Glee gathering

Although Glee Gathering has come to an end, you can still access the latest industry intel, trend insights, peer-to-peer panel sessions, and more! Among the speaker line-up were Helen Waddington from Perennial, Lynsey Swales from Social B, Trevor Pfeiffer from Garden Trade News and a host of other experts from across the horticultural and retail industries. Plus, catch up on the winners of the Glee New Product Awards and Great British Growing Awards!

During lockdown many garden centres were forced to rapidly evolve their online operations. One such area is in eCommerce and online presence. With the slow resumption of normal operations, how can you develop an online strategy that is sustainable for the long-term? How can an online presence help to engage with your customers? What are the big wins of operating online? How can you set up a sustainable fulfilment operation?

Speaker:
Lynsey Swales, CEO & International Digital Marketing Strategist, SocialB

Join us for this session as Helen Waddington, Head of Casework for the charity Perennial, talks about the impact the last 6 months have had on your most important asset, your people. It comes as no surprise that this year we have all felt more anxious and stressed, and the growing impact of uncertainty has taken its toll. However, in this session Helen talks openly about some of the key recurring issues she has seen over the last 6 months and gives you some practical steps you can take to support your people.

There will also be an interactive Q&A at the end of the session, so come armed with your questions and Helen will do her best to help you.

Grow Your Own magazine’s Great British Growing Awards are returning to Glee again this September – virtually, as a part of Glee Gathering. These awards recognise all that is great within the gardening industry – from tool companies, to seed suppliers, garden writers to fruit nurseries and everything in between, and really shine a light on those who are going the extra mile. This year’s Great British Growing Awards are nominated and voted for by consumers. This highlights to the industry the favourite products and brands chose by gardeners and what will be in demand for 2021!

Speaker:
Ellen Mary on behalf of Grow Your Own Magazine
