The annual Blacks managers’ conference recently took place on the majestic shores of Derwent Water in the beautiful Lake District.

This gathering of Blacks managers, buyers, merchandisers and key staff from all around the country was an ideal opportunity for presentations on business procedures, sharing ideas, team building and product training.

Product training was where Amanda, Nick and Mike from Bramwell International stepped in to provide brand and product knowledge on Meindl footwear and Source hydration systems.

During the day, instruction was given on Meindl and Source’s history, materials used, construction, benefits over competitors and aftercare to prolong the life of the products on the shelves.

The following day, after a full day in the classroom, the Blacks staff enjoyed time out on the hills taking part in canyoning, via ferretta, canoeing and rock climbing adding to the whole outdoor experience.

Meindl and Source products are now available in Blacks stores throughout the country.
