Thousands of retailers descended to the Gold Coast last week for Retail Fest 2023, one of the largest events on the retail calendar. National Retail Association (NRA) was a proud sponsor of the three-day conference that had a stellar lineup of best-in-market speakers and brands. We were immersed in a plethora of amazing brands and retailers and astounded by the opportunities on show. If you weren’t there, I highly recommend attending next year – it certainly broadened my horizons just over the course of the event!

On another note, the NRA Board has appointed its newest member, Rob Godwin. Rob brings with him a wealth of retail experience and a strong background in e-commerce. Rob established the Australian arm of Lovehoney in 2013 and successfully developed the company to become one of the country’s largest online retailers. He is highly experienced in driving strategic growth and sits on a number of retail and industry boards. Read more about Rob here.

The Workplace Relations team continues its rollout of invaluable member resources across the next couple of months. We are holding our next webinar session on Wednesday 12 April discussing rostering compliance. This session is a must for all business owners and team managers who need to know the proactive steps to take to avoid the headache of under and over-payments. Purchase a ticket here.

Have a great week.
