Other than a holiday show you will see shared over the next two weeks this was my last episode of Crisis Management. Doing this show has been a true joy for me and the realization of a goal I had set years ago. I wish I could continue but as many know some events in my life in 2020 completely kicked my ass and I just won’t have the time in 2021 to devote to this show while also running my consulting business, attending to new responsibilities and of course spending time with my family. I am so grateful to Verizon Media for giving me the opportunity to do this, to Kirsty March (the first boss I have had in a while), the amazing production team and the absolute perfect co-host I had in Alicja Siekierska. A giant thanks to my partners and team at SATOV for putting up with the show and contributing to it. And to my amazing wife Karuna who tolerates me, supports me and even watched the show…what would I ever do without you?? PS sorry for the long post

Black Friday is typically the time of year when consumers wait in long lines, sometimes stampeding through big box retailers in order to get their hands on the best deals.  But Black Friday is expected to be different this year, thank to the COVID-19 pandemic.  For the first time ever, more consumers plan on shopping online than in brick-and-mortar stores, according to a Deloitte survey. A survey conducted by Shopify found that half of Canadians plan on shopping over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, spending more than they did in previous years.  The shopping event is also a critical time for many small businesses. The Retail Council of Canada estimates that 40 per cent of small business revenues fall in this holiday shopping period, which includes Black Friday. So what should businesses be doing to make sure they are able to capitalize on the event? Strategy expert outlines his advice, and why Black Friday is not as important these days for big box retailers.
