Consumer goods consultancy and drinks association Corporate Partner Real World Marketing has announced the launch of the Australian Grocery Academy, a training program designed to build the skills and capabilities of FMCG suppliers and manufacturers.
Created in partnership with the Australian Food and Grocery Council, the Academy aims to boost the skill set of sales personnel, category managers and brand teams through a series of modules and courses. These include category and commercial management, advanced customer management and negotiation, as well as personal performance, and takes 15 months to complete.
While the program has been designed for the grocery sector, a growing number of drinks companies have expressed interest in enrolling staff after recognising the potential it provides their employees to enhance their work performance.
The inaugural programs will commence in Melbourne from 9th to 11th May, and in Sydney from 15th – 17th May. An introductory offer of 15% discount on the full program is available until 21 April 2017. For details on courses and how to apply, head to www.theaustraliangroceryacademy.com.au .
