It is our annual callout to all Members to put your hand up to help promote LV at the 2019 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show presented by Lawn Solutions Australia.
For full members only - Landscape Designers, Builders & Gardeners there are limited spots left to offer your skills and services in a Consultation role. Consults in the advisory centre will run for approximately 25 minutes (you will carry out a max. of 8 in a 4 hr shift) where patrons can bring along their ideas and plans to discuss with you, which may even result in you winning the job!
For all members, their staff, and provisional & student members, we have our LV concierge/ambassador roles. This is a great way to help get the LV message out there to 'Use a registered Landscaper!' as well as assist with general enquiries. You can hone your skills in client relations, and, by having to think quick on your feet, you can challenge your own knowledge about plants and general landscaping issues that are asked by the public. (We have even had great feedback from previous years where students have managed to pick up employment!)
This is a great opportunity not to be missed, and we would appreciate your help in performing this very important role on behalf of all members.
For your time you will not only be fed lollies and coffee, but you will get a FREE ticket to enter the show, valued at $29.90, to enjoy the Show Gardens, the Great Hall of Flowers, the Sculpture Exhibition and much more. Pick a day, plan your highlights to make a real day of it and join in the fun! We can’t wait to see you there!
