The retail Mentoring Programme gave us a great platform to understand the Licensing world. It also  gave us the opportunity to network and connect  with Licensors, Suppliers  & Partners. Importantly, from this, we made relationships along with getting some great contacts to help promote our brand  - Operations Director, Toymaster.

Why brand licensing is crucial for retailers

With bottom lines getting squeezed and competition more fierce than ever before, retailers are under increasing pressures to stand out in the marketplace and deliver products that consumers love, time and time again. Licensing can help to address these issues. Brands have an existing loyal fanbase that can help to differentiate your proposition.

The Retail Mentoring Programme will arm you with the tools you need to make informed decisions and successfully negotiate licensing deals to expand your offering on store shelves.
