Retail Accelerator Workshop

Workshop with two expert retail facilitators

Event details

Inside Retail Academy along with Global Retail Academy is proud to be hosting an intensive 1-day leadership workshop in Melbourne on Tuesday (25th) at the Sheraton.

In an increasingly competitive landscape, retailers that embrace the notion of continuous change and take action to educate, communicate, guide, empower and innovate from within will survive and thrive. Those that don’t, risk disappearing forever. Join Prakash and Andrew to discuss:

1. Reinvent or disappear, it’s about continuous innovation.

2. Invest into your learnings, both technical skills and adaptive skills

3. Learn to drive top line sales and bottom line profit

4. Remove the Silo Mentality, it’s about integration

5. Grow your talent from within and create highly engaged work force.

Event Information

8.30AM – Registration

9:00AM – Session One – Reinvent or Disappear

Today we are all grappling with extraordinary changes that represent a permanent shift in the way we work, communicate, share our lives, create value, develop leaders and innovate. What seemed unthinkable yesterday is either commonplace, on the horizon or on the verge of being introduced today.

With the world becoming infinitely smaller, all businesses must focus more heavily on global mega-trends as opposed to just issues specific to their own industries and organisations if they want to do more than just survive.

10.30 to 11AM – Morning Break

11 – 12.30 pm Session 2 – The 13 RETAIL IMPERATIVES

The convergence of technology and retail selling channels has turned traditional retail models upside down. This radical era of change is forcing the retail industry to reevaluate their businesses as a whole —their people, processes and partners, and the technologies that support them.

12.30 – 1.30 pm Full Lunch & Networking

1.30 – 3 pm Session 3 – LEVERS for IMPROVING PERFORMANCE

You can improve retail performance simply by identifying and managing the levers that contribute to that performance.
Explore levers such as Customer Traffic, Conversion Rate, Average Units per Transactions, Gross Profit, Inventory Carrying Costs and many others. Learn shortcuts on how you can measure and drive top line sales and bottom line profit.

3 – 3.30 pm Afternoon Break

3.30 – 5 pm Session 4 – The Burning Platform in Retail

The only positioning worth striving for today is to be the best in the world. The drive to be number one in retail starts with a clear understanding of what is it that makes a retailer successful and what are the reasons of retail failure. Being able to pinpoint the weak links in your retail supply chain and having the acumen to strategise and implement focused strategies is what will take you there.
