Pinnacle Performance Company and the British Retail Consortium (BRC) have teamed up to offer personal and business development courses for consortium members. The BRC launches its professional training academy this autumn, and Pinnacle’s courses headline the October and November offerings.
The BRC is one of the world’s leading trade associations, representing retailers of all sizes and products. The consortium is a worldwide political voice for commercial providers and a training and certification organisation for its members. The BRC’s partnership with Pinnacle is mutually beneficial and a significant step forward in Pinnacle’s campaign to increase its presence in the European market.
“The BRC is a world class organisation, and we’re excited to be working with them,” said Dave Lewis, Pinnacle’s President and CEO. “Much of what they do is about maintaining quality and sustaining excellence, and we’re honoured to be chosen as a partner that mirrors those qualities. For what Pinnacle has been trying to accomplish in Europe, BRC’s academy seemed like a perfect fit for both sides. We’re eager to see where this takes us.”
Pinnacle’s contribution to the October/November academy curriculum features multiple classes in presentation and communication skills. At launch, academy events will occur outside Watford, England.
Keith Evans, Chief Executive of BRC Trading, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with such a professional training and development organization, and the master class courses offered by Pinnacle will benefit many of our members.”
