This past weekend, Brisbane based retail sales specialists Alba International attended an industry event designed to develop leadership skills.
Held on Sunday June 24th, sales and marketing professionals from all over Australia travelled to Brisbane for the exclusive event. Situated in the Central Business District, the 4-Star Next Hotel Brisbane was the chosen venue due to its central location, which provided the ideal setting for travelling delegates.
There were a number of guest speakers at the event, including award-winning entrepreneurs and business owners, with one speaker flying in from the UK. Each speaker addressed delegates on many specialist subjects, sharing knowledge, advice and guidance to help those in attendance develop their knowledge and skill set and learn new strategies to apply to progress their business development.
One of Alba Internationals senior managers was asked to speak at the event, sharing experience and insight on the following subjects; high-performance training, thinking big, developing sales skills and working smarter – not harder.
“It’s always an honour to be asked to speak at industry events. I am passionate about helping aspiring entrepreneurs to develop their leadership and business skills and becoming successful businessmen and women,” commented Mr Watson.
After the day’s events had come to a close, attendees had the opportunity to socialise and converse during a cocktail networking event. At Alba International, they encourage their employees to capitalise on every opportunity to add to their network. “The power of a strong and diverse network should never be underestimated, it’s important to find like-minded professionals who you can turn to for advice and guidance to assist you on your entrepreneurial journey,” commented Mr Watson.
Alba International believe that every successful business is built on strong leadership foundations, and one of the main attributes they look for when it comes to talent scouting is leadership capabilities. “We acquired some incredible information from the speakers this past weekend, and it’s definitely given me pause for thought. There are a number of new strategies that we will look to implement which I believe will play a key role in helping us to expand into more stores in the near future,” commented Mr Watson.
Alba International is home to the next generation of sales specialists that champions excellence and professionalism. With so much choice, consumers need to feel reassured that brands are catering to their needs. The firm regularly attends industry events as they are committed to development and education is an integral part in that.
