Talent in Logistics Awards 2018. The Award was presented by special guest host Jeff Stelling, presenter of Gillette Soccer Saturday and live football, and Award Sponsor, BITA.
“Ryan Small, of Small Training Solutions, is a clear advocate for safety and training for materials handling equipment, dedicating his time to ensuring that businesses are safe and compliant,” says Ruth Edwards, Talent in Logistics Event Manager. “His company is an asset to the industry and deserving of the title, Forklift Training Provider of the Year.”
Small Training Solutions goes above and beyond the expectations of its clients, delivering affordable services and ongoing customer care. Providing free training materials and support documents, the company takes the time with clients to ensure they are compliant, even spending days, free of charge, setting up clients’ defect books, fault reporting procedures, pre-use checks and safety posters. Small Training Solutions also helps customers to sign up to use helpful registers that they weren’t previously aware of.
A number of the company’s clients have reported a reduction in near misses, accidents and damage to the forklifts since following training, and significant cost savings due to improved maintenance, and having less machines ‘off the road’.
The Talent in Logistics Awards was created to celebrate professionals at every level of learning and development, and reward those who are inspiring the next generation of logistics and transport talent.
On Thursday 21st June 2018, logistics professionals attended the awards ceremony at the Telford International Centre, to recognise and celebrate talented individuals from across the sector. There were 16 worthy winners, from trainers, instructors and Learning and Development (L&D) Managers, to LGV drivers and apprentices, HR Managers and Transport Managers.

“Forklift training plays a vital role in safety and efficiency in our industry, so we are grateful for the example being set by companies like Small Training Solutions,” adds Ruth.
Event organisers have announced the next Talent in Logistics event, which includes the annual Awards and also a daytime conference, to take place on 27th June 2019 at Arena MK in Milton Keynes.
