What you get

After decades of relentless space expansion, the emergence of ecommerce and the post-Lehmans years of austerity, retailing has arrived at THE key moment in its history. The economics of the industry are changing. Most of the fundamental factors that have determined what has worked and what has not for years past, are now being severely challenged. This is the context for richardtalksretail.com. The website focuses on identifying and addressing the key issues, examining key companies and markets against the new and emerging criteria which will determine who wins and who doesn’t.

“I have known Richard for many years. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of the retail industry and I have always found our conversations interesting, informative and thought provoking.”

Lord Simon Wolfson CEO, Next
