From a SAS medal-winner and a cyber security expert, to the world of Formula 1 and one of the country’s leading marketers - delegates attending the aptly entitled Showing the Way 2018 Fix Auto UK National Conference will not be disappointed as the network reveals its six-speaker line-up for this year’s event.

Floyd Woodrow, who at 22 was one of the youngest soldiers to be selected into the SAS before rising to the rank of Major and receiving the second-highest award for gallantry for his services while in Iraq as well as an MBE for his work in Afghanistan, will headline the event being held at St George’s Park near Burton-upon-Trent, on Thursday 18th October.

Since leaving the military, Floyd has become a successful author, businessman and lecturer and will deliver an enlightening piece aptly entitled ‘Finding Your Potential’. He will be followed by Jason Hart, double global award winning expert, visionary Cyber Security Expert and former Ethical Hacker, who regularly appears on TV around the world demonstrating real world examples on how hackers Hack and how business need to stay ahead of constant Cyber Security Risks.

Seasoned conference speaker Geoff Ramm who formed Celebrity Service and OMG Marketing will also be taking to the stage and provide delegates with a journey on how to deliver the ultimate customer experience through marketing. Marc Priestley, who spent a decade as a lead mechanic during McLaren F1’s race winning era has been recruited to reiterate the ‘Marginal Gains’ message while Thatcham’s Dean Lander and Harry Dhanjal, of Fix Auto World, complete the line-up, speaking on the Future of Cars and the Future Global Strategy of Fix Auto World respectively.

Perry McCarthy – the original ‘Stig’ racing driver for BBC’s Top Gear will once again host the event after proving to be a huge hit with delegates last year. For the Fix Auto Awards Dinner, guests will be entertained by comedian Ian Irving.

Ian Pugh, of Fix Auto UK, said: “We have once again managed to build an agenda of key speakers who individually, have track records of delivering entertaining but thought-provoking and educational lectures.  I know I am biased, but I for one cannot wait. We also have a record amount of supplier partners supporting us this year, including our Diamond Sponsor AkzoNobel and Platinum Sponsors Audetex and 3M. Without the support of our supplier partners, we wouldn’t be able to make this event happen.”

The 2018 event will also provide attendees the opportunity to participate in a social event of their choice on Wednesday, October 17, including golf, archery, laser combat, spa treatments and a football experience – St George’s Park is the home of the English FA after all!
