In this week’s Money & Business Report, the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce hosts its next workshop for small and micro-sized enterprises (SME). Three consultants will share their expertise to help business owners learn tips, tricks and best practices in areas related to customer relationships, strategic planning, and social media marketing. The workshop is free and runs from 5:30-7:30pm at the Chamber office in Governor’s Square on Thursday 28 April.
Workshop facilitator Trina Savage says today’s consumers are sophisticated and need a reason to spend their money locally when they have options from stores and websites around the world. Ms. Savage says workshops like hers help business owners increase the likelihood of a positive customer experience.
“There are many tools which you can put into practice,” she said, “For example: how you display your merchandise, how you move your inventory, identifying best sellers and making sure people can find them so that your customers are satisfied and will encourage them to purchase more in your store.”
