The future of the high street

By Alex Forsyth
Our high streets are in rapid decline. Once bustling avenues of activity and commerce – a walk in any city center across the country is evidence enough that these have degraded to characterless corridors of cookie-cutter store templates slowly declining into obscurity.

Do you believe in building a ‘better business’?

By Matt Tipping
Business isn’t just about making money. The current overarching aim for the primacy of shareholders is a broken one; the system simply isn’t working. In terms of the industry we are based in, retail has always been a thing and will always be a thing - but the journey has got to change.

Back to Work Without a Bump

By Polly Grinnell
“I’m pregnant!”

From the moment you tell your boss you’re pregnant, things change. Suddenly you both know that there’s something bigger than your day job that’s stealing away your attention and you both know that, at some point in the not so distant future, you’ll be taking some time out of the business.

Musings on the subject of ‘time’.

By Dave Corke
We've all been there - Sat in those meetings, agreeing to this and to that, and then later when you sit back down at your desk you suddenly realise that time, the master of mischief and mayhem, has struck again.

The future of retail will be experience – we already know that. But at what cost?

By Alex Forsyth
I was asked this week, by a student, what I really thought about the death of the high street, and what ultimately might happen to retail. My answer was clear in my mind; Retail will always be around, I feel sure of that - It will just be lead by experience. Consumers may well focus on purchasing online and we may see stores (as we know them) become showrooms to their products, but it will always exist in some form.
