Newsagency of the future workshops: beyond 2019

Opportunities for new shopper traffic, higher GP% and greater per visit value.

I invite you to a new free business management workshop for newsagents where I will share an insight into trends in current trading data, trends for core categories overseas and opportunities for growth as we all recast our businesses.

I will ask some tough questions and through these navigate to challenges that sit at the root of some newsagency channel core categories and work through, with you, several opportunities growth in these.

What we explore together will be relevant to any newsagent in any situation, large or small, city or country. The sole focus will be on creating a brighter future, even if that means for you your own business exit strategy.

You will receive valuable takeaways you will be able to use right away as well as thought-provoking questions each of us in retail will have to answer.

While some examples will be newsXpress related, this is not a newsXpress sales event. It is a continuation of my Newsagency of the Future Workshops, which I first ran in 2004 and have evolved ever since.

I will also share newsXpress case studies where business owners have recast their businesses through change. These will include city and country businesses. Large and small.

Please, join me as we invest in a stronger newsagency channel.

    Why not invite the other buying groups to attend, after all …”What we explore together will be relevant to any newsagent in any situation, large or small, city or country. The sole focus will be on creating a brighter future, even if that means for you your own business exit strategy.”

    Colin they do not have a history of active pursuit of change. I am not aware of anything innovative that they could bring to the table. That said, they are welcome to attend and contribute.

    Yes Mark. Don’t agree with everything you say and do. However, in my opinion, you and nXp are the future of whats left of our channel. My advice to any newsagent would be to grab your business model with both hands. We are with Newspower at the moment, total ineffective. Don’t know much about Nextra.
