Classic Car Garage star Colin Denton to speak at Schaeffler REPXPERT Conference

Date: Monday 18 March 2024

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 in Coventry 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.

“Apprenticeships are the foundation of the whole garage industry,” said Colin. “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.”

Available on a first-come, first-served basis, garages are being urged to book their free REPXPERT Conference tickets now to avoid disappointment. The number of remaining tickets is extremely limited.

"Colin’s experience and perspective will provide even greater depth to the content on offer at the Schaeffler REPXPERT Conference,” said Jeff Earl, Marketing Communications Manager at Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket (UK) Ltd. “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 runs from 9am to 5pm, and delegates will be treated to breakfast, hot lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
