More and more retail success is about being unique, different, and special. If you are not differentiated, you are a commodity and interchangeable. Relevant differentiation is the world of retail Branding and the world of retail Branding is John Torella’s world. With over three decades of experience with some of the world’s most successful Brands—Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO), Mark’s, Holt Renfrew, Harry Rosen, Sobeys—John brings a sense of trust and confidence. His credibility is enhanced by his books: Evolution of Retail Marketing, re|Think Retail Branding, Whole-being Retail Branding, and Stop Talking Start Doing Retail Branding. John is a graduate of the Kellogg Graduate School of Management Communications Strategy program, the Brand Value program at Harvard Business School and Tuck School program on Strategic Brand Management. His quest for thought leadership in retail Branding enables him to be a trusted advisor to his clients. In 2006, John was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Marketing Association (CMA) for his contribution to Canadian marketing and in 2012 was the recipient of Honorary Life Membership to the CMA for his outstanding service and contributions.
