How Tech Empowers Small Fashion Retailers to Compete with Larger Rivals
Wed 19 October 2016, 13:30 – 17:30 BST
What does England’s World Cup Winning Rugby Coach Sir Clive Woodward know about fashion? Probably not an awful lot… but this inspirational leader and motivator knows an incredible amount about making changes to strategy and operations that can benefit all sorts of businesses and teams – including independent fashion retailers and those looking to build a fashion business.
Sir Clive recently presented to department store heads and members at the Associated Independent Stores annual conference, where his speech captivated the audience, and in October he is the keynote speaker at this, now annual, retail and technology conference.
Retail IT work with a number of independents, boutiques and growing fashion chains and their event is designed to show how small and growing retailers can compete with the big chains by harnessing technology.
