January Topic: Kick Starting Your 2023 Retail Plan

You closed 2022 on a high note (hopefully) and need to kick start 2023. Fear not as our retail expert, James Walser, will lead a conversation on how to capitalize on past wins or misses, how to build a strategic plan, generate a product pipeline or how to get an underperforming channel profitable. Come with lots of questions as James comes with lots of experience across all retail channels (physical, online, DTC).

About our presenter:

James Walser is a 20+ veteran of the Retail world working at Gap, Target, and Amazon, as well as having his own Amazon consulting firm and being the CEO of a startup in Durham. His experience covers over 50 categories including Watches, Household, Personal Care, Baby and Pet.
