Hire Bob as a Speaker for Your Next Retail Training Event

If Your Audience is Retail Store Owners You Won't Find a Better Retail Speaker than Bob Negen 

Give Your Retailers the Information and Motivation they Need to be GREAT! 

From hardware stores, to gift stores, to boutiques & beyond... every retail business can benefit from Bob's expertise. 

You’ll get a retail speaker who knows what retailers face, the challenges and opportunities and how to deal with them. Bob’s hard-hitting and often hilarious training stories come from over two decades in the retail industry building his own retail store from a pitiful $17,000 in annual sales to a multi-store, multi-million-dollar operation.

He’s “been there, done that.”  Your audience will know it… and appreciate it.

After owning his own award-winning kite store for over two decades, Bob has spent the past decade as a speaker teaching retailers, store owners and managers the nuts-and-bolts skills they need to run successful stores.

In his work as a speaker, best-selling author and consultant, Bob has taken the customer-focused business philosophy he developed at his own retail business and applied it to the new realities of retail - increased competition, incredible price pressure, and the availability of 24/7 shopping on-line.

Bob doesn’t talk to Phd’s, Esq’s or CPA’s.  He talks to small business people and provides training in the retail industry in the language of small business, about the things that are important to small business. 

Things like how to generate tons of sales on a shoestring marketing budget, what you need to know about practical financial management that your banker and CPA don’t tell you, how to manage and motivate a superstar staff, how to control inventory to make more money, and other critical skills that mean the difference between big time success… or failure.

Bob's independent retail roots make him uniquely qualified to administer tough love. As a speaker, he’ll make them laugh and make them think, but he won’t let them off the hook.  In the end, your audience will know the responsibility for their success rests squarely on their own shoulders.  Plus they’ll get the tools, inspiration and training in the retail industry they need to go home and make it happen.

All of Bob's programs can be customized to match the needs of your group, and both the titles and content can be modified to fit the theme of your meeting.  Bob will research your industry, interview key players, and deliver a message that gets straight to the heart of the matter.

If you want your people to leave your next convention or conference fired up and loaded with money-making strategies that are absolutely sure to work in their business, then you want Bob Negen as your retail speaker.
