Retail consultancy Retail Cities Global Inc has announced a collaborative project with The Total Negotiation Group (TNG), which will see the hosting of four retail educational classroom series in the 2022/2023 period.
Each series will be designed to enable FMCG leaders to get practical information on changes to the key customer landscape, with coaching on approaches to commercial and negotiation strategies, in a safe and skills-based learning environment.
The four series will contain three sessions for paid members, and will cover EU Cross Border, Russia, Turkey, and the UK.

"We at Retail Cities have successfully been able to help a wide-range of clients by taking an agile and case-specific approach to all of the engagements we delivered in 2021. These personnel appointments reflect our desire to support clients where they need the strongest senior thought leadership and mentorship, alongside adding capacity for us to continue to deliver in a flexible and case-by-case manner."
