Introducing Carl Sanderson   Carl is a highly experienced facilitator, team-builder, consultant and coach, used to working across organisations from board level to shop floor, primarily in the UK and Europe within the Premium Automotive segment. Between 2013 – 2016 he had the challenge of delivering BMW’s electric car brand (BMW i) into the UK in a market traditionally obsessed with engine size and BHP. This challenge really was about winning hearts and minds of some of the most sceptical people you can ever imagine!  Described by some as a ‘game changer’, he brings energy, enthusiasm and a performance thinking approach to programmes and workshops  – helping people see beyond their immediate team or organisational boundaries to examine the wider impacts – and change – they can deliver but always with an eye on ‘the bottom line’.

Organisations, private and public sector, that would like to book time with Carl, please contact

Image result for vauxhall ampera

Meet the owner of a Vauxhall Ampera which, he says, is the best hybrid vehicle on the market. It has both a fuel and electric power unit but, with one small exception, the electric motor does all the driving. All the engine does is power a generator to supply power to the battery once the charge it received the previous night, from your domestic electricity supply, has run low. Not fully low, because there’s always enough in reserve to give the Ampera its normal pace rather than the reduced pace the 84bhp, 1.4-litre petrol engine could give alone via its generator. That would only happen if you drove about 100 miles up a mountain after the IC engine had kicked in.

What would you like to know? What is it like to drive an Electric or Hybrid Car? How do they accelerate? Is an Electric Bike just for when I get older? How do I find out about charging an electric vehicle? What is involved in obtaining an EV Charger? Is there a difference in the insurance for this new generation of transportation? Are there ways I can reduce the cost and impact of running my current vehicle?

Electric, hybrid, self-charging, low emission, hydrogen are all words you will now hear in showrooms around the country.  Cars that drive themselves, park themselves, react to other vehicles or obstacles automatically. To name just a few changes in the marketplace, and we have not even touched on the accessory market of new solutions to support the driver and their pocket. Barely a month goes by without one of our leading vehicle brands announcing a move into the electric or hybrid arena or showcase the next generation in their low emissions portfolio. Continuing to be able to make informed purchasing decisions is extremely important, but who has the time to visit all those showrooms to carry out all the research necessary to be able to make them? Big Green Wheels launches this year and will become an annual showcase of the latest vehicles from leading brands on the market. The event will put you in front of the experts and guide you through this fast-changing landscape.As well as bring vehicles to one place where you can compare side by side.
