The Retail Futurist, otherwise known as Howard Saunders, is a writer and speaker whose job it is to see beyond retail’s currently choppy waters. Howard spent the first twenty five years of his career at some of London’s most renowned retail design agencies, including Fitch & Company, where he created concepts, strategies and identities for dozens of British high street brands. Howard relocated to New York in 2012 where the energetic regeneration of Brooklyn inspired his book, Brooklynization. His role as outspoken champion for the retail led regeneration of our town centres gave rise to the title The Retail Futurist. Howard’s talks are hi-energy, jargon-free journeys that explore the exciting, if not terrifying, retail landscape that lies ahead.
