Meet the 2018 RSPA honourees
TORONTO – At this year’s Canadian Furniture Show, Home Goods Online had the privilege of interviewing the four recipients of the 2018 Retail Sale Professional Awards on camera. In their own words, they wax enthusiastically about their choice of careers, how they came to be in this business and what the future holds.
Each of four – Terry Harder of Innovative Sleep Solutions in Surrey, British Columbia (Pacific Region); Randy Shanks of Daley’s BrandSource Home Furnishings in Fredericton, New Brunswick (Atlantic Region); Marisa Deluca of La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries in Etobicoke, Ontario (Central Region); and, Brian Palethorpe of Perfect Home Furniture, Calgary, Alberta (Western Region) – were profiled in the Fall 2018 edition of the HGO Merchandiser.
In this video segment, they expand on those themes and demonstrate why they were selected. Also, Brad Geddes, president and CEO of Zucora Home – the program’s presenting sponsor – discusses why the program has become increasing popular and potentially more important.
"When you dig into the background of RSP Award nominees, you discover professionals who are passionate about what they do, believe in helping others and are driven to create success. In many cases, nominees have been doing this important work for decades but always remain open to learning how to improve,” he believes. “The Retail Sales Professional Awards is our industrywide opportunity to recognise the significant value that these key individuals provide for all of us.”
The call for entries for the 2019 RSP Awards will be made in January.
