Ted has been in retail for over 25 years and brings a wealth of retail and management experience to bear on the challenges of retail start-ups in our current environment. His hindsight and methods, however, are as fresh as today.
Ted has acquired a Certificate from New Directions Training Association, specializing in Successful Contracting & Consulting, with a focus on Retail Environments. He has earned a Diploma from Community Futures Development Corporation on Small Business Start-Ups and has a Diploma in Business Administration with a focus on E-Commerce Management with Vancouver Career College.
Ted has built and owned various retail stores over his 25 years in retail including building Lucky Loonies Dollar Plus Store in Chilliwack, 100 Pennies Dollar Plus Store, Smart Liquidators Liquidation Store. Ted spent 12 years with Dollar Giant helping the company expand across Canada. He has just completed a couple years helping The Salvation Army thrive and succeed in Chilliwack.
He inspires new businesses owners with his knowledge of the retail sector and helps them develop into profitable business owners. His hindsight on new and innovative ideas are second to none.
His Associates bring with them a broad base of knowledge in fields such as Retail Sales, Retail Management, Accounting Methods, and Franchise Operations.
Ted and his Associates have been training retail sales associates and their Managers for over 20 years. From the beginning we have believed that those who work in retail have traditionally been considered under-skilled, under-motivated and underpaid, were capable of much more. However, we also realized that in order to achieve more, they would require more, much more training than they have been historically receiving. Ted believes that this is a must for retail businesses to succeed.
