Calderdale-born business expert, Kate Hardcastle, will visit Halifax to run a ‘Creating a Sizzling Sales Success’ event in collaboration with Welcome to Yorkshire.

The seminar will help businesses move on to the next level and cover topics including creating an excellent experience for the customer and understanding their needs to increase sales – something especially important during tough economic times.

Kate, a retail and commercial expert, is a regular contributor and industry commentator on BBC, ITV and Sky News.

She said: “This is about drawing on experience to help our Yorkshire businesses go on to the next level and raise the bar nationally – going from good to great when it comes to retail and customer service.

“It may be that this helps a business change a few of their ways of working or just do one thing different, all with the aim of building an even better business.”

The events are free for Welcome to Yorkshire members who can register for tickets here at
