Acquiring and retaining your customers is a vital part of succeeding in retail in this day and age. The ever-present threat of competition means it's important for retailers to provide offerings that will influence their customers' loyalty to the brand/store.


NORA invites you for breakfast and conversation with four fast-growing Australian retailers who are all doing different things within the retail space to successfully acquire and retain their customer base.

Come and hear about:

  • Creating innovative products/ideas that other retailers haven’t tapped into yet. Thinking about real life problems and the opportunities to fill those gaps in the market.
  • Creating brand loyalty. What are the strategies that keep consumers loyal to your brand? How to create an iconic brand that will stand the test of time.
  • Creating a business for reasons other than profit. How to put your values into your brand and give back to the community.
  • Creating brand urgency through unique selling models.



Nick Pearce, Co-Founder of HoMie, will take us through the initiative behind the HoMie store as well as their recent online operations and future plans. The HoMie team is all about giving back to the community and helping to ease homelessness in Melbourne.   


Kjetil Hansen, Founder and CEO of Deliciou, will share his experience as an entrepreneur, and how seeing a gap in the market led him to the creation of a successful business.


Kate Parker is the CEO of Your Tea, a global business translating centuries of wisdom from Traditional Chinese Medicine into modern tea blends that help with the health challenges of today. For over 25 years Kate has been a growth driver for brands at the peak of their popularity, those in need of rejuvenation or just starting out.  This has included setting up the Australian operations for global start-up Zomato following their Urbanspoon acquisition, heading Marketing at T2 Tea and Colonial First State’s Shopping Centre Portfolio, as well as being part of the team that helped Australia’s biggest corporate collapse – Ansett Australia, get back in the air.
