Rebecca Sanders is an area manager for Cancer Research UK. She says that she uses skills she learnt on the summer school every day, and has increased profits thanks to the insight into retail that she gained.
“I decided to apply for the summer school because my line manager had attended previously and recommended it.
I hoped to gain extensive business knowledge around driving myself and the business forward, and also to network for useful contacts.
The course exceeded all my expectations. The best bits were the inspirational speakers and the people in my group. I learned what is important to make your business a success, and greater self-awareness.
I use what I learnt every day and am now more conscious of how I deal with people and am able to adapt to all situations.
I also have a better awareness of those around me which means that my team are more behind me. I also have a firmer understanding of what makes a business a success. I have already driven up profit by 5% in the last 18 months, all thanks to this course
I would recommend this course to any retailer. I left feeling confident and ready to move with a clear definition of how to drive the business. It was the most memorable and
impacting week I have ever had both on a personal and business level.”
