Meet Your Teacher
Heather Reid worked for Walmart Canada for 22 years prior to joining Canada’s 8th & Walton in 2016. While at Walmart, she organized and facilitated its Retail Link® and various system-training programs for both internal and external Walmart customers. She also facilitated a four-day supplier training session on a bi-weekly basis, teaching over 2,000 suppliers. She has a vast knowledge of Replenishment (GRS) and is an expert in Retail Link® and in Accounting for both Walmart Canada and Walmart US. In addition to her deep knowledge of retail systems, Heather is an extraordinary teacher. She holds a diploma in Human Resources, Marketing, and Accounting and has held the Canadian Human Resource Leader (CHRL) designation.
I really liked how Heather used examples relating to the specific business we were in. She knew the ins and outs of Retail Link and was extremely helpful in guiding which reports would be useful to every type of business. Heather’s performance as an instructor was 10/10 for me! She’s positive, happy, has a lot of knowledge of Retail Link and very experienced in the business. She explains things very well and is always happy to answer any questions. No parts of the class were confusing or difficult to grasp.
