These types of workshops do not exist anywhere else.

The information that I give away is normally only available by the ‘been there, done that, got it wrong, made the mistakes and paid for it’ school of learning.

It’s all real industry insider gold that can save you time, a lot of pressure and stress and most importantly money.

Its strategies and processes that set your brand up to succeed whatever amazing opportunities come your way.

Why invest in one of my workshops?

Now, I understand that money is important and that as business owners you are constantly trying to work out what and when to spend. These workshops are priced far lower than you expect considering the insider knowledge I provide just isn’t available anywhere else.

What return on investment can you expect?

Brands that I have worked with have gone on to see internet sales rocket by over 150% typically within a 6 month period. Within a handful of good orders you will have recouped your investment.

With retailer fines touching as much as £250.00 for one mistake the Get Retail Ready workshop provides you with priceless information that can save you thousands.

Companies who have attended my Get Retail Ready workshops have 100% success rate wining lucrative retail contracts. Your first order for a major retailer would dwarf the expense of one of my workshops.

Just in case you need any more persuading, this is what my customers have to say about my workshops.

“In creating a new small business, there are many aspects that are of the unknown.  Warehousing was one of them.  Rachel Whittaker made this educational process seamless by first educating myself and the team about what warehousing entails, the information we would need to gather and helped organise visits with warehouses she felt best suited our needs.  She has been invaluable in providing information and guiding us along the way on who would be the best match.  In short, she simplified a complete unknown to us.  I could not recommend her more highly.”

Dr Maryam Zamani Founder of MZ Skin who booked an Introduction to Beauty Logistics Workshop for her and her team and then went on to use my Warehouse Match Service.

“I had an insightful meeting with Rachel. She highlighted logistic issues I was completely unaware of as a newbie to the beauty industry. This set me in good stead for a new high street retailer who we’re about to launch with in August. I felt like I knew exactly the right questions to ask as a result and could approach the new partnership with complete clarity. Thank you Rachel, can’t recommend your work highly enough.”

Michele Scott-Lynch founder of Boucleme who booked my Retail Ready Workshop and went onto win a lucrative deal with a high street retailer.

“I was getting bogged down with trying to develop a gift range. I seemed to have lots of possibilities and was finding it impossible to decide which was best suited for the retail sector I work in.

Rachel helped me clarify my target market, typical gift offerings and through a process of brainstorming and lots of post its! we were able to develop a coherent range. Leaving me with a clear head and plan for the way forward.

I would thoroughly recommend Rachel, if you need help and support in developing your gift range. Her clear thinking and challenging questioning helped me develop a range that is commercially viable rather than a range I liked. “

Vicki Evans from Walk Mill Botanics who had one of my VIP days where we tackled the specific task of nailing down and amazing gift range.
