Partner up for Category & Business Advice

For over 10 years, Partners for Growth has been providing independent retailers with simple, free and unbiased advice to help improve sales in-store.  The programme prides itself in working in partnership with retailers and with the support of the Retailer Advisory Panel, Partners for Growth is taking it its advice directly into stores by launching Partners in Action.

Partners in Action, in association with Independent Retail News and TalkingRetail.com will give three lucky retailers the opportunity to benefit from the retail expertise of our Unilever Category Experts and an award-winning member of our Retailer Advisory Panel who will give you invaluable advice on making the most of your business. 

If you would like to receive a visit from Unilever’s Partners for Growth team and mentoring from members of the Retailer Advisory Panel then get in touch.

Nick Widdowson, Unilever Partners for Growth controller, says: “Our previous retailer mentoring activities have made a real difference, not just to the retailers’ stores, but to their lives as well. That’s why we urge retailers to enter, so they can benefit from this free business advice.”


If you would like to benefit from bespoke advice from Unilever’s Partners for Growth experts, store visits and mentoring from members of the Retailer Advisory Panel, please get in touch.

“Being mentored really did change my life! Not only did I learn so much from Partners for Growth and the Panel members about improving my business, it taught me to try new things to see what impact they had.  Now I really enjoy retailing and feel much more in control of my business than ever before. I was thrilled when I was recognized as a Top 100 Retailer and now find myself giving advice to other retailers when at the Cash & Carry!”
