Following RAIL’s successful Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail webinar series in 2021, and then the Reimagining & Rebooting our Railway webinar programme earlier this year, RAIL is launching a new three-part series, commencing on October 25.
With a focus on Great British Railways (GBR) and its mission to create a simpler, better railway for everyone, the webinars will be supported by the Rail Safety and Standards Board, Trainline, Independent Rail Retailers and Atkins, with other sponsors to be confirmed.
A key plank of the Government’s rail reform package, the creation of GBR represents the largest structural change to the industry since privatisation.
The webinar series will be chaired once again by RAIL Managing Editor and Events Director Nigel Harris.
Speakers for this first episode will include:
■ Stewart Fox-Mills, Director of Fares, Ticketing & Retail, GBRTT.
■ Mike Brown CBE MVO, Chairman, RSSB.
■ Alistair Lees, Chairman, Independent Rail Retailers.
■ Martijn Gilbert, Managing Director, Lumo and Hull Trains.
Registration to attend the October 25 webinar and future episodes is free. Webinars will also be available to watch on-demand after they have aired live.
Episode Two (Placemaking and Rail’s Role as a Social and Economic Driver) is due to take place on November 15. Episode Three (The Future Role of the Private Sector) is scheduled to follow on December 13.
■ For further details on all three episodes and for registration details, please see RAIL 967 or look for updates on the RAIL website.
