Pro Landscaper is proud to announce the winners of its 30 Under 30: The Next Generation 2017, sponsored by Glendale, with an official presentation to be held at FutureScape 2017 on Tuesday 14 November at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey.
30 Under 30: The Next Generation was initially launched to help young people within the horticulture and landscape sectors gain recognition, celebrate their achievements, and to promote them in a way that would enhance their careers.
This has certainly been the case with the previous winners, who have commented that the accolade has helped them to make more connections and raised their own profiles as well as that of the industry,
We would like to thank our 2017 sponsor Glendale, which has recognised the importance of investing in and developing people within the horticulture sector; it entered no less than nine of its own workforce for this year’s award.
Alex Paterson, operations director at Glendale, said: “We are delighted to sponsor Pro Landscaper’s 30 Under 30: The Next Generation, in 2017.
“We are passionate about this accolade, which aims to highlight the achievements of 30 inspiring young people in our industry who have demonstrated passion, imagination, innovation and expertise in their chosen fields, in such a way that enhances their careers and provides opportunities for advancement.”
