This is the web site for the Young Bus Managers' Network, originally founded in June 2008. The site contains news and information about the events organised by the Network.
The Young Bus Managers Network is a not-for-profit organisation helping the industry breed and encourage the next generation of great managers to take our businesses forward. Supported by the Chris Moyes Scholarship Trust, its Patrons are Roger French and James Freeman, who work alongside a committee of five young managers representing the plc groups and independent operators. The Young Bus Managers Network runs two conferences a year in the spring and autumn in a different location each time.
All young managers in the bus industry can register to attend, whether working for one of the big groups or an independent operator. The term 'young' is used loosely and there is no set limit as such, though most delegates will be in their 20s and some in their 30s.
Next conference in Portsmouth postponed to 13th and 14th October 2021
Currently we hope to run the postponed Portsmouth conference onWednesday 13th and Thursday 14th October 2021.
All delegates, and those that booked them, were e-mailed on Friday 4th September last with the new dates. All existing bookings have been transferred to the new dates and any changes can be made nearer the time. We hope to run a full programme along with the optional site visit, but please note that there may need to be some changes.
Online booking has not yet re-opened, so if you'd like to book, please get in touch to register your interest.
The postponed conference in Portsmouth will be held at the same venue - the Royal Beach Hotel, Southsea - which is easily accessible by bus, train and coach.
