Retail Seminar 2014

Retail Seminar 2014 - Team 3

Date: 3rd December 2014, Wednesday

It was our team's first event, and a major one too. With industry guests and Nanyang Polytechnic Year 2 & 3 students in the Event/Retail specialization attending, we had no room for huge mistakes to happen that day.

With the hand-over notes given to us from the previous Team 3, we were able to start preparing with minimal hiccups involved.


Preparing to paste the industry guests' name tags on the chairs

We were privileged to have guest speakers from Samsung, SPRING Singapore, Outdoor Venture, Charles & Keith, and Soo Kee Jewellery who came down to Nanyang Polytechnic to give their insights of how it is like working and being part of the retail industry.

 The seminar ended successfully with the last speaker from Soo Kee Jewellery who hyped up the whole auditorium with his interesting and enjoyable presentation. After all the presentations ended, there was a Question & Answer (Q&A) session for the students to ask any burning questions that they had.

Overall, it was a successful event without any major hiccups. Everyone executed their individual roles flawlessly during the event. Without the strong teamwork and hard work we had, and the thorough planning done by the previous team 3, the Retail Seminar would not have been a success. It was a wonderful experience for us Team 3 to be involved in preparing for such a major event.
