Market-Place Selling is a Resounding Success

Market-Place Selling is a Resounding Success

One word sums up the success of the recent business event: “excellent”. In total 40 students were involved, working in teams of four. Each team had a unique marketing idea, from selling leavers hoodies, to some excellent homemade cupcakes, oreo biscuit milkshakes, (which proved very popular) and warm somoa.

It was fascinating to witness how the students grew in confidence over the two days. A real belief in their special product generated an engagement that was genuine and heartfelt.

It was a steep learning curve: first, the groups had to predict the demand for their merchandise to make sure they had enough produce for two days of sales; secondly, they had to become adept at varying their selling techniques, as competition from their peers ratcheted-up and seemed to take market customers away from their stall and wares. Finally, at the end of the selling process, the students had to cash-up accurately. Profit is the amount earned over and above the out-goings, so precise cashing up was imperative if they were to know how much profit they had made.

The staff, Mr Merreywether and Mr Wilson, are delighted with the outcome of this initiative; delighted with the mature behaviour of their business students; delighted that all the effort has raised much needed funds for the One Can Trust. The students showed an ability to support each other, work in a team, be organised and above all show a professionalism beyond their years. GMS are proud of them.
