Following our successful Category Development workshops, Big River Solutions is delighted to offer you and your team the chance to benefit from a brand new course, Category Management for non-Category Managers. The one-day event, facilitated by Category Development expert, Christine Edwards, is perfect for non-category managers at all levels who wish to gain a practical working knowledge of category management.

Are there members of your commercial team who would benefit from understanding what Category Management is?

In today’s business environment, all managers require a practical working knowledge of Category Management to make informed business decisions.

The workshop is designed to teach the basics and give delegates a sense of what Category Management is and how their role plays a part within it. It will de-mystify the language of category management to enable managers to contribute more effectively and talk more easily to category management colleagues. It will help delegates develop their fluency in category management terminology, enabling them to speak confidently to customers and add a category perspective to decision making.

Join us on 15th September 2017 at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Wisley Gardens, Surrey.
