Preparing Cities for a Transportation Revolution

Trip convergence

We’d like to promote the above workshop series being delivered by Harmonize Mobility/ Trip Convergence, which may be of interest to you. View the event flyer here.

Transportation in our cities is on the verge of an extraordinary revolution. New ride services such as Uber are growing, while vehicle connectivity and automation technology are rapidly developing. But with rumours and speculation filling the air, city leaders and planners face a minefield of contradictory predictions and extraordinary promises for the future of transportation.

This New Mobility Workshop is designed to prepare city leaders, transportation and land use planners, entrepreneurs, future thinking citizens, and anyone who has responsibilities in transportation decision-making for significant coming changes to mobility. The focus of the workshop is on planning for both short and long-range evolutionary impacts of ride hailing, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), and vehicle automation from both general and local planning perspectives in order to prepare cities and communities for transformation.

The first workshop is in Auckland on 2 August 2018. Click here to read more and register.

Maximising Quality through Design Course

Quality is at the core of engineering design, but so is ensuring your designs meet health and safety requirements and good practice. If you’re looking to strengthen your techniques and tools to keep you at the forefront, then this course is for you.

This one-day course is designed for the solo operator or owner of a SME design consultancy, micro engineering businesses delivering design, advice and support services

The locations are: 

Auckland – 7th August

Whangarei – 8th August

Wellington – 16 August

Napier – 21st August

Ensuring compliance with health and safety requirements and properly assessing key risks involved in a design can be a taxing exercise for smaller businesses. We’ve developed this course to help identify ways to streamline the process.

  • three key steps to building an effective integrated management system for your small business
  • an introduction to the new structure of ISO management systems standards
  • an understanding of the key requirements of the ISO 9001/14001/45001 standards for suppliers of design services
