"I've just finished the 'Smart Strategies for Market Success' course and I'm so pleased that I did. I'm new to the market scene as a designer and needed guidance and this course that Cat runs is perfect. She covers all aspects necessary to set up and run a successful market stall. Common sense information clearly explained with examples and words of wisdom from her personal experience. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and highly recommend it. "
"I found the course very easy to follow because the topics were all very well organised into manageable sections. The amount of information given in each one was perfect so as not to be overwhelming. The lessons were presented in a logical order so the steps could be implemented throughout the duration of the course. Cat teaches from experience and has a great deal of knowledge on how to run market stalls effectively. The part of the course that I found most useful was to do with having a focal point of the display that draws in the customers eye. I also liked her discussion on how to encourage future sales after the market has ended by use of coupons and email lists. I have started putting her advice into practice on my Salamanca Market stall and am noticing great results. I highly recommend this course to new stall holders as well as people who may have been participating in markets for many years."
