How is everyone hanging in there? It’s hard to believe that many of us have been living and working in our new normals for more than a month now. Personally, I’ve settled in pretty well, as long as I take daily walks, eat well, and turn off the news (as a form of self-preservation). I’ve also been catching up with old contacts, spending more time with my teenage children, and viewing interesting Zoom webcasts on topics such as leadership, sustainability, and presentation skills.

The team at Women in Retail Leadership Circle and its sister brand, Total Retail, have also been spending a lot time planning our one-day Women in Retail and Total Retail Virtual Lounge event, which is taking place next Tuesday, April 28. We would love for you to join us!

During the event, you’ll see live interviews with leading retail CEOs on a variety of mission-critical industry topics that are valuable in the current retail climate. We have an incredible lineup of speakers, including:

  • Rebecca Minkoff, Co-Founder and Creative Director, Rebecca Minkoff
  • Mike Edwards, President and CEO, Hanna Andersson
  • Neela Montgomery, CEO, Crate and Barrel
  • Chris Rowland, President and CEO, Pet Supplies Plus

All of our speakers will be discussing relevant and timely topics given the current environment, such as how they’re pivoting their business strategies; best practices for leading and motivating their teams; and their plans to reopen retail stores. I’m personally excited to learn from these retail superstars.

Register here for this complimentary virtual event today! I hope you can join us!
