Day One

We will lecture on the importance of branding to your business. Each student will create their own branding boards, present them to Tallulah Rose and receive feedback and guidance. This exercise is ideal for you if you are at the beginning of your business branding or if you are looking to rebrand your business. It may be a while since you launched your business and your branding ideas may have changed, as it sometimes does over time.

Day Two

Accounting and business banking. We have representatives from an accountancy firm and a high street bank to give advice about the financial side of your business. It gives you the opportunity to ask questions of both institutions, gaining insights prior to launching your business. If you already have your own business, you will find this useful in terms of learning how to gain the most from your existing accountant or business banking system. 

Costing – we guide you through a costing formula and discuss mark-up and profit percentages.  

Competitive shopping – you will learn the importance of knowing you’re customer. You will visit local florist shops and carry out a competitive shop.

Day Three

This busy day not only includes a New Covent Garden Flower market tour but a flower business session with Gus Cavanagh from Augustus Bloom.

Gus will then guide you through his personal/practical approach to running a flower business and will finish up with a flowery demo.

Day Four

Business planning. Whether you are launching a new business or have an established business, having an up to date business plan is essential. Whether you are seeking external funding or whether your business plan is only for internal use, it’s vital to your business success. We break down the business plan section by section, enabling you to understand the information required to go into your plan.  

Day Five

Website workshop – using an easy to use software platform we show how to build you own website (for free!) The Tallulah Rose Flower School website was originally built this way along with many of our previous students too!
