Toolbox Talks

Stretching from the Borders to the Highlands and islands – and everywhere in between – our ever-popular technical roadshows deliver invaluable advice to hundreds of Members every year. 

Taking place throughout May and June, our experts visit 12 venues across Scotland, updating Members and answering questions on new developments, products, training and benefits. 

As well delivering a wealth of essential technical information, the events also feature suppliers, wholesalers, games and freebies, with breakfast rolls and hot drinks to get the day started. 

And because we appreciate that Members have busy schedules, all talks are concise and to the point, with sessions finished by 2pm and lunch provided. Non-Members are always welcome too.

Online Toolbox Talks
