The Consumer & Retail sector is a fast-changing world and one of increasing challenges and complexities. The competition to conquer new markets and to develop customer loyalty is fierce and global. The advent of the internet means most companies have the whole planet as a potential marketplace and customer relations is constantly being reinvented. 


This is the most competitive, complex business sector on the planet. It embraces exclusive labels, household brand names and lightning-fast changes in trends. It’s local, regional and global. It’s the high-energy, highly volatile consumer and retail sector. From French mineral water on tables in New York or Sydney to the most exclusive shoes, hand-made in Tuscany and shown in the windows of Tokyo’s Ginza district, passing through clinically tested cosmetics, now openly labeled as "Made in China": this is the world of Consumer Goods. In this world, major investments cost millions - if not more - and companies are vitally dependent on the business judgment and street savvy of key leaders.
