A day-long program envisioning the challenges of your stores, the 30 current trends and a process to dramatically shape your future.
Brand new for 2016!
Let Bob Phibbs take your business to a new level by facilitating an extended experience just for your attendees to explore the current retail trends of exciting possibilities, explore the challenges of your stores and come up with a plan to create a positive future for your stores.
Leadership is being open to the possibility we may come up with one or several new ideas for your store; it’s not expecting things to be fool-proof, easy or vetted by someone else – it is about collaborating to harness the power of the group and the knowledge each one brings to the project. One option available is cutting-edge technology for immediate polling of the audience and communication via their own smartphones.
Here are some of the sessions:
What Every Retailer Ought to Know About the Macro Trends Affecting Brick and Mortar Shops
The retail world is constantly evolving with new technology, platforms and requirements to be an employer of choice. This session will help attendees understand the challenges and current state of the industry. You’ll be able to identify over thirty major trends shaping customer and employee behavior.
The Difficult Conversation
Why whisper about the problems on break? Get the crappy feelings out there and analyze why brick and mortar store’s prominence for consumers is declining and describe why the problems are occurring. It isn’t just customers; it’s a lot of things including how we treat our customers. Examples from the audience of truly challenging problems as well as customer pet peeves will be explored once and only once. What are we prepared to do to fix it?

Hacking My Store: How I’ll Put it All Together
The fun experience of creativity, practical innovation and breakthroughs means nothing if we don’t use it. This session will concretize the best ideas so you can take them to your team for a more successful 2016.
Forget best practices of others, let the Retail Doctor facilitate your event with an eye towards the future, not a hope for the past.
