Getting Retailer Ready with Karen Green

About the event

When you have done the markets and some D2C sales, there comes a time to take your business to the next level and sell to some retailers whether that is your local independent deli, Whole Foods or even the biggest UK multiple - Tesco!

This workshop will help you get ready to pitch - helping you to understand how to make that first approach, write a killer sales presentation and negotiate that deal. We will even do an exercise to help you calm those selling nerves!

Participants will leave with:
1. Their own 30 sec elevator pitch
2. Pitch deck template
3. Negotiation meeting planner
4. Confidence building technique handout

Please note this is all about the selling and pitching. We will not be covering how to get retailer ready e.g. what accreditation you need, packaging requirements etc. although Karen will be available to answer your questions at the end.
