Webinar Speakers
Graham Mylward (Senior Road Safety Officer @Hampshire County Council)

Graham Mylward has led on Hampshire’s Driver Skills Scheme 60+ for 12 years. In this time he has observed driver behaviour in many different situations and worked closely with other local agencies, including the local Driving Mobility Centre. This experience, along with his background as a driver trainer, has enabled him to gain a good understanding of the needs of older drivers and particularly how to mitigate risk as the ageing process begins to have an increasing, albeit gradual, affect.

Rob Heard (Host - Chair and Founder of Older Drivers Forum @Older Drivers Forum)

Rob Heard is the founder and Chairperson of the Older Drivers Forum. Rob has previously been in the Police Force for 30 years, being part of the Roads Policing department for 27 years. Rob is passionate about Road Safety and prior to retirement he was the Sergeant in charge of Road Safety for Hampshire and Thames Valley Police. Rob still works with the Police as a volunteer running their Older Drivers programme.
He is a member of the National Older Drivers Task Force and chairs the committee looking at self help and support. The task force presented a national strategy to the UK government in July 2016 to give help and support to older drivers to carry on driving safely for longer with some key recommendations. Rob has won numerous national awards for his work with Older Drivers and recently been awarded a lifetime achievement award from Road Safety Support.
