In Good Company: The Changing World of Retail

Speed, convenience, and personalization are key to winning the hearts of today’s shoppers. But it’s not always easy. KPMG retail expert Mark Schmeling joined us to talk about the changing world of retail and what retailers need to do to get ahead of their competition.


Today’s shoppers are used to speed, convenience, and personalization. If retailers can measure up to these increasingly high expectations, shoppers will keep coming back. But it’s not always easy—it requires flexibility, investment in talent, and a willingness to innovate.
