Breakout sessions

On both summit days, attendees can select one of a series of intereactive breakout sessions on the following topics:

Getting your funding strategy right in Asia: Misconceptions around buying vs leasing explained

With Jeremy Cleary, Regional CCO South East Asia at ALD MUL Mobility Services

The cost of finance in a changing APAC economy

With Bei Xu, Asia Economist, Société Générale

How new powertrains contribute to fleet electrification strategy

With Nissan Motor

Innovative but successful fleet sourcing strategies for APAC

With Ivor Johnson, Regional Fleet Director, Pfizer

The APAC Fleet Landscape and the importance of sub-regional identities

With Yves Helven, APAC Expert, Global Fleet and Nachiket Anavekar, Regional Head Facilities APAC & China, Syngenta

In a series of sessions, we establish a baseline of the complex fleet ecosystem in APAC, where the supply chain operates locally rather than regionally, and where negotiating regional agreements remains a challenge. APAC is a vast and highly complex region with as many identities as there are countries. Dividing your various local fleets into manageable and “bite-size” groups makes therefore a lot of sense from various perspectives: policy, sourcing and fleet management, control.

Getting your funding strategy right in Asia

With Jeremy Cleary, Regional Chief Commercial Officer South East Asia, ALD MUL Mobility Services, Bei Xu, Asia Economist, Société Générale and Yit Ming Ng, Regional Procurement Manager Asia Oceania Africa, Nestlé Group

In contrast to more mature markets in Europe and North America, vehicle leasing is not the norm for corporates in the Asia Pacific region. There is, however, a gradual shift in mentality, with corporates and consumers looking for greater flexibility and ease of use over ownership. Nevertheless, differences in market maturity come with differences in economic pace. It is vital to adjust regional expectations to local realities and practicalities.

Fleet & Mobility Experiences and Expectations

With David Staples, Regional Category Manager Travel & Fleet APAC, Roche, Huub Smeets, Global Fleet Manager, Philip Morris International and Timothy Tang, Regional PROC Manager – Enabling Functions, Bayer

In this debate session, global and APAC fleet managers are sharing their success stories and less successful experiences in developing, implementing, and managing fleets across APAC.

How new powertrains and technology contribute to fleet electrification strategy

With Pradeep Pandey, General Manager in Sales & Strategic Projects, Nissan Motor Thailand Ltd

Ensuring customer satisfaction by managing fleet and mobility expectations in APAC

Debate with Luke Downen, Acting General Manager, Global Corporate Sales / Residual Value, Fleet, Remarketing & Used Car, in Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., Sujit Reddy, General Manager, ALD MUL and Deepak Kadambi, General Manager South East Asia, Geotab
