Areas of ExpertiseWell-versed in global buying, I have 30 years of experience in leading and supporting teams, launching new concepts, building brands and training employees.

Workshops & Training

Understanding how your customer – your buyer – thinks is key to achieving retail success. My expansive experience in this area will show you and your teams how to think differently. Together we’ll delve into new skills and techniques that will result in a real impact on final profit. All my training sessions are designed specifically with your buyer, and therefore your business, in mind.

With substantial, successful experience managing global buying teams, I will help you understand how to do the same – whether your team is large or small, in-house or remote, global or local. We’ll examine how to engage teams, develop understanding, and change strategy to deliver significant sales growth.

I have been instrumental in supporting business to deliver an average growth of 30% per year during my time as Global Head of Category.

Having a passion for innovation and newness I have led various projects to create new store concepts either from initial idea or from an existing brand but with a new exposure.

Innovation is a passion which has led me to successfully develop concepts in fun and interesting ways. Take, for example, the ‘pop-up stores’ I initiated at airports for Pandora and Bvlgari – both were a successful new way of selling. My background in both retail and buying operations will help you understand the best products for retail, and the mechanics required for successful trading.

Maintaining growth is important for any brand. To do this you need to understand the buyer’s requirements and interests in order to implement impactful strategies. Let me show you the best routes to achieve this for your brand, allowing you to increase customer numbers via development solutions designed to increase profit. From strategic buying to improved distribution – together we will achieve enhanced sales results.

Workshops & Training

Training and workshops can take place as a one off, or on a scheduled on-going basis. We can discuss your training needs and fee will vary accordingly.

My consultation services will analyse and audit your business, advising on current work-flow to suggest improvements and opportunities. Consultation services are paid at a daily rate and can be tailored to your time-scale.

Working on a retainer basis, I can make my services available to you long-term. This allows flexibility for when your needs change or arise, and allows us to dive deeper into your business to achieve strategic growth over time.

When you need some extra support, I offer project-based assistance. This is charged as a fee-per-project which can be discussed according to scope and timescale.

Depending on the project or task I can be flexible to start with a consultation and move into a long-term partnership arrangement based on the strategic growth plan.
