Boulder, CO, June 1, 2010 - On Wednesday, June 9, from 2:00 p.m. through 3:00 p.m. (MDT) Outdoor Industry Association® (OIA) will present Branching Out Without Losing Your Roots, a live webinar presented by Jennifer Mull, president and CEO of Backwoods and OIA board member.

“Dance with the one that brung ya!” is a great, yet potentially fatal statement for a retailer. Concepts, core values, vendors and products – or roots – have all made a retailer “who they are today.” These roots are a retailer’s essence and have been critical keys to their success and should be honored. However, the “new and innovative” along with change in key areas of a business, are often absolutely required for long-term success. How a retailer balances these two “opposing” requirements can be the linchpin to their ultimate, and continued, growth and success.

In this 60-minute webinar, Mull will cover:

  • Methods to evaluate what “roots” are really foundational vs. which “roots” died a long time ago or should be laid to rest.
  • Once the foundational roots are identified – how to meld the old and new. 
  • Realizing the “grief” cycle as an underlying key factor in this process and how to move through it efficiently and effectively.


Branching Out Without Losing Your Roots is part of the 2010 OIA Outdoor University® online workshops which are offered free to OIA members and SNEWS® subscribers and $99 per webinar for non-members. Pre-registration by Tuesday, June 8 is required.
