So 2020 hasn’t been the best year for local business but the power of networking is an amazing resource. Having decided to utilise this resource to develop ST&L Consultancy’s visibility within the local areas I met another MK Chamber member Tim Lee of CollaborateMK and through him I met Ben Peters of Roadwise who is a Northampton C of C member. The two of us got talking as you do and realised there was a synergy between our businesses so we sat , drank coffee and pondered.
We had a light bulb moment where we realised that what MK and the local area needed was a centralised support network for the transport industry which could be reached through a single point of contact…. operator compliance audits , operator systems management, vehicle telematics, fleet data analysis , vehicle leasing , commercial insurance , driver training etc etc etc
We then reached out to Chris Raubach of Bond Vehicle Leasing and Paul Foster and Mark Lowery of Coversure Insurance and Mike Hayward of Woodfines Solicitors and after some more talking , more coffee and the occasional beer…..MKTP was formed.
The vision is to promote and encourage cleaner , environmentally friendly and safer roads , enthuse the next generation to start a career within transport and help raise awareness of important issues such as mental health awareness and recycling as well as offering support and advise for the operation and management of a commercial fleet.
The plan is to launch it in January 2021 alongside our individual businesses. The website is in its infancy but there is a landing page to register your interest on.

Many thanks and here’s to a more prosperous 2021.
