Buyer Skills Intensive Workshop
margin & pricing education & strategy
applied & achieved margin management
inventory, promotion & category management
The goal of the workshop is to augment the skills of buyers and department managers to enable them to confidently make connections between the impacts of their work and the customer experience and financial bottom-line, and to effectively manage the financial success of their departments and margins through proper inventory, pricing, and category management.
We will be offering this on two separate days, Wednesday, October 16 and Thursday, October 17. This is a one-day program so you can choose which day you would like to attend. If multiple people from your co-op want to come, some can attend on one day and some on the next. We chose two days because we understand food co-ops can’t have their entire buying and management staff gone on the same day.
The training will be led by Brittany Baird, Operations and Financial Improvement Specialist with Columinate.
When: Two Separate Sessions
Wednesday, October 16, 10am - 4pm
Thursday, October 17, 10am - 4pm
Where: Cloudport Co-Working Multi-Space, 63 Federal Street, Portland, ME
