The strategy and coaching sessions complement the TR Talentpool Initiative which aims to support those who have lost their jobs in duty free & travel retail as a result of Covid-19, by offering free of charge entry to the TRMarketplace event in September, including unlimited access to the platform for a month before to allow them to book meetings with all participants and discuss potential career opportunities.

In the first of the two-part session entitled ‘Strategies for the new normal’ Mark will deliver a thought-provoking analysis of some of the major challenges facing the industry today and how companies and individuals can address these to get ahead.


He will address some of the underlying problems with duty free retailing, provide his thoughts on why manufacturers and retailers are eroding value in each others’ businesses and share his strategies for developing a retailing environment that can double profit for all stakeholders. This first part will take place on Monday 28 September at 11am UK time.


The second part of this strategic analysis, which will take place on Thursday 1 October at 11am UK time, Mark Taylor will address some of the more operational aspects of how to succeed in the post-Covid travel retail environment.


In this session, the global behavioural change expert will share his strategies for executives on how to negotiate value in the post-covid context. He will share his ideas on behaviour and processes that eat into the bottom line and how to realise greater value for all stakeholders.
