An Insider Trends retail trend keynote presentation will leave your audience inspired, energised and enthused, with the clarity and confidence to take positive action when they return to their business.

Our keynote presentations are designed to outline and explore the most important retail trends that will impact your audience over the next 3-5 years. We draw original insights from first-hand store visits and from our unique interviews with retail leaders, tech experts and organisations inventing the future of retail.

Each retail trend is contextualised using thorough market research and robust data, to illustrate the shift taking place and the scale of the opportunity it presents. In addition, we highlight a variety of businesses who are already acting on each trend. This will give your audience inspirational ideas plus a clear understanding of how they can adapt the trend to their own advantage.

Insider Trends’ retail trend keynote presentations are ‘fat free’, dynamic and thought-provoking. A typical hour-long presentation will feature up to 60 slides, packed with images, data and case studies, of which only one slide is about Insider Trends.

Insider Trends: providing clarity, insight and inspiration to your audience.
