Spatial Analysis and the Omnichannel, London, 15th June 2016

Venue: Grant Thornton, 30 Finsbury Square, London, EC2A 1AG
Nearest tube: Moorgate, Liverpool Street
Time: 6pm for 6.30pm start; 8.00pm networking

The June meeting of SLA will focus on a current view of the analytical and strategic consequences of the omnichannel for firms. Michael Flood, from John Lewis Partnership, has been at the forefront of strategic customer relationship management for a number of years. For the last eight of these he has worked for a 150 year-old business which has tackled head-on the journey to omnichannel retail.

Michael’s talk is entitled: “Planning for a no channel future?” Jonathan Reynolds has written and researched on omnichannel retailing for nearly thirty years – well before the term was coined. He will offer his reflections on the challenges of analysis; and shares insights from new research being conducted by the Consumer Data Research Centre into the e-resilience of English town and city centres. Finally, we take the opportunity of coming together as a group to hear from Steve Halsall who, as members know is a founder member of SLA and has been most recently involved in a salary survey of SLA members. He will share his findings with you. As ever, there will be an opportunity for networking after the presentations and Q&A.

SLA is sponsored by CACI and Geolytix. We are grateful to them and to Grant Thornton for providing the venue for this meeting.
