Do you agree that nobody knows it all?
As the world becomes more complex and ever changing at a pace never known before, it is becoming extremely challenging for a CEO, a Designer and senior executives to embrace the new world.

Building a Fashion Brand successfully requires a vision, general management expertise, leadership skills as well as sales, marketing, financial, human resource, wholesale, retail, international, production, buying, supply chain ...expertise together with an understanding of key markets like the USA, Europe, India, Asia, Japan...

At GFM, we act as mentor to provide expert advice from strategy to execution. We work with the Designer, CEO and the Management Team and we train senior executives as well as front line staff.
Are those questions relevant to you.
