Retail Masters | AS Watson
What a week!, Challenging, Inspiring ,Enriching...A few words to describe what was an amazing experience. The well thought out activities and the broad range of expert speakers all contributed to what was an experience that challenged my thinking and gave me some invaluable insight. As always, any event or programme is only as good as the people that lead and participate in it, and I was privileged to be surrounded by an amazing group of my industry peers and world class facilitators.

Retail Masters | Pets at Home
You will be put out of your comfort zone, you will have long days, you will take in more information than you ever have over 4 days - but you will come out feeling you can stand that much taller and stronger than when you went in! Highly recommend, I initially pushed back to my employer about attending, but ended up thanking them for investing in me.

Retail Masters | Signet Jewelers
The 4-day Retail Masters course completely exceeded my expectations. The days were jam packed with data & insight, inspiring speakers, all of which were experts in their field, and a incredibly supportive and interesting group of delegates from all spectrums of the retail industry. It is rare as senior leaders that we get time out of the day to day to learn, challenge and develop and this course allowed us to do it all. Amazing!
