Westland Horticulture to hold masterclasses for garden retail staff

Westland Horticulture is launching its Masterclass Academy at the beginning of 2011, to coincide with its Garden Industry educational days held throughout the UK.

Westland Horticulture’s masterclasses are aimed at garden retail staff, and experienced speakers will provide information to boost the skills and confidence of staff.

The masterclasses will cover four key categories – developments and trends in the market place, customer engagement, how to maximise sales and product knowledge.

The Future Foundation will provide information on trends and Westland Horticulture’s technical team will provide information on specific products to enable retail staff to pass this on to their customers.

Westland Horticulture head of marketing Keith Nicholson said:  "The 2011 Westland Masterclasses are a must for all garden retail staff, as one of the leading companies within this area we will be using our knowledge along with those from outside professional organisations to reinvigorate gardening within centres across the UK."
