**Open only to The Craft Central partners**
The iron is hottest only once a year, and it’s time to strike hard!
Personally, forecasting for Christmas feels overwhelming. Ballooned numbers seem like too much, but once I’m in the season, I feels like I didn’t prepare enough. And right after, I find myself looking forward to the next Christmas, thinking of all the things that could be better. Maybe we’re in the same boat? So, why don’t we prepare together?
Let’s put a structure to the incoming Christmas chaos!
Maximise the gifting season by having the right assortment. We’ll go through it step by step, from stocking stuffers to gift sets. We’ll discuss gifting trends, as well as minor tweaks that you can easily implement to give your product a fighting chance to be a Christmas gift.
This is a qualitative and quantitative session. You are requested bring your historical sales breakdown for October to December 2018, per item, per store. If this data is unavailable, sales for any 3 months will do. I will take you through forecasting quantities, then we will work backwards to create a production schedule and project the necessary funding.
You will be surrounded by fellow crafters and makers for a healthy, collaborative discussion!

About the Facilitator:
Hi, it’s Alexis, owner and founder of The Craft Central. After graduation, I felt that my calling is to create jobs, and I am blessed to have The Craft Central as a platform. I’ve always wanted to hold consulting sessions for small businesses. I may not be an expert, but I do have experiences to share. Plus, I can give some structure to the theories, as I literally studied business for college. I graduated Magna cum laude and Program Awardee in Ateneo, taking up Management-Honors. I’m crazy about marketing and accounting (when laziness doesn’t take over, haha!), and I know a lot of The Craft Central partners would also enjoy learning more about practical applications in their own businesses. So come join me! :)
