MUARC delivers another well-received Road Safety Management Leadership Program

MUARC hosted road safety professionals from around the world last month for another successful instalment of the Road Safety Management Leadership Program.

In addition to representation from domestic agencies including Victoria Police, Transport Accident Commission, Transport for NSW and WA Police Force, there was also a strong international flavour. The Program attracted participants from South Africa, United Arab Emirates and Pakistan, while also welcoming Ms Tum Tangthanaseth from the WHO Thailand Country Office as the first-ever recipient of a Low and Middle Income Country (LMIC) Scholarship.

The Program saw the introduction of a new component known as the ‘Insights Club’. Participants undertook pre-course reading before discussing the research papers with their tables and Program Faculty. A show-of-hands suggested overwhelming support for the new feature.

As has become a Program tradition, the mid-week dinner was held at the RACV City Club. Mr Japh Chuwe, CEO and Registrar of South Africa’s Road Traffic Infringement Agency, delivered an in-depth and well-articulated speech about his personal journey in road safety.

Mr Chuwe participated in the Program and spoke glowingly of its continued importance to the strategic operations of his organisation.

Dates for the next Program will be announced in January 2020.
