6-Part* Webinar Series
A Clear and Present Danger to Retailers
Join Management One as we take a deep dive into the potential impacts from COVID-19 on the retail industry and offer advice to help retailers safeguard their businesses. 
There is a big difference between panic and strategic planning.

As a leader in retail consulting, Management One has the unique advantage of direct access to thousands of retailers across multiple verticals, sizes and locations through our network of retail experts. We also regularly leverage the advice provided by our trusted industry partners and retail networks.

To help provide a clear outline of the possible impact to our industry from the growing coronavirus epidemic, we have gathered a collection of experts across multiple sectors of the retail industry. Presenters include our President, Marc Weiss and key experts from Management One, as well as strategic partners, as noted below.

We're finding strength in unity through a collective approach to this problem and we want to share these insights with the entire retail community at no cost... at the end of the day, we are all in this together!


Your Store May Be Closed, But Your Business Isn't

After 6 successful sessions discussing strategies for retailers during the COVID-19 shutdown, we turn it back to the community. Join us for an open discussion with Bob Negen from WhizBang Training and Ashley Alderson from The Boutique Hub representing 2 of the largest retail communities in the country.

Thursday, April 23rd

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (PDT)

 6-Part* Webinar Series

After gathering all of the data provided by our internal and external network of retail experts, we quickly realized this was MUCH more than a simple, 1-hour presentation. From shifting marketing strategies, assessing financial options and analyzing internal business processes, we felt retailers would benefit most from a deeper dive that unpacked these issues in more detail.  

Each of these sessions are designed to address unique concerns universally shared by retailers. We invite you to join us for all 6 sessions to ensure you are fully prepared for what lies ahead. If you are unable to attend the live discussion, please register to receive a free copy of the video recording to review on your own time with your internal staff.
