University of Gloucestershire Professor of Retail & Marketing Neil Towers

Megatrends that are re-shaping the Retailing landscape is the theme for the next in the University of Gloucestershire’s Inaugural Lecture series.

Neil Towers, Professor in Retail Management/Marketing, will be taking to the lectern on Wednesday 10 June to discuss the shifting focus of retail in all sectors.

With over 30 years’ industry and academic experience, including senior roles in the manufacturing business in the 1980s and ’90s, Towers has worked with, among others, Schuh, Next, George at Asda, Per Una and Waitrose. He is Lead for Research at the University of Gloucestershire Business School and has authored a number of sector policy reports.

On giving his lecture, Towers said: “I am really looking forward to sharing my thoughts and expertise on the subject of megatrends in a rapidly changing retail sector that has seen the dominant multiples taken to task by the discounters, local sourcing and customer services moving to centre stage.”

This public lecture is free to attend and everybody is invited to come along, although booking is essential. The lecture starts at 6 although refreshments will be available from 5. To join Towers for what promises to be a fascinating evening, please email Lois Oldham:
