Challenges Facing The FMCG Industry

The Fast Moving Consumer Goods industry is currently facing a number of pressing challenges.

Let Teamworking International help you overtake the competition.



Shrinking margins

With the drop in consumer spending power and the trend towards more economical brands, consumer goods companies are being forced to look for innovative ways to reduce costs, eliminate waste and enhance efficiency.

The power of retail giants

FMCGs are being increasingly squeezed by retail giants to give concessions on pricing, delivery and various other terms and conditions.  There is also increased competition from retailers as they develop their own label products and increase brand loyalty.


This is a pressing trend for the sector, as consumers demand more ethically produced “green” goods.  How will you employ green policies that can attract the growing ethical consumer market?

Effective supply chain management

In a bid to drive down costs, it’s vital your people can effectively manage your supply chain to deliver your product on time and on budget. 

Emerging markets

With reduced consumer spending power in traditional markets, FMCGs are looking to high growth emerging markets such as China, India and Brazil.  The challenge is to deliver products on a regional level, making the most effective use of resources. 

Talent development

The future success of your organisation depends on world class leaders who can effectively manage your brand portfolio and drive your company to success.  Now is the time to invest in your people to ensure you’re creating the leaders of tomorrow.

How can Teamworking International help you?

Wherever you are based in the world, we have a range of programs which can be tailor-made to suit your organisation’s exact requirements. Here are just a few examples of what we can offer you:

Leadership Development Program

We’ve worked with organisations such as Unilever and HSBC to develop their future leaders. Our program is designed to create leaders from managers, giving them the skills to unlock their true potential, drive your workforce to greatness and turn them into creative and dynamic thinkers who can bring about the kind of success your organisation is striving for. Using proven methods that translate into workplace success, we’re the market leaders in Leadership Development.

Negotiation Skills

With the need to reduce costs and squeeze margins in a highly competitive global market, it’s vital you equip your people with the most effective negotiation skills. Whether it’s local procurement or negotiating contracts with suppliers or retailers, this program will transform the ability to achieve a profitable outcome with each and every deal that’s made. In fact our delegates report an average saving of $30,000 per person in the first month following our Negotiation Skills program.

Creative Problem Solving

With the financial demands facing the FMCG sector, your people must be able to deliver creative solutions to new and longstanding problems which affect the bottom line. Using our Creative Problem Solving program we’ll show you how to radically change the way you tackle problems, giving you the skills to find innovative solutions that actually enhance business success and opportunity for growth.


Managers and executives are now tasked with the difficult job of communicating with geographically dispersed teams.  As managers you need to be able to “get things done through people” and effective communication is the first step to achieving this, wherever your teams are based. Our Communication Skills program will radically transform the way you engage, motivate and connect with everyone you come into contact with in your business, including staff, customers, suppliers, agents and colleagues.

Customer Service

Giving customers a quality and reliable service, whilst still maintaining a competitive price is a difficult balancing act. Our Customer Service program will dramatically shift the way your people interact with and manage your customers, to ultimately enhance the quality of service you provide, ensure your customers remain loyal and maximise their life-time value.

Developing a unified vision for future success

With the pressures facing today’s FMCG industry, it’s vital your executives can come together to agree on a strategic vision that will give your company the competitive edge. Our Boardroom Facilitation is proven to be highly successful at creating a unified executive team who can push forward with company objectives
