Doug Stephens, Retail Prophet
Doug Stephens, a retail and consumer futurist and best-selling author, will be the keynote speaker at Furniture Today’s 15th annual Bedding Conference! His address, on Tuesday, May 18, will kick off the educational programming at the Bedding Conference.
As the founder of global consultancy Retail Prophet, Stephens has made a name for himself as one of the world’s leading retail and consumer futurists. His books, “The Retail Revival” and “Reengineering Retail,” have predicted the transformation for retail in the post-digital world. In a new book, “Resurrecting Retail: The Future of Business in a Post-Pandemic World,” Stephens offers a roadmap for the industry outlining how a public health emergency of this size and scope will shape retail and consumer behaviors long after the threat of COVID-19 has passed. Stephens’ research and insights help major organizations — such as Johnson & Johnson, BMW, Citibank, Disney and Google — understand exactly how trends in demographics, global economics, AI and media are forever altering consumer-brand relationships.
