Sam has been kicking off on Make it Happen’s new workshops
THE SIGNAGE BOOTCAMP and ON THE FRONTLINE
Arming her recruits with plenty of creative bullets, product knowledge and sales techniques to climb up the sales ladder!
No doubt you know about the Make it Happen workshops, so what does the new 2020 armoury have to offer?
Well here is a quick rundown and a few highlights to give you an idea before you sign up to give your team a boost for 2020.
With people joining the industry from all backgrounds or even having been around a while! Having a workshop that can teach ‘the things you just need to know’ and help to enthuse your team can make a massive difference to morale as well as to the turnover and profit of a company.
THE SIGNAGE BOOTCAMP detained our CPD accreditation and gave it a promotion for 2020 with the additional element of getting involved with practical applications meaning you really understand the craftsmanship and the value of what you are selling.
Covering the wide variety of everyday products to new additions to the market, Sam effortlessly guides the attendees through a comprehensive morning before getting the PPE on and heading into the workshop to give a full understanding of how the products are made.
Training is one of the key aspects that drove Sam to set up the consultancy and seeing the lack and need for standardised signage training. The Make it Happen workshops were created to support the industry and give a quality level for those who want to stand out from the crowd.
And this is exactly what THE SIGNAGE BOOTCAMP does!
Taking a large soldier step forward, the ON THE FRONTLINE looks to encourage Sales teams, Estimators and Project Managers to form relationships with their clients. Looking deeper into the needs and wants of the customer alongside the technical knowledge required to form those meaningful leads and sales.
The workshop covers methods of increasing sales turnover and profits, improving efficiency and time management and nurturing relationships amongst many other business attributes.
You only need to check out these smiley faces to see how enjoyable the soldiers found the day!
Along with feedback and testimonials that you can see below, the Make it Happen Ladies could soon see that the new workshop addition was a hit and no doubt Sam will take it from strength to strength.
"Visited Make it Happen On the Frontline course yesterday 09.01.20, The course was a great help to me regarding the effective use of time management, and also gave me an insight into the sales side of signage. Along with hands on activities that allowed me to see what problems sign fitters could face on site. I found the course very interesting with an excellent balance of classroom,to hands on activities. Sam was very knowledgeable on the sign industry and current trends. Sam’s light hearted approach to the course along with an excellent product knowledge, and a nice lunch!! What more can you ask well done all involved"

Training in 2019
Not only have we devoured a lot of cake on the MiH training days but we have welcomed over 800 delightful delegates from far and wide (Mauritius and Nigeria being our furthest travellers)! Hopefully we have sent all our guests away with the knowledge and enthusiasm to Make it Happen! We promise we didn’t have to force them to look happy in the photos 😊
Of course we are never happy to settle, so we decided to give more to the Signage Community and add something to our arsenal for 2020…...
Our New course for 2020 has been announced this month to help the sales side of the industry, to take a step back and to stop and think do we really know what a sign needs to do for our client? Looking at increasing sales through knowledge and therefore developing deeper connections.
We haven’t stopped there! In the namesake style and yet again proof that we make it happen, we were the proud British Signage Award co-sponsors 2019. To see our name up in lights on the stage was a shining moment for the team.
Ladies of MiH had some big personal wins too
There was an office move for the ladies to plan and decorate! Along with Zoe moving house and no doubt making space to welcome her new bundle of joy. I think that means our ladies all need a well-earned rest over the festive period, (until baby arrives that is!)
Make it Happen will be closing midday Friday 20th Dec (so Sam can crack open a beer or 10!) and will be reopening at 8:30am Thursday 2nd January 2020.
There is only one last thing that is most important for us to say to the 800 training course attendees, to the supporters, suppliers, friends and family that have given constant support to us MiH Ladies this year.
you Made it Happen!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR
You have a client that would like a brick feature wall without the weeks of disruption to their premises and they don’t want to spend for labour or material costs too.
What do you offer?
A tiled brick finish feature wall of course! With a simple installation at a fraction of the cost, time and disruption!
Make it Happen have a fascinating range of their Tiling Products that allow you to create an authentic looking finish without the hassle of the traditional products and installation.
Made from a composite board with a rigid Polyurethane body and special fire-resistant acrylic surface, these tiles give fantastic heat and acoustic insulation properties making them great for any environment, internally or externally without the risk or rot!
For years, the only way to achieve such looks were to use the real thing, que builders sucking their teeth at the chance to quote for hours of work and expensive products!
Time to change that with our Tiling Products which require no specialist skills or tools, very little mess, they are lightweight and easy to handle with one man installation which gives you instant results.
Now you can use these easy to install products which are precision moulded from the original source. Choose from English Brick, London Brick, Country Rustic Brick amongst a long list of others.
Even better news, there are a variety of finishes available.
Choose from Brick, Slate, Wood and varied stone finishes, with new products being developed as you read this.
Having seen the wide variety of finishes, you will be pleased to know that the ladies at Make it Happen are here to guide you through the design and installation from start to finish. Be it a large or small project, we are here armed with the technical information and years of professional knowledge.
Don’t forget we entertain the (almost) impossible! In fact, we are proud that we can think outside of the box to be able to achieve. This comes from fantastic friends (aka. suppliers) that we have worked with for many years to build up strong relationships, which, in turn, helps you.
This fantastic substrate is perfect to add your signage on to as well as decorate with, with it’s hyper realistic finish to it being lightweight and easy to install.
It might be that you want to push the boundaries by adding Neon Effect Illumination to make a #marketing worthy sign to shine bright on your client’s social media accounts! Making your marketing work for you through your signage having an added reason to be epic.

Wednesday 11th September 2019
Today brought five very different individuals together; a designer, fitter, marketing manager and two salesmen. This isn’t the start of a poor joke, but a perfect example of the breadth of individuals that the Make it Happen Education Day can benefit.
Whether you have been in the industry for 5 minutes or 25 years, there really is something for everyone.
