We are going to be at the stunning Seamill House Hotel in West Kilbride for our June event. The event will take place in the View Restaurant, which means that as well as enjoying a delicious two-course meal you will get to take in the beautiful views of the Isle of Arran.

Marney & Ian Gardner of Medicaid (Scotland)will be sharing their expertise of First Aid, presenting some demos andtalking about how the couple started their journey in Troon, eight years ago.

To top it all of, guest speaker, Phyllis McLeish will be sharing her inspirational story. Phyllis has over 25 years experience in business & finance, specialising in the construction and rail sectors over the last 15 years. With a background in accountancy, Phyllis has spent the last 10 years with QTS Group, a successful railway engineering company which she, her husband and other McLeish family members are director / shareholders.  QTS has seen exponential growth over the last six years and is now one of the top 20 maintenance suppliers to Network Rail. Phyllis had a combined remit of Finance & Commercial Director at QTS but 3 years ago reduced her role to that of Commercial Director only to allow her to pursue other interests and dedicate more time to her family, new business interests and her charity work.   

A recent addition to her business life has been the formation of the AM Media Group which includes Ayrshire Magazine. A long held ambition to be part of the creative industries realised and which she is looking forward to developing. 

In her position as Commercial Director at QTS, she has overseen the brand become big supporters of Developing the Young Workforce, Women in Engineering and the sponsorship of Young Athletes.  Phyllis is also one of the founding trustees of the Kilmarnock Community Sports Trust (KCST) and in addition supports the Prince’s Trust in Scotland in a variety of ways including sponsorship and as a table host at the Trust’s legendary charity day “Lunch with an Old Bag”. QTS and the McLeish family also provide considerable donations and other support to many other local and national charities.
