Learn to increase your profits and attract more attention with better design

Signs and POP materials are silent communicators that advertise your products to customers. Proper packaging, labeling, POP materials and signage can make or break your restaurant, foodservice or retail operation. Potential customers decide whether or not to enter your establishment simply by reading a sign or checking out your packaging, without ever trying any of your products.

In this highly interactive workshop, Diane Chiasson, FCSI, President of Chiasson Consultants is going to teach you how to gain customers and improve the value of your brand with proper packaging and labeling techniques, as well as how to write, design, and where to place POP materials and signage. Diane has over 30 years of experience in the restaurant and retail industry, and she is going to show you how to send out the best message about your products to your customers. You have the opportunity to bring in your own labels, tags, POP materials and packaging for Diane to review and critique personally.

In this workshop you learn how to:


  • Create high-perceived value products with proper packaging and labeling
  • Build strong brand strategy, brand identity and brand recognition
  • Decide what types of signage are suitable to your operation
  • Create easy-to-read and easy-to-understand signs and labels
  • Write sales-inducing copy for POP materials and signage
  • Understand how to design proper labels and POP materials using attractive fonts, colours and styles
  • Strategically place POP materials and signage in the right places for maximum exposure
  • Label all your products properly
  • Understand the psychology of a shopper’s mind
  • Create merchandising and cross-merchandising opportunities

Upon completion of our workshop you receive a personalized certificate. You can use this certificate to further your expertise in your professional career, or use it in your portfolio or on your website.
