Young Forwarders get motivated

[ July 22, 2019   //   ]

The British International Freight Association (BIFA)’s Young Forwarder Network (YFN) will host a free professional development event for members near Heathrow on 8 August.
Speaker and coach Rudee Bertie will provide insight on how members can increase their confidence and personal brand through better networking.
Bertie, has worked in freight forwarding, air cargo and customs brokerage for over 30 years and has acquired an extensive knowledge of the complex business of customs clearance and set-up his own company.
He will give attendees an array of practical tips to boost confidence, gained through personal experience – by having to push himself out of his comfort zone – as he has built-up his business through attending many networking events around the world.
Carl Hobbis, BIFA’s training development manager says: “During each of the initial launch events, participants were given an opportunity to discuss how they would like their regional groups to operate going forwards. Less formal events, easily accessible venues, engaging speakers, later start times were the common feedback themes.”
He added that all YFN regional groups are planning careers events to take place in Spring 2020 and all apprentice members of the YFN can get a 20% reduction in the cost of any BIFA training course.
