CONSULTANCY

We will help you grow profitable sales and I will manage projects you need to outsource

Antonio Marsocci founded Think Positive with the objective of helping brands and retail businesses grow revenue. It’s as simple as that. We help business owners at all levels get their operations aligned in a way that boosters their business. This includes consulting on the customer services offering and branding, decreasing overheads, advising on collections business operations and routes to markets.

Partner in Brands and Retail

Antonio and all Think Positive Agency partner understands that the brands world is not for the faint heated. With its razor-thin margins and the pressure to bet on the next fashion. Couple this with digital advancements and changing consumer trends which threated to disrupt the consumer model on a daily basis and it’s amazing that many retailers opt to navigate the marketplace without support. However, the industry leaders that opt to parent up with a consultant stand to benefit from the support of an ally. A consultancy Agency can help advise on industry practice and implement customised solutions that aren’t just addressing today’s challenges but creating opportunities for tomorrow.

 

Operational Insight

We work by breaking down your total operations (from shop floor to head office and every area in between) and addressing your pain points. After all, the key to running a successful retail organisation is consistency at every level. However, some business owners and boards of directors might have lost visibility of what is happening at every level of the supply chain. We work to give this foresight back, to give you control of your operations at every level and to make active improvements in each area. Our consultancy services might stand to be the biggest investment you will ever make.

Fashion brand retail consultancy

A successful retail space is one that attracts customers in and makes them want to stay (and pay!). It has to be designed with the total retail experience in mind, maximising footfall and enjoyment, whilst remaining flexible and offering value. Think Positive works with global luxury fashion brands to ensure that all the factors of well-rounded, and sustainable, success are encompassed in all retail spaces.

Think Positive can work with your fashion business at any stage of growth, be it at start-up or multi-national level. We offer a complete and transparent service package which examines every part of the value chain including:

When working with Think Positive, clients can pick their own project length – ensuring that dreams, ideas and strategic vision can be integrated into business reality within weeks. Not only this but at Think Positive you can be sure that each project is managed by the Managing Partner, Antonio Marsocci, since we keep our company deliberately small. No junior consultants mean that you always deal with decision makers and action takers.
