Women in Convenience
In 2022, we launched our Women in Convenience initiative, which aims to recognise, support and empower the fantastic women working in independent stores across the UK and Ireland.
In 2023, the Women in Convenience programme will consist of an on-line hub of resources, quarterly newsletters to our Women in Convenience group, news specials in our print titles RN and Retail Express addressing key issues such as symbol group policies, retailer focus groups and an annual event for learning, building relationships and recognising female talent within the sector.
RN 30 under Thirty
In 2021, we launched RN’s 30 under Thirty initiative, to shine a light on the rising stars working in independent retail, those who are making a real difference – to their communities, their customers or to their own bottom-line.
The campaign culminates in a celebratory event, which is a fantastic opportunity for the winning retailers and supporters to network and share ideas, as well as being the launch pad for the following year’s campaign.
Independent Achievers Academy (IAA)
The IAA culminates in a Learning & Development Festival, an event designed to inspire and equip independent retailers with fresh ideas, inspiration, and new business connections.
The event includes:
• Masterclasses from leading suppliers with a focus on how retailers can capitalise on key industry trends and tackle the latest challenges in our sector.
• Focus Groups allowing retailers to discuss areas of their business in-depth with fellow retailers and industry experts.
• Hands-on Trade Exhibition where suppliers can connect with retailers and demonstrate new products and services that retailers can introduce into their stores
• Networking opportunities so that you can build important business relationships with retailers and fellow suppliers from across the UK and Ireland.
