Visual Merchandising is an effective way to maximise your retail product displays, both in-store and in window displays, to improve your store layout, endorse your brand message and generate sales.
This course will provide you with an insight into the key roles and responsibilities of a visual merchandiser and will show you how to align your products to the retail calendar.
This course is ideal for anyone interested in finding out what it takes to be a visual merchandiser, and equally useful for retail owners and employees who’d like to learn to create their own successful displays and discover the fundamentals of visual merchandising.
With a limited number of places on the course, you'll have the one-to-one attention you need to ensure you leave with the skills to continue developing your skills at home or work.
