Learning from the Best
24 January 2007
In this case MFI, IKEA and others.
The Young Enterprise company I advise have spent most of their spare time over the last month building more stock for their upcoming Trade Fair at the Bristol Galleries. These are prime sales opportunities and place them alongside other companies rather than in a school event. Having lots of good quality stock is critical and this takes time and is rather boring after you’ve made a couple hundred bracelets, rings and earrings.
How about if we package up sets of beads and elastic and let people make their own!
Genius, and ready for the Mother’s Day rush where people will be looking for original gift ideas that they can personalise!
All I had to do was draw the parallels and they were even more chuffed that they’d arrived in 4 months at business practices it took MFI decades to work out.
