For me, this a guidebook for retailers to thrive, not just survive."

"Imagine working for an organization that creates value for customers, value for those in the organisation who create it, value for stakeholders and value for the Planet. Martin Newman is one of the few people I know who really understands the meaning of the word "value". This is a fantastic book that will show you how to create it."

Professor Malcolm McDonald

MA(Oxon) MSc PhD DLitt DSc Emeritus Professor, Cranfield University School of Management

"Another great read, truly focusing on the important elements to drive customer centricity. Martin once again highlights the key attention points of why the customer should be at the centre of all decision-making in terms of marketing, store layout and of course product. This book is a must read for all omni-channel retailers giving clear examples of why retailers have either won or lost. I will for one be giving it to all of my team."
