Daniel L. Hopping
"State of The Art Retail"
Daniel Hopping Expertise: Technology • Future
Fee Range: $5,000 to $10,000
Location: North Carolina     Video
Daniel Hopping is a global technology futurist, author, inventor, consultant and speaker.

With four decades of hands-on experience, Dan’s area of expertise is forecasting the impact that technology will have on the retail industry and tomorrow’s consumer.

The consumer of today is changing lifestyles at such a rapid pace that companies cannot change their operating systems fast enough to stay current. Dan predicts accelerating changes affecting how we live, work, shop and play over the next five years will be greater than the changes we have seen in the past 20 years.
The advent of cell phones, email, phone mail, widespread use of PC’s, kiosks, wireless, Bluetooth and many more technologies have all been developed during that twenty year period.

Dan Hopping has been involved with dozens of retail “store of the future” projects. His company, Next Retail Group, works with manufacturers, financial institutions and retailers to keep them abreast of the latest technologies and their utilization.

As a keynote speaker Dan has inspired audiences worldwide including NRF, FMI, NACS, APLA, CCFA, Euroshop, Retail Solutions UK, Retail Systems and WLA. In addition to his many speaking engagements, he is often invited to speak at University MBA programs.

Dan’s background includes a long tenure as a manager and Retail Executive Consultant for IBM Corporation ‘s Retail Store Systems division. He holds degrees from the Purdue University, Krannert School of Business in both Computer Science and Industrial Management. While at Purdue he worked as a Systems Analyst for the Krannert School writing business management simulation games.

Presentations on the Retail Industry, the consumer and the future
Do you feel that life is happening a little too fast? Is technology changing too quickly and with too much complexity? Is life becoming hectic? Not enough time in your life? Well it’s going to get worse.

Dan examines what is causing the accelerated rate of change we feel in our lives and looks at the technologies that are being researched in the labs that will cause more change in the next five years than we have experienced in the last twenty years.

In the last twenty years we have seen the introduction and widespread use of the PC, the cell phone, the Internet, the Web, e-mail, phone-mail, outsourcing, off shoring, and pervasive wireless. These things have helped to change our lives in ways we could not have imagined in 1986. In the next five years we will see even more change in how we live, how we work and how we shop.

The consumer is changing faster than retailers can change their systems to keep up. How will the process of shopping take place when the consumer has near perfect information while shopping? How will a retailer talk to the consumer who is standing in front of the merchandise and what will the retailer say? How will the consumer pay for merchandise in 2013? Just how different might things be?

Dan will discuss the global retail projects that are now defining the retail store of 2013. He will examine the most successful and least successful projects and tell you how to avoid the pitfalls of the least successful. He will look at why some projects are failing and some thriving. He will discuss a roadmap for building a successful project that optimizes the cost of evolving into the future.

Understanding the patterns of change allows any company that works with and for the consumer to be better prepared to survive and thrive in the future.
