Lichfield District Council is hosting a free virtual workshop for local retail businesses to explore how, following their re-opening, they can enhance their performance.

The Business Recovery & Performance Growth workshop will take place virtually via Zoom on Thursday 20 August from 6pm to 7pm.

It will be delivered on behalf of the council by The Retail Group, who will provide practical support and ideas to help shops based in Lichfield District.

Topics to be covered include changes to customer behaviour, how to expand customer services, and how to attract new customers.

The workshop will also explore opportunities to create impact, improve promotions, and deliver collective activity with neighbouring businesses. There will also be opportunities to ask questions and get advice and ideas.

Councillor Liz Little, Cabinet Member for Major Projects & Economic Development, said:

“I am pleased we’ve been able to link up with The Retail Group to offer this useful workshop. It will give our local retailers ideas, advice, and offer the chance to ask questions of experts in the field. However, places are limited so don’t forget to book your free place as soon as possible.”

The Business Recovery & Performance Growth workshop is being funded by the Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership.
