Althea Wiles is Offering In-person, Staff-Training Workshops to Florist Shops Everywhere

Althea Wiles with J Althea Creative Consulting opens 2023 calendar dates for staff-training educational workshops for florist shop owners in her home state of Arkansas and beyond.

Althea Wiles is a florist business consultant for J Althea Creative Consulting with over twenty years of professional experience in the floral design industry under her florist business, Rose of Sharon Floral Design Studio. Wiles has announced that she is opening up her 2023 calendar for staff-training workshops offered to florist shops everywhere. The staff-training workshops may be hosted in the J Althea Creative studio based in the Ozark Mountains region of the United States or on-location at any florists’ store or venue. These are in-person sessions and designed to help florists train new and existing employees. There are also virtual programs offered by Wiles through one-on-one sessions, digital downloads and webinars. This gives florists options in an effort for the J Althea Creative team to meet each florist and their staff where they are at and according to their current needs. Wiles also teaches classes in the horticulture department at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.

Florists can receive in-person and on-location florist education in the following ways:

  • Open houses 
  • Demonstrations
  • Staff-training sessions
  • Speaking engagements 
  • Conventions
  • Boutique events 

“As a busy florist, it is often hard to find the time for staff-training sessions. New employees obviously need training, but even seasoned employees need continuing education in the ever-changing environment of the floral industry. Our programs and workshops allow each client to determine what curriculum is best for their situation, whether that is in-person or virtual training,” says Althea Wiles, owner and florist consultant at J Althea Creative.

“Althea is very experienced and a great mentor/instructor. She has built my confidence level and understands completely where I need the most support,” says Christina Ambriz of Anaphora Designs.
