'Florist Get Togethers 2017 - 'Getting down to business'

The theme this year is 'getting down to business' and introducing the 40-30-20-10 concept at this roadshow.

40% - Creating - 'what you do with the flowers' 

We're not going to teach you how to suck eggs - only you know what your client wants and the style appropriate in keeping with your business.

30% - 'How to source good flowers'

We're going to be blunt - a florist has two functions; to create great designs with quality flowers & to make money doing it!

20% - 'How to price up and sell flowers'

The number 1 hot topic from last years florist's feedback.

10% - How the BFA act on your behalf

Often asked and now explained.
