We help investors and consumer-facing businesses understand and navigate the highly dynamic retail and leisure landscape.

Consumer businesses face a fast-changing landscape. The internet has transformed shopping and buying habits, increasing the penetration of omni-channel

retailers and creating more empowered, better informed consumers. Leisure spend is adapting to changes in generational demands, and

across all sub-sectors consumers are placing increased value on high-quality experiences.

What we do Some of the ways we help organisations include:

Consumer insights and behaviours: Knowing who you are serving is critical. We help our clients understand who their customer is, what their motivations are and how this should inform their strategy.

Location and roll-out strategy: We help multi-site retail and leisure businesses develop their roll-out strategy and prioritise locations. Our approach is highly data-driven, combining data from local socio-demographics, business KPI’s and competitors.

Market entry strategy: We support clients in the research, analysis and prioritisation of new markets. We help in both stress testing of current plans and the collaborative development of new strategies.
