DIDCOT, UK: John Stanley is providing evening seminars that will give you an insight to “Becoming a Game Changer… the Future Garden Centre”! In partnership with the HTA, the internationally-respected consultant, John Stanley will be touring the UK during Autumn and putting on several evening seminars.  

John Stanley works with garden centres in 35 countries across the world.  His retail experience covers hands-on retailing in supermarkets, hardware stores, garden centres, farmers markets and drug stores.

Some of the content to be covered during the evening seminars includes:

  • The traditional garden centre is dying whilst those with vision are growing their sales
  • What are the “winning ideas” that are being used by the ‘Game Changers’?
