Seminar Topics Include:

  • The Weather Never Stops: Understand how constant day-to-day, week-to-week and season-to-season weather volatility is driving – and will keep driving – significant changes in demand patterns.  Learn how companies “weatherize” their business so it is positioned to capture more sales and minimize unintentional, but very costly, planning and operational mistakes.
  • The Weather “Blind Spot” and Its Bottom Line Impact: The weather is a huge “blind spot” for most companies and it is not just the future conditions.  Last year’s weather is part of last year’s sales performance and a failure to recognize and accurately remove the weather-driven variability from plans leads to misaligned inventories/resources and reduced profitability.
  • Measuring & Managing Weather-Driven Demand. Quantifying weather’s impact by category, by market and by time period and applying it in planning/demand forecasting, allocation/replenishment, operations, pricing, sales analysis, etc.
  • WeatherSmart Marketing & Advertising: Optimize customer engagement strategies and improve response rates by identifying favorable periods for email campaigns, digital advertising and other marketing activities.
  • Business Weather Intelligence Use Case Examples from retailers, restaurants and consumer goods/services companies.
  • Weather Impact Outlook for Spring 2015 highlighting weather-driven opportunities and risks for the upcoming season.
