Agenda Scotland

The Nursery Agenda Scotland returns to the Hilton Glasgow for another exciting networking event, on 31st August 2018!

This popular event uses a well-proven and much appreciated formula to offer nursery owners, managing directors and operations directors, as well as organisations providing products and services to the nursery sector, the opportunity to meet and decide whether they wish to do business together. The event also offers those attending the chance to update themselves on the key issues in the nursery sector and meet some of the leading personalities.

This will be at no cost to Nurseries!

The programme will include:

  • Meetings between providers and suppliers
  • An interactive Hot Topics conference session with Q&As
  • Single room overnight accommodation and breakfast.

Last year…

NMT Nursery Agenda was once again a huge success in Scotland in 2017!

There was a real buzz in the air on 1 September (and not a pinch and a punch in sight), as not only was there the Scottish Awards to look forward to, but it was preceded by an event that is a hit wherever it takes place: NMT Nursery Agenda. And wasn’t it good to be back in Scotland!

Certainly, the attendees seemed delighted with the day, both the speed dating and the opportunities to network with their peers.

As Claire Millar, the manager of Kirkliston Orchard Nursery, said: “It was very good. We thoroughly enjoyed it – it was certainly good to meet new people.” This was echoed by Leanne Kelly, the manager of Cadzow Nursery School in Hamilton, who enthused, “The whole day went so smoothly. We found it very useful and the food was great!”

The networking continued undiminished throughout the morning and afternoon breaks (delicious pastries!), the two course lunch and the evening meal, which attendees shared with the finalists in the NMT Scottish Awards. Excitement rallied high.

But the high spot for those wanting to get their teeth into the topics uppermost in all Scottish nursery owners’ minds was the Q&A session, chaired by Dr Richard Hawkins, editor-in-chief. He got a lively debate going on issues including the perceived lack of parity shown by the Care Inspectorate, the poor quality of today’s qualified youngsters and everyone’s hate: business rates.
