Car Dealer Live 73: Scottish Motor Trade Association’s Sandy Burgess

Time 9:05 am, July 17, 2020

The Scottish Motor Trade Association appeared live on Car Dealer Magazine’s YouTube channel today.

Broadcast from 12pm, the Scottish Motor Trade Association’s (SMTA) chief executive, Sandy Burgess, was on Car Dealer Live answering questions from host James Batchelor.

The SMTA has long been a major voice in the Scottish motor trade. Founded in 1903 it has striven to ‘encourage, promote and protect’ its members and to give a guiding hand to consumers.

On the show, Burgess chatted more about the organisation, how it has called for more clarity for Scottish dealers during lockdown, September sales predictions and how important apprentices are to the motor industry – an area the SMTA supports and promotes through its apprenticeship programme.

You can watch the broadcast at the top of this page or on Car Dealer’s YouTube page.
