and we reward leaders.

A great place to view and swap case studies, insights and best-practice tips in international car fleet management, the thinking fleet manager knows the Fleet Europe Awards – even if you don't take home a prize – offer a real window into the best of the industry, and the chance to go back to work pulsing with ideas; ready to take your fleet to the next level. 

The Fleet Europe Awards – held in Hamburg on 19 November 2014 – is the best opportunity for international fleet professionals to get the recognition they deserve.
