Three years ago, Kerching Retail launched another UK first at Stratford City, London. A training 'boot camp' designed for retailers and evening trade businesses. Now a popular tool for town and city centres to support their retail and leisur businesses.
What is it?
- 3-4 days back to back retail workshops
- Suitable for evening trade businesses
- Drop in & out
- For owners and staff
- Top UK Speakers
- On location – in your town/city
- ESL sessions available for traders (English 2nd language)
Boot Camp pulls together a series of intensive training and advice sessions, ran by leading industry experts, over 3-4 days on location.
Local businesses can drop in and out of relevant sessions and send their staff to help develop their skills too. Businesses are not expected to sit through 3 days consecutive training.
The great aspect of Boot Camp is that businesses don't have to travel to Birmingham, Manchester or London to attend retail seminars – leading UK speakers are brought into their local town/city. This also means workshops are tailored around local challenges.
Cost to local businesses
Admission is free for local retailers and evening trade businesses. Seats are reserved prior to each session by email or mobile.
