Reinventing Retail in a Covid World
Free Webinar

Monday 16 November 7.00pm to 8.00pm
Graham Soult, Canny Insights

As many chain stores leave town centres, a growing pool of independent shops and other businesses is needed to reinvigorate and sustain those places – not just in terms of filling empty units, but also in ensuring that there is a distinctive, quality, local offer, giving consumers an experience that provides them with joy, and that cannot be readily replicated online.

This shift was already happening before COVID-19, and is only likely to intensify as town centres begin their post-pandemic recovery. As many people continue to work from home, and reintroduced local restrictions impact some larger population centres, there is evidence that smaller, local high streets are continuing to reap dividends.

Delivered by retail expert and high-street champion Graham Soult, this practical one-hour webinar and Q&A, aimed at independent traders in Mid Ulster, will share hints and tips that retailers can take away to help them navigate the COVID-19 situation over the next few months, and to trade as successfully as possible now and into the future.

Graham Soult is a high-street champion, digital marketing expert, media commentator, High Streets Task Force Expert, and Fellow of the Institute of Place Management (IPM), who founded and runs the retail consultancy works with retailers on the high street and online, as well as with landlords, local authorities, business associations and Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), to help them improve their offer and marketing.
