Retail Academy has changed my paradigm on how I relate with customers – Ofure Rey Siakpere

The programme was indeed wonderful. I am so excited to be part of the graduands. I was able to know what retail is all about and the need for personal commitment, determination and passion. This programme has added a whole lot to me. It changed my paradigm on how I relate with customers. Now I can express love to my external customers not only my internal customers. I am now passionate not only to my internal customers who are my employees, but also my external customers. I learned that these people are part of my life, they are not strangers to me at all. I have have learnt thet putting myself in their shoes helps me more to give them more value for their monies. I also learned that retail is about the customer satisfaction and happiness. It is also about the business profitability, growth and sustainability. There are times you have to sacrifice to make your customers happy because when you do that you gain customers’ repeat business, loyalty and positive advocacy.

And when it comes to acquiring knowledge about retail business and how to start and run a successful retail business or achieve a successful turnaround of your ailing retail business, then Retail Academy is the right place for you.

Retail Academy was put together as a way of supporting the retail industry in Nigeria and Nigeria in general. To date the Academy have graduated 2 sets of from the Retail Training & Internship Program (RTIP) – A program that train the unemployed and support them in getting retail jobs. Many are already gainfully employed and now have a means of livelihood. In addition, those graduating today from the Retail Entrepreneurship Development Program (REDP) are setting up retail businesses that will in turn provide employment to many Nigerians. This will go a long way in supporting the government to reduce unemployment in the country.”
