Schaeffler reveals TV star speaker for conference

Schaeffler has revealed the TV star which will be the keynote speaker of its Schaeffler REPXPERT Conference, taking place in Coventry in May.

Colin Denton, star of TV’s Classic Car Garage, has been unveiled as a keynote speaker for Schaeffler‘s all-new REPXPERT Conference, which takes place at the Manufacturing Training Centre on Wednesday 22nd May, 2024.

Having clocked-up decades of automotive experience, when he’s not in front of the camera, Colin is busy as the Chief Executive of the North London Garages Group Training Association (NLGGTA), which for 50 years has been delivering training, apprenticeships and more.

At the REPXPERT Conference, Colin will be looking at the changing face of automotive apprenticeships in the context of the skills shortage. He will explain how this affects garages and the wider industry.

He said: “Apprenticeships are the foundation of the whole garage industry. The way we teach young people is being influenced by changes in vehicles, but it’s not just that. The people who are wanting to become apprentices is also changing. It’s important for the industry to acknowledge both of these factors.”

Jeff Earl, Marketing Communications Manager at Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket (UK), added: “Colin’s experience and perspective will provide even greater depth to the content on offer at the Schaeffler REPXPERT Conference. His knowledge of the industry, and his sheer enthusiasm for all things automotive will prove to be a big draw for those looking to attend.”

The Schaeffler REPXPERT Conference will run from 9am to 5pm, and delegates will be treated to breakfast, hot lunch and refreshments throughout the day.

Free tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis and garages are being urged to book theirs now to avoid disappointment. The number of remaining tickets is said to be extremely limited.
