For spring / early summer we have a series of three webinars planned to share more detail about our 3 step approach to profitable growth through:
Mastering rebate accounting and maximising profit from rebate deals;
Being prepared for and executing on smarter supplier negotiations;
Collaborating with suppliers for mutually profitable growth.
Throughout the series we will be providing examples for builders' merchants, plumbing, electrical and HVAC suppliers, buying groups, other wholesale distributors and retailers based on our experiences in the UK, USA and Canada.
These webinars are aimed at those businesses for whom rebate claims make up a significant proportion of their profit margin, and will be presented by business leaders and experts in rebate management and procurement.
CEOs, MDs, heads of finance and IT, commercial directors, rebate accountants, audit and compliance directors should all find the content enlightening.
Details about each of the three webinars are as follows:
