Create Intrigue with The Art of Visual Merchandising Workshop


Visual merchandising is a cost effective and silent sales technique that can benefit all businesses.

 Ann English, founder of Create intrigue, is running a workshop in June on how to utilise the power of visual merchandising to help attract customers and increase sales.

Ann began her career creating window displays for The Body Shop, and since then has gone on to design and deliver over 500 large-scale creative projects, displays, and interactive experiences for some of the largest shopping centres across Europe. She also works with North East business owners to help turn their ideas into reality, develop their brand and expand their businesses.

During The Art of Visual Merchandising Workshop, you will learn how to effectively display your products, present your services and represent your brand to generate an interest in your business and improve sales.

This will be an interactive workshop in which you are invited to bring along your own products to display. Ann will explain the main principles of visual merchandising using real life examples and demonstrations. The knowledge gained will be captured within your personalised Visual Merchandising Workbook to create an action plan for your business. You will put into practice the techniques shown with hands-on time to create your own unique eye-catching display.

You will leave feeling empowered and confident in your abilities, with the skills to display your products for maximum impact, and be inspired to create exciting innovative displays.
