Diamond jewellery manufacturer Andre Michael’s sales team are back on the road in response to requests from retailers and are holding meetings in person under stringent safety measures.
Sales personnel have been meeting with retailers at their premises since August following the easing of lockdown restrictions due to COVID-19.
The meetings have taken place in a variety of locations, including Liverpool, Leeds, Glasgow and Dublin.
“The sales team at Andre Michael are starting to work not only via virtual presentations, but are also securing ‘in person’ appointments in response to demand from retailers,” said John Reid, head of sales.
“Strict safety precautions are being taken as expected. Hand sanitisers are being used regularly, including on entry and exit to retail premises and during product presentations. We use face coverings and conduct presentations behind screens. Private rooms are used where possible for meetings. Sometimes meetings take place outside of business hours.
“The team are ‘back on the road’ more and more. This is an important part of the continued growth of our business. We are playing our part in helping our retail partners stay fully engaged with their customers.”
