Speaker: Thierry Bayle - Founder of GFM / LFBA. Sharing over 25 years' international experience working with Retailers and Brands.

He delivers a merchandise plan / open to buy plan that  his US partner has developed for over 30 years. Today this monthly plan is delivered to hundreds of clients around the world (brick and mortar boutiques and online businesses).
It is working perfectly well even if you have a store doing £200 000 to £500 000. And the plan is even more effective if you have a large business.
