Made You Look Workshop!


Aimed towards delegates wishing to learn or improve their visual display skills – with any product! Either on a one-to-one basis with you at your place of work, or at one of our workshops.

We offer a totally flexible approach to suit your needs from small independent retailers to large national chains, as well as garden centres, schools and visitor centres. We fit in with your requirements so you gain maximum benefit from our time together.

Why don’t you form a group with your neighbouring retailers and we will come to you?

This is especially suitable for Town Centre Managers, Chambers & Local Authorities wishing to raise the profile and encourage trade within their areas.

You will be left full of inspiration and the confidence to create your own displays on a regular basis – you will never look back!
