As we work our way through the toughest retail conditions in memory and head towards the first response meeting from the QVM Board on 25th October, there is one critical ingredient all traders will be seeking – Leadership.
Retailers all around the world are struggling to adjust to
the “new consumerism”. Some are down-sizing, some are expanding. Some are
focussing their efforts online, some are tweeking their traditional communication
channels. Some are waiting for things to turnaround, while others are “getting
out there” and making changes.
This is no time for knee-jerk reactions. It is time for
considered action with a fair amount of bravery. It is a time for leadership. Strong
leadership from the Board will ensure another key ingredient for success –
inspired participation from traders.
