Fleet professionals will be advised on underlining their contributions to their organisations during a webinar organised by the Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP).
The event, entitled 'Fleet operators - adding value to your business' will be hosted by Julie Summerell of TR Fleet.
It will include presentations from Centrica head of fleet Steve Winter, Eric Wright Group fleet and transport manager Steve Openshaw, and Police Scotland fleet manager Stewart Taylor.
AFP chair Paul Hollick, who will also give a general AFP update during the webinar, said: "At a point in time when many companies are looking to make cutbacks, including potentially redundancies, now seems like a good time to help fleet departments spell out exactly the concrete benefits and advantages they bring, or can bring, to their businesses.
"The fleet operators who are presenting during the webinar will be looking at subjects such as showing how the fleet management role within a business can increase efficiency, reduce cost, improve robustness in systems, and which key projects drive business performance.
"We believe that it is also important to show best practice on how to work in close partnership with other stakeholders in your business, partnering on projects, generating board engagement, networking and making the most of any training that may have been undertaken.
"It is very much about constructing demonstrable facts to highlight the ongoing importance of fleet and business transport facilities within organisations. Sometimes, even quite significant achievements can pass under the radar and fleets need to shout about their wins."
The webinar, which is open to all, will take place at on 9.30am on 23 September, and can be accessed via the AFP website.
