USA - Graveyard for UK Brands

We had an insightful conversation with a British Client just recently.
As we were talking about the USA, he stated
"The USA has been a graveyard for UK Brands".

He was right, 100% right.
Why so many failures? Why can't we find the true reasons for this situation and avoid it?

We have a thorough understanding of the USA, field experience and many contacts and let's share with you why the business owner compared it to a graveyard.

#Retail - Treat your stock with Respect!

RETAIL DELIVERED WITH HONESTY AND TRANSPARENCY.
SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HIDING THE TRUTH FROM YOU FOR YEARS!

As we look back on 20 years' experience in stock or inventory management / open to buy both in the USA, Europe with over 400 clients, we realise that many Brands or Retailers fail to properly recognise the importance of the stock in improving sales, profits and customer traffic. 

As a multilabel store, your Cost Of Good Sold (COGS) could represent 40 to 55% of your net sales.
As a mono Brand store, your COGS could represent 15 to 35% of net sales.
And yet, many Retail events will not discuss how you can do a better buying.

Let us tell you a little story:

Nigeria - If you want to go far, go together

As the African proverb states
If you want to go fast, go alone;
If you want to go far, go together!

This is what GFM and 360 Creative Hub are doing by providing valuable business insight to Fashion Designers in Nigeria.

As GFM Founder Thierry Bayle says
"Fashion Success today is no more about what you know, it is about what you don't know. And building a global and profitable Brand is about strengthening the 3 essentials pillars:
Creativity, Business and Processes."

Blessing Ebere-Achu, Founder of 360 Creative Hub, knows how prolific the Nigerian Designers are and they are as talented as many Western Designers. She adds that "they need to have the opportunity to shine internationally and they need to master the business of fashion".

How to establish a Critical Thinking culture in your business

What will make your Business grow in 2020?

CEO Mentoring offers unique mentors, experts and sounding boards and one topic which was recently discussed was Critical Thinking.
Today, we will focuc on the need for the Designer, the CEO and the organisation to embrace exactly that.

Every day, we see Fashion brands or Retailers whether they do £100 000, £ 1M or £1B in sales which leave little space to a true critical thinking approach.
