Join us at TRE for NEXT!

Two members of the Karnan Associates team, Parker Karnan and David Durkin, will serve as faculty for the NEXT program, presented by Asics at The Running Event in December.

NEXT is an employee development program created by ASICS and TRE for store managers, buyers and sales associates. This special session is designed to help transform your employees into the NEXT generation of leaders for your store and the running specialty industry. The NEXT training will focus on the three main aspects of running a good specialty store, with each session led by experienced industry faculty. In addition to the sessions led by Parker and David, a third session will focus on building community through social media.

Parker's session will focus on running an efficient store. Specifically, how to insure you have the right number and right team of employees in your store at all times. This session will improve your customer service, and help your store run more efficiently and cost effectively.

David's session will bring insights to the topic of in-season inventory management. In this session we'll discuss model stocks, inventory flow through the year, and will present a model for identifying and planning in-season adjustments.
