Event description

Description

What makes a successful grooming business?

Is it showing your huge love of animals, providing great customer care, or employing qualified staff who show great skills with scissors and a brush? It is all of those things... plus a great business mind-set!

Bring a pen, some paper, and your questions to Nicola, the founder of Ravensford Consultancy Ltd, who understands the pet industry inside-out, as she will be on hand to guide you in ways to further your business and reach your goals! As a result of this seminar you'll return to your salon (or grooming pod, or mobile grooming van) feeling motivated, confident, and ready for the next step.

With a strong insiders knowledge after previously being in charge of 80 cat/dog grooming parlours in Pets at Home, Nicola will be glad to pass on her tips and tricks of the pet grooming trade that she has learnt over the years including what customers really need from you, complaint reduction techniques, streamlining business tasks, finding more clients and increasing revenue.


This course is ideal for those who:

  • Have just started their business
  • Feel overwhelmed by working alone and the vast array of tasks that are needed
  • Those who are investors of a grooming salon and would like to know how it could perform to its full potential
  • Those who have run a successful grooming business for many years but who would like a boost of motivation with some fresh ideas
  • Those who are thinking of buying into the grooming industry or as part of a diversification plan
