The Presenters


Pat Johnson and Dick Outcalt have been called "The Zen masters of retail finance!"

Their engaging and empowering how-to presentations about the financial levers in retailing are informative, fun(!), and retailer-friendly.

Each of their TOPICAL TUESDAYS Seminars is a fast-paced and entertaining session: 40 minutes of explanatory and practical content delivered by Pat and Dick, plus a 20 minute interactive Q&A session for attendees. Their promise: "Everyone will 'get it'!"

The Co-Founders of The Retail Owners Institute®, Pat and Dick are recognized experts in strategic retailing. Working only as a team – Outcalt & Johnson: Retail Strategists, LLC – they have been consulting, publishing, and speaking professionally throughout North America since 1990.

They focus exclusively on retail, or wherever retail is involved. They work with CEOs, CFOs, boards and owners of retail operations, as well as manufacturers or wholesalers expanding into retail.

"Is NOW the right time?"

Many retailers – especially Baby Boomers – are wondering “Is now the time to sell my stores?”

Whether or not this is the right time for you to sell, it is definitely a good time to be thinking about it!

And now, there's a new way for retailers to do just that. 

Pat Johnson and Dick Outcalt, Co-Founders of The Retail Owners Institute®, have developed a specialized strategic assessment tool specifically for retailers.

In fact, one retail CFO said this about this approach:

"I think this is an excellent exercise to go through. It sets up strengths and weaknesses, and would certainly help bring out your finer points to any prospective buyer. The standard earnings multiple that accountants and bean counters use simply overlooks a lot. This is refreshing!"

Take advantage of free access all week to the TOPICAL TUESDAYS Webinar of the Week. See how you can use this tool for your own business.

First, some reminders of what matters to buyers of businesses (and thus, what you need to focus on if you are thinking about selling the business)

Next, how to put a price tag on your business. (Same approach applies for deciding how much you would pay for a business.)

Then, Pat and Dick present their uniquely-retail assessment tool, and show how savvy retail owners can apply this to their own business.

You even may discover that you have more choices available than you had imagined! 

Available free, online, 24/7, all week long, for subscribers to The ROI NEWS.
