This will include a barbecue and social meeting, and is open to all APL members, non-members, garden designers and prospective members.
Dorney Court Kitchen Garden is a family business run by a team of very passionate, visionary people. In 2010, Ryan Wasmuth decided to use his business experience in landscape design and horticulture to create a unique venue for customers. The venue has had a chequered history as a retail site, and Wasmuth will talk about his vision for the site, and how having a firm retail base has helped his landscape business.
He is backed by successful businessman Kevin Gaskell, who provides sound business advice in his role as mentor. Gaskell was one of the youngest chief executives of Porsche UK and was responsible for bringing that business back from the brink of bankruptcy. An engineer and entrepreneur, he has been recognised as "one of the top 40 managers under 40 in the UK". He will speak about his ideas on what makes a world-class company.
The evening will round off with an update on APL activities and news about the new APL Market Update – market information especially for landscapers.
There is a £10 charge for this evening, to cover barbecue food and administration. You’ll need to pay on the night. Other drinks will be available to purchase throughout the evening.
