Guide to Successful Retailing – inspired by Mary Portas
It can be hard when you’re running your own business to take the time to stand back and really look at what is happening. Over the years Mary has helped hundreds of retailers take that step back and make changes to become more profitable.
These lessons have inspired a series of business courses designed to meet the needs of small and medium sized business owners and managers.
Developed in conjunction with Skillsmart Retail and delivered exclusively through the National Skills Academy for Retail, the Guide to Successful Retailing provides the knowledge and tools to help independent retailers understand their business, monitor its success, predict future costs, identify growth potential, and plan for the unexpected.
Covering every stage of creating and running a successful business, each module has an invaluable set of hints and tips to improve performance. These include:
- Retail Finance & Business Planning
Guides you through building a business plan, cash management and monitoring sales, to help your business stay in a positive financial position
- Driving Sales through Marketing
From traditional marketing techniques to the opportunities of social media, this course gives you the tools needed to increase sales
- Buying & Visual Merchandising
Provides you with all the information, tips and tools to help buy, price and display your stock to maximise sales
The Guide to Successful Retailing is only available through the National Skills Academy for Retail, which delivers consistent, high-quality training for retail businesses, their employees and future workforce through a network of skills shops across the UK.
