About   Karen Green

You may be wondering why I have launched this course and what qualifies me to deliver it?


I am so totally and unbelievably passionate UK retailing that it is almost an obsession. 


I was born into retail - my father ran a department store in Newbury and from the age of 5 I was involved in the store, first doing fashion shows and then as a Saturday girl.  I went on to study retail marketing at university, was a buyer at both Tesco and Boots and commercial director for several food businesses.  Most recently I have been mentoring and supporting a number of food businesses to launch into new routes to market including UK retailers, food service and others.

But I never stop learning and am dedicated to expanding my own knowledge - this year I have been on online training programmes, Tony Robbins business mastery, speaker training and others.  As a result, I keep my ideas and knowledge, current and up to date.  


I also have a wealth of results – read about my successful clients on the Testimonials page.  Not every client wants global domination but each client wants to deliver their vision for their brand and I help them achieve that.


You too can have success in the UK market place with Pitch Perfect!

Great to finally learn how to approach retailers and how to pitch to them!

“It changed our entire mindset and the way we think about approaching retailers, and then how we would actually pitch our products to them. It has also alerted us to all of the pitfalls and mistakes we might have made while trying to get a listing, potentially saving us a lot of money and endless headaches”
