Get ready for a summer of learning with return of webinar series

13 April 2021 Announcement


BIGGA has revealed that the innovative Continue to Learn Extra webinar series will be returning this summer.

Brought to BIGGA members by the same team that produces the incredibly-successful Continue to Learn education programme each January, Continue to Learn Extra will once again see some of the leading lights of the turf management industry offering tips and advice on a digital platform. Other speakers will be experts in topics such as management, ecology and architecture.

BIGGA Head of Learning & Development Sami Strutt said: “We introduced Continue to Learn Extra at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic as a means for BIGGA members to continue their professional development despite the restrictions placed on everyday life. Our webinars proved incredibly popular throughout the summer and helped maintain that sense of a community that being a part of BIGGA brings as it provided members with the opportunity to ask questions and start conversations, despite the difficulties we all faced. 

“The webinars also provided BIGGA’s L&D team with an insight into new ways our members can consume education and professional development, leading to us hosting a number of other learning opportunities online, including this January’s Continue to Learn education programme, which took place entirely on a digital format. 

“I’m incredibly proud that we’re going to be hosting Continue to Learn Extra again this summer and hope that many BIGGA members at every stage of their career join us for what stands to be a fantastic summer of learning.”

Editions of the webinar will also be transformed into an audio format and published as episodes of BIGGA’s The Green Room Podcast, available to download and listen to for free.

The Continue to Learn Extra webinars will take place throughout the summer on alternate Thursdays of each month at 4pm, commencing on 13 May. There will be a break in July, with the webinars starting up again in August.

The webinars will be recorded and BIGGA members can watch them again or for the first time at their leisure. Last year’s Continue to Learn Extra webinars are also available to watch online on the BIGGA website. 

You'll be able to find out details about the webinars in the What's On section of the BIGGA website when webinar topics and speakers are announced.
