Keynotes & Trend Workshops
Matthew Brown, Retail Futurist: Keynote Speaker
From keynote presentations at big international conferences, to intimate team training workshops, or trend presentations that kick off one of our Retail Safaris, our trend talks are the cornerstone of Echochamber services.
Matthew has been delivering keynote presentations for more than twenty years, tracking the future of retail, emerging trends and global retail innovation in his highly visual, inspiring presentations.
From major international conferences to individual company events, Matthew talks about trends in every retail sector as well as major post pandemic global consumer trends. We love to answer specific questions, and can tailor any presentation, but our favourite topics are the future of retail in the online world, keeping our cities and high streets vibrant, and the new age of ‘Retail with Purpose’.
If you would be interested in booking Matthew to speak for you, please do get in touch and say hello.
Inspiration Trend Workshops
If you want us to inspire your team in person we can visit you for an interactive workshop that will keep you up to date with the latest trends and global best practice.
Alternatively, in this post pandemic landscape of hybrid working, we can also run a session online. Say hello if you would book an (online or offline) trend session for your team to get the creative juices flowing again?
Our trend vision: What on Earth is going on?
Post pandemic, traditional retail has changed forever. To survive in this modern, online world, brands, shopping centres and even our own city streets need to engage us in much deeper ways.
It’s a strange world out there: Customers seek out penny saving deals at the supermarket…but eagerly wait in line to spend hundreds on the latest must-have item.
High Street stores are closing down in the face of online competition…and yet we’ve spotted people queuing in the rain for a can of coke that you can print your own name!
Retail is evolving faster than ever…
It’s an exciting and terrifying time. Our trend talks bring you the latest visual evidence, gathered from our travels around the world, of what is happening across retail, who’s innovating, and where it’s all heading.
Our retail talks are a whirlwind visual journey. Constantly refreshed with the latest news, our talks are informal, funny, controversial, and always inspiring.
When we talk about trends, we are not talking about changing fashions in design, materials and colours. The trends we focus on are the forces that are shaping the future of retail. Our trends are global, and they travel, like a tidal wave, through every retail sector.
By looking at how and where retail innovation is happening, our trends can serve as a road map to the future, helping you to plan your strategy and future proof your business.
That’s how our business works; we travel, we learn and we feed it all back to you!
