Two Members of the Haskins team have reached the Top 10 in the GCA’s Rising Stars programme.

The GCA programme acknowledges rising stars within businesses. Each year, 10 candidates from those nominated, receive mentoring by experts in the industry.
Sarah-Jane Troop, assistant team leader at the West End caught the eye as she introduced a lawncare campaign at Haskins. It’s aim is to increase customer understanding for looking after your lawn. It also ensures that customers are buying the right products.
Sarah commented: “I’m very grateful for the opportunity to strengthen my business skills. I’m looking forward to creating new relationships with like-minded people.”
Mike Kinght, outdoor team leader at Ferndown, reached the final 10 after he introduced a houseplant-focused gift bag. It’s been very popular with Haskins’ customers.
Mike commented: “It’s humbling to be selected for the final 10. Especially coming into the process with very little retail and horticultural knowledge.
“I’m grateful to Haskins for having faith in me. I’ve learnt a tremendous amount by being part of the Rising Stars programme.”
