Join Elizabeth Clark Founder and CEO, Sir John Timpson, Helen Dickinson Chief Exec British Retial Consortium, Jake Berry Minister for the Northern Powerhouse and a host of others speaking at The future for the UK retail industry - transforming high streets, adapting to changing consumer preferences and utilising latest technology on 25th April in London.

Elizabeth Clark is looking forward to the launch of primary futures with MP James Frith

Looking forward to the launch of @PrimaryFutures Event in Bury with James Frith MP talking to a whole bunch of primary school children about their options in Tech. I was a bit perplexed with the instruction to "bring my uniform" - I'm thinking of wrapping myself in tinfoil? We have jobs here that didn't even exist a few years ago, I'm sure more will be coming that don't exist now. Kids, Teachers and Parents need to know this stuff so they can be ready for it. I had no idea what I wanted to be when I was at school, I just knew I didn't want to work in an office.

Bleak Friday? Can A.I deliver a Merrier Christmas for Retailers?

Is Black Friday the saviour of Christmas spending for retailers? What’s the secret sauce to avoid plummeting profits and record returns in January? It was only three weeks ago, but it seems like a distant memory now:

Starting pistol fired. Every man, woman, and child desperately climb over each other to get the best priced toaster/toy/thong for their beloved aunt/child/gran. Or that’s what the retailers hoped for.

Online was intense, and fast.

But was it a worthwhile experience for retailers and shopper alike?
