We’re delighted to announce that journalist and tv broadcaster, Aggie MacKenzie, is the celebrity guest presenter for our 2014 Conference, Too Good To Waste.
Delivered in association with Zero Waste Scotland and supported by The Herald and William Tracey, the Too Good To Waste conference will firmly focus on the Circular Economy in Scotland and the essential contribution that the CRNS membership is making to Scottish society.
‘One of the objectives of the conference is to network our membership with thought leaders, practitioners, sector leaders, and inspirational and motivational speakers who have the ability to advance dialogue and collaborative action on waste prevention and reduction. We are delighted that Aggie MacKenzie will be joining us at this very special event, hosted by media presenter Catriona Shearer. With industry expert Iain Gulland of Zero Waste Scotland set to deliver the Keynote Address and a range of members presenting on best practice in the community the day is promising to be an outstanding event in the reuse, repair and recycle calendar in Scotland.’
Aggie is probably best known for co-presenting Channel 4’s How Clean is your House? and recently presented 50 episodes of Storage Hoarders on ITV. In this series Aggie investigated the increasing demand for storage units and the strain that long-term storage can have on finances and relationships.
“It is the aim of CRNS, in partnership with the Scottish Government and Zero Waste Scotland, to strengthen our role as a national networking hub for our membership so that we share the latest ideas, research, developments and technologies in our circular economy and waste management sector,” adds Mary McLuskey. “The conference plays a big part in this agenda and has been designed to explore and discuss new innovations, best practice, and successful business models that are keeping pace within a new and constantly changing economic landscape – a landscape that is creatively circular rather than linear. Aggie will be an inspiration to many of our delegates and I’m looking forward to welcoming her to our 10th anniversary event.’
The conference is being held on 23 October at the Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow. If you are involved in the reuse, repair and recycle sector and would like to attend the conference then please visit www.crns.org.uk or telephone Matt on 01786 469002.
