The Robin Report Platform
The Robin Report platform is a knowledge-based information and consulting platform driving strategic growth and vision at the intersection between new-world and legacy retail sectors and related consumer product industries.
The Robin Report
Provocative, outspoken, opinionated and unbiased, our daily content feed is the trusted source of knowledge, insight and analysis to provide retail and related industry leaders the context they need to help guide their businesses.
Our thought leadership forums identify key trends and analyze critical marketplace indicators, offering relevant idea-exchange and thought about trends and strategies in retailing and other consumer-facing businesses – plus introduce nextgen leaders shaping the future of retail.
The Radicals Awards
The Robin Report Retail Radicals Awards focuses on identifying the radical thinkers and doers exclusively in the legacy retail industry sectors. These radicals are driving the major transformations within their respective retail brands with challenges much larger and more complex than those of often-celebrated tech-driven startups. The Robin Report Index identifies quantitatively and qualitatively outperforming retailers and their innovators within five industry sectors.
Robin Lewis –Best-Selling Books
Robin Lewis is noted co-author with Michael Dart of Retail’s Seismic Shift: How to Shift Faster, Respond Better, and Win Customer Loyalty. This playbook identifies the major trends in our economy that will shape the future of retail and determine who wins. We are approaching the time in which distribution begins and ends with the consumer, mass markets give way to fragmented markets, and the necessity of entirely new business models is paramount. And now, with the emergence of the technology-empowered young consumer culture, retailers will be forced to transform their offerings.
