A further six of Stewart’s centre managers and senior team members are pursuing an eight-day Management Development course running for 12 months.
Lindsay Muir, director of Warwickshire based training company Cedar Associates, congratulated Terry Head on his success within the course which involved both training and coaching.
The company is now set to provide a further three courses for supervisors from all of its centres, including staff from the recently acquired Abbey Garden Centre at Titchfield, and the Christchurch and Wimborne centres, that will involve planning exercises with focus on time and resources management.
Head said: "This training helps to ensure that we maintain our standard and values for the benefit of our customers. Lindsey and Cedar Associates have been actively developing courses encouraged by the Garden Centre Association, to develop the professional standing within our sector of retail. Becoming a bigger business should not limit our focus on customer service.
