September 22nd/23rd Venue Edinburgh Botanic Gardens

If we believe the retail pundits who tells us that retailing will change more in the next five years than in our life time we need to do some strategic planning for the future. That is exactly what a group of international garden centre owners and managers did in Manchester at the end of January When John Stanley and Kevin Waters presented the first New Vision Seminar in the UK.

New Vision is the brainchild of John Stanley who has been leading this two day strategic planning workshop session for independent garden centres in Australia, Czech, USA, Canada, Ireland ,South Africa and New Zealand.

The aim is for the delegates to look at new business and marketing strategies as they apply to the industry and to develop new business strategies as a result of the meeting.

This means groups are small and the work intense. It is agreed by all members who attend that what happens in the room is confidential to allow them to develop the new strategies discussed ahead of their competition.

The two day workshop sponsored by Scheurich introduced delegates to new marketing concepts and new product developments to help them grow their business.

Build a New Vision for your business

with John Stanley in the beautiful surroundings of Edinburgh Botanic Gardens

22nd/23rd September 2014

Presented by

John Stanley and Kevin Waters

Garden retailing is going through a major period of change. This means that every independent garden centre retailer has to honestly and vigorously assess what they are doing and how they are doing business. More importantly, they must identify and act on their particular opportunities.

Why now Is the time......

The next five years for the garden retail scene is a period of rapid change. In fact, one retail report recently proposed that retailing will change more in the next five years than it has in the last 100 years.

Tim Godwin's from Fosseway Garden Centre's reaction to the two days was "A mind blowing experience, thank you, we have a lot of work to do".

Philippe Lefebvre travelled all the way from Madrid in Spain to attend and commented "We thought we knew our business, industry and where we were going. We were wrong! Thank you John and Kevin for opening our eyes to the next reality."

Neil Grant from Ferndale Garden Centre in Sheffield's reaction was "I need to stop and take a fresh perception of the business, customers and challenges. Now I have a basic plan to build on and change critical parts of the business."

The sponsors Scheurich were a major player in planning this workshop as they had indentified the need to change both in their business and the industry, Peter Taylor, from Scheurich's  comment was "An inspirational seminar with a perfect blend of knowledge and vision.....mind blowing!!"

 After this highly successful workshop John travelled to Baltimore in the USA where one of the earlier New Vision groups are getting back together to develop their new strategies .

With all the opportunities in the garden retail sector John and Kevin believe the timing of New Vision is ideal in providing an insight into the future opportunities that are unique to the industry.
