Hire Retail Expert Bob Negen For Your Next Event

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.


Expereienced Store Owner & Acclaimed Retail Speaker

Bob knows the challenges and opportunities retailers face. His hard-hitting and often hilarious training stories come from over two decades as an independent retail store owner, building his business 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 and operating his own award-winning kite store, Bob founded WhizBang! Training and has spent the past fifteen years as a retail speaker, teaching tens of thousands of 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 online.
