CASE (1)： You are a hobbyist floral designer and may be enjoying flower arranging from time to time.However you are not very satisfied with your current situation because you do not feel you are making a difference in your floral designs. Maybe you feel there is some room for you to improve your skill so that you can more enjoy floral arranging or further satisfy yourself. If you are put in this kind of situation, one of the ways for making improvement is resume taking lessons to learn creative and unique floral decorations which you have never experienced. The key to your success in this kind of project is to find a good instructor who can flexibly work with you in order to satisfy your requirements. You may be able to learn modern or contemporary flower arrangement with which you feel quite impressed.
CASE (2)： You are currently engaged in running floral shop mainly for selling fresh flowers. However you would like to expand your business to the next level. Selling fresh flowers can bring some revenue to your shop. However offering more value-added services will bring much higher amount of revenue. If you are not yet offering wedding floral decorations, you had better consider starting this kind of service. If you are not engaged in funeral floral decorating services, how about learning funeral floral decorations so you can penetrate this market which is quite stable regardless of economic conditions ? If you do not have any corporate customers who need floral arrangement on a constant basis to decorate their office buildings, why not try to penetrate such market ? The typical example is a floral decorating services to hotels that always display floral arrangements in the entrance hall, front desk counter and also a banquet room etc. etc . In order to start offering above mentioned services, it is necessary to earn good skills of floral arrangements. Why not earn such a skill or brush up on your current skill for improving your business ?
CASE (3): You are currently engaged in offering floral decorating services to your customers such as hotels, restaurants, banks and country clubs etc. that need floral decorations on a regular basis (or from time to time). However due to limited portfolio of your floral designs, you cannot expand your business. Learning floral designs by joining a higher level of course MAY solve this problem.
CASE (4): You earned flower arranging skills long time ago. The skill itself is quite good and you can utilize such skill whenever you have good opportunities. Only because you have been away from making floral arrangement for a long period of time, it is necessary to refresh you skills AND at the same time, it is recommended to become familiar with updated floral designs that are prevailing in the market.
CASE (5): Stepping up from amateur to professional floral designer. You have been enjoying floral designs as a hobbyist so far. Now you are planning to change this hobby to a business tool. For implementing this plan, what you need to do is earning a higher level of skills PLUS broader range of portfolio so that you can comply with a request from a wide range of customers. Floral decorating services for weddings and funerals MAY be mandatory to stabilize your floral business.
