In the meantime…
In the meantime, if you’d like to read my book to understand where I’m coming from, then that’s an excellent idea.
It is hot off the press for 2021.
Available from September via sustainable POD (print on demand) from Amazon or your usual book retailer.
I hope that the sections on how to flourish in the ‘The life and times of the Essential Retailer’ how to evolve ‘Agile Organisations’ and excel in ‘Astute Strategies’ may be sources of inspiration and guidance. You will also find 75 action plans and 100 retail best practice insights that may help you to assess your current weaknesses and opportunities.
If you are a new retail professional trying to find your place, then the sections on the ‘Retail Evolution Curve’ explaining the retail executive shift from ‘Deal-breakers’ to ‘Entrepreneurial disruptors’ quite interesting. Whilst in the ‘Agile Organisations’ page you’ll find plenty of relevance regarding organisational structures, digital-first mind-sets, innovation teams and managing the perpetually moving retail business.
