RETAILERS in Milton Keynes will be able to get an insight into thinking on planning, marketing and visual merchandising at taster sessions to courses endorsed by guru Mary Portas.

The free one-hour taster sessions at theskillscentre:mk will be held from 12 noon and 5.30pm on Monday, July 23 and at 10am and 4pm on Wednesday, July 25.

The sessions are aimed to meet the needs of small to medium sized businesses and provide businesses with the skills, knowledge and tools to run a profitable retail operation and also an opportunity to network.

Previous attendee, Babs Morse, said: “The most beneficial element of the course was focusing on three key retail business areas. I’d already started my business plan so needed help with the financial parts.”

theskillscentre:mk anticipate a high interest in the sessions so retailers are advised to book early.
