Lakeland team to speak at BHETA webinar

BHETA is to hold another of its retailer networking webinars, this time with Lakeland. The event will take place on January 19 at 10.30 am and five members of the buying team will be involved.

Philippa Simons, head of buying, will provide an update on the latest developments in the Lakeland business overall. Simons will then be supported by Carly Bullock – Cleaning, Laundry & Home, Leanne Murphy – Baking, Kathryn Farrell – Cooking, and Rebecca Murphy – Seasonal.

The event will provide an excellent insight into this iconic 50-year-old retailer’s plans and buying strategy.  There will also be an opportunity for delegates to ask the team individual questions. As one of the UK’s home shopping pioneers, Lakeland offers an unrivalled collection of creative kitchenware, practical time and effort-saving ideas for the home, and inspiring gifts from all over the world.  The Lakeland buyers search for innovative products that make life easier, before putting them through a rigorous selection and testing process to ensure they meet exacting standards.

While this is a BHETA member-only event, non-members who would like to attend can contact Seema Grantham, BHETA’s sector manager for housewares and small domestic appliances on 07946 078566.

Seema Grantham said: “The chance to speak directly to so many members of the Lakeland team really is a great opportunity, and we are expecting an excellent turnout to hear the presentation.”
