The IMI’s CEO, Steve Nash FIMI, looks back on a year of progress
The end of 2013/14 marked the completion of work streams supported by the second round of UK Commission of Employment and Skills (UKCES) Employer Investment Funding (EIF) and the beginning of a new three year strategy for the IMI, which includes provisions for the diversification of IMI services, reintegration of IMI and IMI Awards and the expansion of IMI’s activities overseas.
As such, this year’s annual report provides us with a great opportunity to review what we have achieved over the past two years and look forward to the future of the organisation. I am proud of the work IMI has undertaken this year and extremely excited about our future direction. I hope to see many of you joining our journey over the next three years...

Chairman Adrian Smith, FIMI FIoD FCMI, on how the IMI can help businesses take advantage of green shoots in the sector
One of the highlights of 2013/14 has been the first consumer campaign for the Professional Register, fronted by the BBC F1 presenter, Suzi Perry, which really placed the Register on the map. This is the first of a three year commitment the IMI is undertaking to promote the Register to the public and members can look forward to more exciting developments in this area going forward.
For the past few years we have often spoken about the economic challenges facing the sector, however, this year is perhaps the first opportunity in some time we are able to talk about green shoots and new opportunities. Improving car sales figures and reducing unemployment rates suggest automotive businesses willing to embrace change can cautiously anticipate an upturn and a related increase in uptake in new technologies, such as electric and hybrid vehicles, offer avenues to gain new customers.
