Grow your network and connect with other women makers.

As part of our Women in Industry Round Tables, we welcome all Women Makers to join us for a virtual forum focused on making your brand ‘retail ready’.

Do you have a fantastic product range that you would love to see on the shelves of brilliant retailers but don't know how to do it? 

This session "Is your brand retail ready?" will be led by guest speaker Siobhan Walsh, an experienced retail and business development consultant. 

Whether you are an artist or designer, take the opportunity to share in other women’s experiences, ask those questions on your mind and offer valuable support to other women makers.

This session will cover:  - The non-negotiables that all brands need to have in place before getting that listing. - Top tips that will get you meetings with those elusive retail buyers. - Do's and don'ts to ensure your meeting leads to a listing.
