I took part in the Kerry LEO’s Retail Development course, and Linda was one of the key advisors. I found her insight, experience & advice to be invaluable to me when I was starting my own retail business.
If you want to be successful and sustainable in an ever changing retail environment but unsure how you can get there, you need to speak to Linda. An experienced forward thinker who knows how making changes can deliver the desired results for you, the consumer and the planet.
I own a small business as a physical therapist and was looking to hire a new member for my team. Linda put together a comprehensive interviewing plan and supported the entire end to end interview process. Linda’s support, knowledge and experience really helped with a successful hiring process whilst instilling confidence in my choice of candidate and in the hiring process going forward.
She has a very practical approach and her advice proved excellent. As a result the business is performing better with a higher number of clients and improved financial results. I would strongly recommend her and I also wish to thank her for her assistance and advice.
Just want to say a huge thank you for your help with my shop over the last few years, from the layout and lighting to branding, website and customer perceptions. Your help with the custom EPOS system was invaluable and I would have been lost without your input.
Enchanted Flowers has grown from strength to strength with your suggestions and the changes we have made. Looking forward to growing further together in the future.
The year 2016 see Midlands Simon Community passing an important milestone in that we are over 10 years delivering services to people that are homeless in the four counties of Laois, Longford, Offaly and Westmeath. Critical to our success is a range of successful fundraising initiatives and core to this is the establishment of our three charity shops.
These shops could not have been developed without the contribution of Linda Ward. She brought a cutting edge and professional approach that made our shops excel at retail and stand out in the sector. Linda’s attention to detail and evidenced based approach meant our shops grew and expanded year on year.
Linda has extensive knowledge and contacts and proved very beneficial to our initiative.
Linda was always a phone call away and was very obliging in helping us expand our shop from a 1200 sq ft to a 3500sq ft shop. Linda remains a valuable asset to the Society. We highly recommend her.
