o   Are you dealing with your suppliers in a professional way to help drive sales and profit?

With margin continuously under pressure, the need to buy more professionally has never been so important.  As a business, if you give away at one end you have to save it at the other just to stand still.

Aimed at Branch Managers, Assistant Managers and Buyers who have a responsibility for spending money with suppliers, this workshop will provide a set of invaluable tools to enable them to get the most from their suppliers, resulting in both increased sales and reduced costs.

Supplier relationships and meetings will become more professional and action focused ensuring that the supplier actually starts to work for you. 

Anyone who attends will leave with a plan of how to develop ‘Sales Partnerships’ that ensure the supplier helps you and your team to grow the business and in return their revenue.
