Retail Reboot: How to Webinar 5 - Stock, costs and streams: right-sizing financial flows

Massey University, in conjunction with a range of industry partners including RetailX and Retail NZ, is here to help provide some guidance and reassurance as we pivot to the new normal.

We are now up and trading but who knows what the future holds? It is uncertain times but we need to present an appealing offer for shoppers and right-size our business to get through this crisis. As retailers, we would love nothing less than to put ourself in the best position to trade through and come out the other end in the best financial position possible.
