Q Academy is Quadrifoglio’s know-how at its best.

At QA we teach our methodology through workshops and seminars while training our attendees in simulating the customisation and implementation parts as if in real business life.

Quadrifoglio’s Method transforms aesthetic principles into rational processes.

The combination of style & rationality is our competitive advantage and key element of the methodology that is based on the fundamental understanding of consumers by analysing their style preferences and profiling their lifestyle characteristics & shopping behaviours.

We support retailers to develop a CUSTOMER CENTRIC business model: CONSUMERS CHANNEL & SOCIAL RETAILING is our vision where SUSTAINABILITY is the target.
