Conference 2019: Lightning Talks

According to Wikipedia, lightning is ‘a violent and sudden electrostatic discharge where two electrically charged regions in the atmosphere temporarily equalize themselves‘. The Lightning Talks session at the PlantNetwork Conference 2019 might not be violent but they certainly will be charged!

This session is about high energy, high interest talks of 5-10 minutes that seek to enthuse, inspire and involve all participants. They are delivered by delegates who want to contribute to discussion around climate change and gardens. Taking place at the end of the first day of the conference (8th May), the Lightning Talks will end the day on an energetic high note, prior to the conference dinner at a secret beach-side location.

PlantNetwork is pleased to announce the following speakers in the Lightning Talks session:

  • Gary Long – Curator of Trewithen Gardens, Cornwall
  • Janet Manning – Water Management Specialist at the Royal Horticultural Society: Water – Painting by Numbers
  • Rob Brett – Curator of RHS Garden Hyde Hall
  • Dr Phil Sterling, Programme Manager – Building Sites for Butterflies, Butterfly Conservation
