KitchenAid Offers Webinar Training Effort For Gourmet Stores

KitchenAid will conduct a holiday webinar entitled Gifts That Share The Season, on Thursday November 19 as part of its expanding training program for independent gourmet store operators. Originally an in-store training program the program was expanded at the March 2009 Housewares Show, where KitchenAid held on-site training and education sessions at its booth.
The company expanded that effort to include its first webinar on October 21st. That session included 15 retailer participants in a 30-minute session that enabled retailers to participate and interact via their computer. The interactive session, designed to replicate KitchenAid’s in-store training sessions, enabled participants to pose questions, make comments and interact with trainers. The company is continuing to expand the program and develop topics for future events.
