Development programmes run by retailers for retailers. 

OSS Retail provides talented retail professionals with the opportunity to become outstanding retail leaders.

 

Our range of programmes create the conditions for delegates to be at their best and to stretch their talents. We do this through a series of challenging work programmes created by a network of experienced retailers and subject matter experts.

 

We also provide the unique opportunity for large and small retailers from across the UK and internationally to learn together and from one another. Year on year, both leading retail PLC’s and independent retailers send their top talent to our cost effective development programmes.
