The keynote speaker for the 8th Annual Distracted Driving Summit is Mike Pitcher. Mike is the former CEO of LeasePlan USA, and the former president of Efficiency Enterprises. He has held senior leadership positions at both Dell Computer and Pitney Bowes.
Purpose: This Summit will bring together industry leaders, scientists, educators, safety professionals, and law enforcement to share ideas, gather information, learn about best practices and forge solutions for distracted driving. The goal will be for all attendees to return to their communities with fresh ideas and reasonable solutions for the distracted driving issues in their area. A tandem goal will be for organizers to gather information and knowledge on issues and roadblocks throughout Virginia in order to build upon existing programs and design better educational opportunities for the future.
Sessions: Breakout sessions will cover a variety of topics including the technology being developed to curb distracted driving, best corporate practices from across the nation, what the research tells us, teen driver issues, law enforcement efforts, and how to ultimately change behavior.
