Kevin Coupe Logile Simplify 2019 Keynote Speaker

We are excited to announce Kevin Coupe as your Simplify 2019 keynote speaker! Kevin is a renowned retail and food business industry expert, author and founder.

As prime storyteller and “content guy” with more than 35,000 subscribers, Kevin curates business news and offers both context and analysis with an irreverent attitude—he calls it “serious levity”—that has been honed by more than 30 years of writing about retail and the food business.

A frequent speaker at business conferences, Kevin is also the author of “Retail Rules! 52 Ways to Achieve Retail Success” and the co-author, with Michael Sansolo, of “The Big Picture: Essential Business Lessons From the Movies,” which uses film narratives to teach about leadership, marketing and surviving the workplace.

Kevin is a member of the adjunct faculty at Portland State University’s Center for Retail Leadership in Oregon. He is currently is working on a sequel to “The Big Picture,” a novel and a screenplay.
