The Retail Excellence masterclass, part of the We Mean Business events for female entrepreneurs, is tailored to women in the retail sector and focuses on how to increase sales and minimise costs to grow your profit margins.
After a decade of growth, the retail and service industry is facing up to a harsh new reality: only the fittest will survive. The need to streamline the business offer to ensure that profit is maximised without compromising quality has become a necessity.
The ‘Retail Excellence’ event is an engaging, content rich masterclass. This event includes the following sessions:
The right people, right service
Building effective relationships is essential to successful retailing. We will look at your relationships with staff, clients and suppliers. Are your relationships working for or against you?
The right product, right place, right time
Is your stock working as hard as you? This event will teach you the art of merchandising to ensure that stock is selling itself. We cannot be in all places at all times, so stock must be presented perfectly to maximise sales, after all, “retail is detail!”
Costs and profit
We will look at how you can cut costs and not quality, losing excess and becoming a leaner, healthier business machine. We must remember that a recession, although painful, is temporary and we must maintain our momentum for the future; cutting quality could be disastrous!
