Retail Risk – Global Survey: Paul Bessant, Founder, Retail Risk

Be among the first to take part – and benefit from – the Retail Risk – Global Survey. Since 2011 Retail Knowledge’s surveys of retailers primarily in the US, UK and Australia have become an indispensable tool for the industry to benchmark operations and find practical ways to beat fraudsters. Now the survey is going global, real time and widening its remit to cover the risk arena – to produce the most timely, accurate and relevant material ever available on all aspects of retail risk.

Using latest polling technology, the survey canvasses information from delegates at the conference and publishes the results in real time at the event. The material is then compiled into a detailed report.

In this case study Charith will consider: Digital tools in compliance (based on our current practice); Productivity; Wider coverage and benefits.

MEET THE EXPERTS PANEL: Experts decide 'How To Do More With Less' at Retail Risk – Dubai’

As a world leader, the UAE continually challenges us to rethink what is possible in retail.

However, as UAE retail continues to expand at breakneck speed, the question for the Loss Prevention Manager is how to keep up whilst working within the fiscal constraints of budgets?

How To Do More With Less addresses that challenge head on…

Based upon the phenomenal success of the 2017 Retail Risk – Dubai Meet the Experts sessions, this year we move up a gear to urgently address the specific issues affecting retailers right now.

Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss, one-to-one and in confidence, how they should address the specific challenges faced by their individual businesses across the whole spectrum of loss prevention.

The session will give retailers the tools they need to successfully reassign resources in the most cost-effective way, to achieve their business objectives and in a manner consistent with the very high standards of retail customer experience for which the UAE is synonymous.

Delegates can expect to meet with as many as 12 international experts one-on-one. This is not a “meet the buyer” event where vendors pitch their businesses to a captive audience. Many of the experts will not be vendors. And those who do work for vendor organisations are honour bound NOT to use this opportunity to pitch their products. They are invited simply to provide expertise and insight in key areas.
