This year’s Independent Achievers Academy launched on April 4, 2014 in London.

The audience included many of the UK’s top brands who promote the IAA, as well as retailers such as Raaj Chandarana, who explained how the IAA helped him to grow sales by £2,000 a week. They also heard from Cardiff retailer Mark Dudden on the difference the Academy had made to his shop.
