"Now, the constant ability to seize opportunities and grasp the spirit of the moment to show agility and responsiveness on a daily basis, is becoming retailers’ most important concern..

Long phases are over! On-line comments, a new application, an inventive experience offered by a competitor...these can turn the most well-established models upside down.

The era of indiscriminately imposing a sales activation plan on one and all is over. Everything lies in the art and style of addressing each individual, in every place, at every time, with differentiated and competitive tools, whether physical or digital, in perfect harmony with the brand or company's DNA.

We have known it for a long time, but now more than ever, success depends on a moment of magic and serendipity between retailer and customer, a special kind of alchemy born of creativity, careful execution, and a multitude of behind-the-scenes adjustments and crucial details. "
