Hello Omni Talk Fans! To NRF, or not to NRF, that is the question.

Seems like everyone and their grandmother is talking about what to do about NRF this year, but as far as Anne and I are concerned, we are going and plan to livestream and podcast our ass*s off!

We have great content slotted to come your way all next week, like amazing podcasts with the CEOs of Takeoff and Leap, courtesy of our show sponsors Firework, Scandit, and Cleveron, and we will also be livestreaming from the event all week long as emcees for NVIDIA and Lenovo's NRF Innovation Lab.

So to get you into the NRF mood, we are kicking it up a notch with our latest live event on LinkedIn with Quorso CEO Julian Mills on Wednesday, where we will be discussing how to equip district field managers with better tools to do their jobs day in and day out.

Nearly 500 people have already registered to attend!

You can join them by registering here or by clicking on the big image at the top of this email.

And now to today's Fast Five Headlines:

And, in Anne's favorite headline of the year, Yeezy Gap plans to collaborate with Demna, Balenciaga's creative director, and I feel orders of magnitude cooler just for having written that. (Read More)

Be careful out there,

-- Chris, Anne, and the entire Omni Talk team

P.S. It is hard to believe, but back in 2005 Larry David was prescient enough to point out an oddity in retail that predicted where the future was headed (see here or click the video below to learn why).

It only took 15 plus years, advances in mobile technology, and a pandemic to make it all happen!
