What does it take to keep an independent retail shop thriving in the era of big boxes, category killers, and online “retail is dead” shopping?
Gilbert Russell can tell you!
In 1987, Gilbert started Brio Bodywear with just $50 and a dream. Over the next 30+ years, he experienced it all, from breakneck growth to near-bankruptcy and stagnation, and competitive threats no one could see coming.
Most importantly, he survived. Today Brio is a million dollar, international award-winning, industry-leading retail operation. And it’s still proudly independent.
A passionate and engaging speaker, Gilbert is eager to share the tips, tools, and skills he learned to maintain his business and his sanity. Attendees will leave inspired and empowered with practical ideas they can implement in their stores.
Gilbert is available for speaking engagements, workshops, masterminds and one-on-one coaching in English or French. Contact him today.
