Workshop Descriptions

Conference Kickoff Workshop: Effective Sales Strategies From a Retail Veteran

COVID has not only accelerated, but stress-tested just about everything in retail from supply chain to staffing to sales. A broad range of technologies have been introduced or indexed to combat the on-going challenges, and never more than today has the ability of solution providers to prepare, pitch and sell become a matter of survival. A seasoned former career retailer will share impressions, irritants, preferences, and the winning recipe for not only a successful sale, but a sustainable business relationship. Learn to refine your product positioning, relevance, and competitive advantages to answer the “so what” of your product or service. Come prepared to have one’s paradigms challenged, and likely changed.

SPEAKER 
  • Brand Elverston, Founder/Principal, Elverston, LLC

2:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Conference Kickoff Workshop: How OSINT and Social Media can be used in ORC and Identification of Personal / Corporate Information

It’s never been easier to find information that can compromise your company and top-level executives. One of the AP communities’ favorite speakers, Michele Stuart, returns to lead a practical workshop that teaches you how criminal actors can use open-source intelligence to social engineer cyber and physical attacks against retailers and to access personal information about employees. Michele will give you unparalleled insight into the criminal mind that will empower you to proactively identify vulnerabilities online and protect yourself, your family, your company, and your colleagues. This year’s workshop offers new insight on the latest methods and actionable intelligence sites you should know about!

SPEAKER

  • Michele Stuart, Private Investigator, JAG Investigations
