Mind your dress code

Salaseini Vosamana

A WELL presented appearance is very important in any line of work because it speaks volumes of the organisation we work for.

Northern Development Program manager Waisele Tuidama made the comment to more than 40 participants at the Capacity Building for Women Market Vendors workshop in Labasa yesterday.

Mr Tuidama said such positive appearance also depicted the quality of farm produce women sold at the market.

"When you're doing business, be careful of how you present yourself and how you handle your customers," he told participants.

"Be mindful of your dress code. Your customers are very important and make sure you serve them with the right attitude in order for them to buy from you."

Mr Tuidama said it was also important for the vendors to keep samples of their produce to prevent misunderstandings.

"Some customers are very particular with what they buy, they usually press fruits, ask vendors to untie vegetable bundles or even break waka (grog) to examine its quality.

"But this sometimes annoys vendors and to prevent this from happening, it's wise to have a sample ready," he said.
