Do you want to raise your profile, turnover and profit? Become the leading go-to destination bridal boutique that every bride wants to buy their gown from? And for you to be closing that sale on the first appointment? Is that a YES?…We thought so!
All The Pretty by Charlotte Balbier presents ‘The Discovery Academy For Bridal Retailers’.
Charlotte Balbier built and sold her award-winning multi seven-figure bridal brand before the age of 40. Charlotte is one of the UK’s leading female entrepreneurs who now coaches and consults creative and wedding businesses on how to create unforgettable brands and endless success. Since launching her new brand, her VIP days, coaching and events are fully booked. Charlotte also appears on many stages as a motivational speaker with a rising profile that is making waves in the coaching world.
Charlotte’s contacts and connections within the bridal world are impressive as she has direct access to all of the top go-to experts. So it is no surprise that Charlotte has on-board not one, but three wedding experts for the day...
Amanda Wyatt was born into the bridal world as her parents owned several bridal boutiques and they also designed and manufactured gowns on a grand scale from 1960 to the mid 90s. Alan Wyatt’s legacy lives on as he is known as one of the biggest, most loved and respected leading pioneers in the bridal world. Amanda is also Charlotte’s mother and they worked alongside each other for two decades with their seven brands within the Balbier Wyatt empire. With three generations, this dynasty of bridal experts were the top of the bridal game.
The Amanda Wyatt brand was a multi award-winning collection, famous for the perfect fit and second-to-none customer service. It was Amanda’s warm, personable touch and extensive knowledge that gained her a loyal following of over 200 retailers, who year-on-year bought the collections.
Amanda has many gifts, zones and genius but her biggest is her ability to close a sale on every bride that walks through the door. It’s usually on the first appointment and always within an hour… she has been known to do it in 20 minutes! Amanda will be walking you through how to convert all of your appointments into sales.
Amanda is also an open book and has a lifetime of experience, knowledge and expertise that she is ready to share. Are you ready to start making more profit? Maximise on add-on sales and adding in new sales revenues to your business model? Amanda is all about the bottom line and will be helping you to really focus on this.
