Every year J.D. Associates sponsors a seminar for retailers with the intention of educating them on current retail trends and providing actionable items that they can bring back to their stores and implement. Previous year's keynote speakers include industry heavy-hitters, Jim Dion author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Starting and Running a Retail Store, and Rick Segel author of The Retail Business Kit for Dummies. "The aim of the annual retailer's seminar is simply to help retailers. We recognize that paying $75 and taking a day away from their stores is a serious commitment; we want them to walk away with valuable tools they can take right back to their stores and implement. We feed them breakfast and lunch, but we're not just feeding their stomachs, we're feeding their minds." says, Debra Neville, Marketing Director at J.D. Associates.
You Can Compete is being held at at the Sheraton Four Points in Leominster, MA. on October 12th from 8:00AM -3:00PM. Registration is $75.00 per person and includes breakfast and lunch.
This year's keynote speaker is Bob Phibbs, The Retail Doctor. Phibbs is the author of several books on retail including, “The Retail Doctor’s Guide to Growing Your Business, A Step-by-Step Approach.” He’s also a frequent guest on the MSNBC show: YOUR BUSINESS.
