We are delighted to announce a fundraising partnership with veteran retailer John Hoerner.

John has collaborated with First Friday and Insight Strategy to develop the new course around his 2015 book Recipes for Retail. The course is aimed at all retail staff irrespective of level or job role and covers all the core elements required to be a successful retailer.

As part of this programme John and his team will be donating 20% of the fee from each course taken to support our charity's work. 

Donations from the course will help us to continue supporting the children of UK fashion and textile staff who have been negatively impacted by the pandemic. By funding children's essentials items, our grants help to ease financial pressure on families during challenging times. 

Over the past last 12 months, John has felt that it has become even more important to appreciate the key fundamentals of retailing as the sector is going through such a crisis due to Covid 19.

A blue box with a black header of text details the training courses available in the Recipes For Retail series.

How to register

Access to the course is through the First Friday Learning portal and encompasses a copy of the book, a set of videos of John answering key questions from each chapter and a workbook to embed the learning. Delegates can work at their own pace and there will be the unique opportunity to interact with John at the end of the programme.

This course is a really simple and cost-effective way to train large numbers of people across all levels and areas of your business. At a time when the fundamentals of retailing have never been more important, this could be a great way for you to train and motivate your teams.
