LP Leadership Webinar Available On-Demand’

As an industry that is chock full of dynamic leaders, it is hard to pick just a few to lead a discussion on the challenges of asset protection today, but we’ve got four that we know you will love. Join our AP Leadership Round Table as a panel of experts from four different retail platforms share their insights and opinions on some of the most important opportunities facing the AP industry today, to include topics such as Transitioning to New Roles and Responsibilities, the Art of Influence When Leading, Leading Remote Teams, Hiring/Recruiting/Retaining in today’s market – and a few nuggets of fun thrown in as well.

We discuss these topics in greater depth with leaders that have a wealth of experience dealing with these issues, sharing what they’ve learned and offering their insights on how to navigate through the challenges and opportunities critical to your career development.

Retail is a dynamic and evolving industry, and successful asset protection leaders must have the ability—and the fortitude to adjust and evolve as well. Looking at the many different directions that an asset protection career can take us and the spectrum of retail platforms that require our subject matter expertise, it’s critical that every AP professional learn and understand the personal and professional assets that must be developed as an asset protection leader, and recognize the obstacles that can stall, and even derail a promising career.
