Sales and negotiation expert Steve Jones from ReSharpen will provide visitors to the HTA National Plant Show (24 and 25 June at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire) with hints and tips on how to strike the best deal when it comes to buying and selling plants.
In his talk on Wednesday 25 June (10.00-10.30) titled ‘They sell themselves don’t they?’ he will explore what goes on behind the scenes to ensure that plants are on sale at the right place, in the right numbers and in the right conditions for sale. Steve will examine some of the crucial deals which need to work for both sides before the customer makes their choice from the display bench.
The Seminar Area, sponsored by Barclaycard, will host three diverse presentations over the course of the Show which focus on a theme of adapting to challenges and change. The HTA National Plant Show, sponsored by Hortipak which celebrates its fifth birthday this year, takes place at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry on 24 and 25 June 2014.
