Alan is hugely respected throughout the horticulture industry with 40 years of outstanding practice under his belt including the creation of more than 60 RHS show gardens, the restoration of historic gardens at a major estate and the founding of two professional bodies.

He delights in sharing his expertise with fellow professionals of all levels – a task undertaken through his training activities, his highly sought-after advice as a gardens management consultant and his Horticulture Week advisory column.

Alan’s workshop will focus on helping parks and gardens professionals take control of their career progression by introducing them to an inspirational approach to learning and skills development. Addressing the needs of professionals of all skills levels, the workshop will show how both individuals and teams can build on their skills and plug knowledge gaps through a shared approach to skills development.

"Gardening is a science without boundaries," Sargent says. "I will be showing that the career of a gardener is also without boundaries. All you need is a passion to succeed and a willingness to allow your career path to lead you onwards and upwards."

  • This workshop will take place at 10.30am
