My digital artefact explored the future of retail with the rise of e-commerce in the long term future of 10-20 years. This curiosity stemmed from the threats I had observed from my role as an Assistant Manager for a Surf Dive n Ski store , and the threats of e-commerce and the added impact of COVID-19.
E-commerce and COVID-19 in a way teamed up, Covid-19 stopped people from being outside therefore people had to turn to E-commerce for there desired wants and needed essentials like food.

To the future of Retail.. I crafted this Digital Artefact around my own curiosity in considering the long term future of retail with e-commerce on a fast pace rise. This included the entire retail sector not just the one I work in (clothing) – this was supermarkets, discount stores, outlets, market places and even your beach side malls. What was there future, what would this impact if E-commerce took complete control.
In the form of three blog posts #1 Retail Vs E-com and #2 The Covid Impact. The third and final instalment for this project will soon be released which I think will be fitting for the conclusions and final thoughts for the topic.

My tweeting was therefore non-existent but I finally got the hang of it and let me tell you its genuinely one of my favourite parts in my week. My Thursday mornings now consist of pilates, come back with coffee in hand, pop on the couch, set up the screening, popcorn for breakfast and away we go.
My approach to tweeting has been to be informative about the movie, humorous to some degree and craft ideas whilst engaging with fellow peers who both share similar or different views on the screening.
Here are the past 2 weeks of tweets, which is what I have been able to attend thus far. First up :
From our own Pitches to others, to give praise, recommendation and feedback is a delightful opportunity. Below are the three peers’s pitches I chose to give comment to and a summary and self reflection of my own feedback for each.

I have decided to do the Future of Retail – long term (10-20 years). As explained in the pitch it will focus on the threats to the retail industry that has come from the rise in e-commerce and impact of COVID-19.
