Event description

Description

A fun, fact filled day where like-minded florists can get together to talk, network and share ideas in a totally relaxed and informal way.

Because GFE is all about the delegates so there are no sponsors, nobody trying to sell you anything and the speakers will only talk about the subject!

Best of all, because we’re working ‘in the round’ rather than sitting in rows in the dark everyone will get to meet everyone and go away with fresh ideas, renewed enthusiasm and new friends as well.

Programme

09.00 Registration, coffee and seasonal offerings

Who wants to be a millionaire?

OK, maybe a million is a big ask but we reckon we can get you up the money ladder. Because everyone has a clever trick, idea, add on or design that gets them more sales. In this ‘Ask the Audience’ session we’ll be sharing ideas that can boost Mother’s Day sales and beyond; pad and paper provided for all the clever ideas that will come out!

11.15 Morning Coffee break … more seasonal offerings

Making online sales work harder

It doesn’t matter who built your website it’s what YOU do with it that matters. Something Karen Lindsay of Flowers of Kilmarnock has learned only too well with sales on the increase EVERY month! Can you do the same? Follow some of Karen’s ideas and we reckon so. Bring your laptop or device and you can do some of them instantly!

13.00 3 course lunch in the Restaurant

Brexit Schmexit .. what it means for florists

Who knows what will happen and when. One thing is certain; flower buying will never be the same again. Nigel Jenney, head honcho of the Fresh Produce Consortium will be joined by wholesalers Ian Ian McClellan (FleuraMetz) and John Davidson (Tom Brown) to explain how to deal with it an hopefully your minds at rest.

15.00 Afternoon tea and cake - you won’t go hungry at GFE!!

You are champions .. never forget it!

It’s bally tough being a florist. And nobody understands the highs and lows like another florists. In this session we talk honestly about how to keep going however manky the customers, however deathly the sales and share the ways you can ride the storms and celebrate the highs!

16.30 GFE ends
