Retail Planning & Strategy


Do you have a business plan?

Whether you've just starting out or been in the retail sector for many years, having a retail business plan can be a key to your success. Preparing a business plan will help you refine the goals you want to achieve now and in the future.

This workshop will give you the opportunity to step back and look at what's working in your business and what you can improve on. This planning process will challenge you to consider possible bumps in the road and put a plan in place if they do come up. You will come away with a renewed focus on where to allocate your resources and energy, so you are not spreading yourself too thin.
