Do you get chills whenever you hear the word “future”? What comes next, no one can predict, and to some that is a scary thought.
But have you ever thought about the big picture? Of imagining what the future holds for us in the next few months, years, or decades, in order to make better decisions?
When it comes to business, forward-thinking is the future. Forecasting which trends, strategies, and innovations will emerge is what will keep you two steps ahead of any competitor.
On August 12, 2021 Doug Stephens of the Retail Prophet and one of the world’s foremost retail industry futurists, and bestselling author will help you do just that as Keynote Speaker at the 27th National Retail Conference and Stores Expo (NRCE) – Virtual edition.
