For more than 20 years, the Solgar lecture tour has been a mainstay of the services offered by our Nutrition and Education department. Both retailers and practitioners have annually attended an evening lecture presented by our Nutrition and Education Director on various health issues relevant to your customers in store or your clients in a practice setting. To make this accessible to as many customers as possible, we aim to lecture in various regions throughout the UK and Ireland and to also make this available on the Solgar Academy following the event.
Our flagship education event, The Solgar Masterclass provides a platform for eminent guest speakers to share some of their considerable expertise. Typically, these events take place over a one or two day period and have proven to be hugely popular with retailers, practitioners and those in the world of complementary health. Renowned past speakers include retail expert Mary Portas, Dr Richard Passwater, Dr Michael Murray and Dr John Briffa. These much sought after speakers are considered leaders in their respective fields, and for many, the Masterclass provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear them speak and interact with them. The Solgar Masterclass is an opportunity to update your knowledge on a wide range of subject matters, as well as network with other like-minded professionals. For those who cannot attend in person, The Solgar Masterclass is recorded and available to view on the Solgar Academy.
