VM-Unleashed! retail workshops:

VM-Unleashed’s retail workshops are practical and commercial. They focus on the systematic delivery of attractive & profitable stores.

They are completely customiseable to cover either a single retail function in depth or more commonly several functions and the integration and collaboration between them required to deliver sales performance improvements.

Retail workshops can be 1 day or more usually 2 days in duration with flexible modules to suit daily client timetables.

The workshops are personalised to the audience, to the sector and to the job function and objectives of the retailer team present, however most benefit is achieved from an attendance from across retail departments and essentially buying & merchandising, visual merchandising, marketing, space planning, commercial, sales and store operations teams.

The workshop process also includes a day of client store visits and discussions leading to a review in the workshop of the client’s stores, as well as reviews and reference to competitors and current international best practice stores.

The workshops themselves are a combination of visual stimulation and strategic process insights and can also include practical exercises in a head office pilot store.

Every retail workshop is written and delivered to be as relevant and productive for each client as possible including both individual and team exercises and discussions.

Always expert and easily accessible.

The workshop covers all retail functions from space planning, buying & merchandising, store layout and design, visual merchandising & communication, retail calendar development, prime & price promotions, VM tools, processes and retail organisational structure

VM “Quick-Wins” Store Actions Workshop:

Our popular entry workshop for VM and operational teams from head office to stores.

This 1-day workshop is aimed at identifying opportunities and developing recommendations for “quick-win” actions in stores from space planning, product grouping, visual merchandising displays and techniques, rules & regimes and the management of product densities, best seller and worst seller product management.

Whilst it covers all retail functions from space planning, buying & merchandising, store layout, visual merchandising & communication, retail calendar deliver, VM tools, processes and retail processes it focuses on those elements that can be delivered decisively, quickly and cost effectively across stores.

It also explores improvements in the relationship between VM and other head office retail functions that currently commit “crimes against the stores” and hold back attractive and profitable store delivery.

Specifically addresses the visual merchandising functions and is therefore appropriate for an audience drawn from head office, field and store visual merchandisers but related retail functions across the business. It can be adapted to be suitable from 12-30 people.
