Welcome to the Independent Achievers Academy
Retailing success depends on you repeating the simple stuff. The difference between someone who makes a lot of money from their shop and someone who just gets by is often a result of the processes that they use.
Taking advantage of the Independent Achievers Academy programme is free. It will cost you some time and some hard work thinking about your customers and your business.
Entry also means that you are in with a chance of making the top 100 local stores as measured by the IAA and ultimately it gives you a chance of being recognised as a top UK retailer at our November gala dinner, where you will mix with great local retailers and be in with a chance of winning an award.
