Isn’t it time you set your focus on FutureScape Spring?
This week, we’ve set our sights on the BUSINESS ZONE – starting from 10am on Tuesday 12 March 2019.
This is becoming a bit of a habit for us. A FutureScape event, an over-flowing programme of speakers and sparkling debate interest. Make your mark this Spring – register now to attend and set YOUR sights on our FutureScape Spring programme.
THE BUSINESS ZONE – Starts at 10am
Growing Your Business
Step up, stand out and make headlines for the right reasons. Let’s talk tactics. In our first Business Zone session, you’ll grab some pearls of strategic wisdom from Barry Randall (Business Behemoth at Leicestershire Garden Design) and Lee Bestall (Creative Oracle at Bestall & Co Ltd). Two sides of the same successful landscape coin, these two shining lights have built their businesses – and continue to stride forward boldly, quite literally from the ground up.
What can you do better? What’s holding you back? Who does this well? Why can’t you? Top class debate with a panel who pack a mighty landscaping punch – that’s Phil Jones (Groundwork Impresario at ESL), Patricia Fox (Design Deity at Aralia), Tony Woods (Heavenly Horticulturist at Garden Club London), Paul Downer (Shining Light at Oak View Landscapes) and Sean Butler (Landscape Legend at Cube 1994). All known for their design and business brilliance, all unafraid to stand up and speak out – and all ready to discuss the finer points of business success with an open audience.
How Technology can help with Recruitment and Development
Our FutureScape Spring panel will be enlightening us with their take on recruitment and development – how to attract, hold on to, enrich and nurture individuals in our sector for mutual benefit. The stigma surrounding the horticulture industry contributes to a skills shortage and this seminar will raise this issue and discuss how we can ensure that we are promoting our great industry in the best possible way.
Future Technology in Landscaping
Do you see your business adopting the latest in emerging software, innovation and tech: should you embrace it or hang back? Debate with the best in the field and hear it here, first. Chaired by our very own MD Maestro from Pro Landscaper, Jim Wilkinson, drop in to hear how your industry is evolving and driving forward new trends and how you can jump on board (or drive it yourself!). Jim will be faced with a formidable array of experts who will lend their foresight in this area: Peter Wilder (Techno Colossus at Wilder Associates), Sim Hassall (IT Supremo at Ground Control) and Tamsin Slatter (Digital Design Aficionado at VectorWorks).
