John B. Foreman, B.Arch, RPC, ASID, FBDS, FFGI, ANZCSC


Soon after graduation in 1962 John had the opportunity to enter the retail industry as the Store Planning Designer for a multi level department store. This began a life time and passion for all channels in retail from Malls to boutiques. He pursued every opportunity in the UK, Sweden and Denmark with positions such as Design Manager for a national fashion chain, finally having his own practice in London. His client base was spread from as far east as Stockholm, as far west as New York, and from Scotland in the north to Malta in the south.

He was fortunate to have as teachers and mentors some of the best in the industry, who furnished his repertoire with specialised knowledge in retail psychology with its specific human drivers. In 2006 he created his own name for this specialised psychology as RBP (Retail Behavioral Psychology) a science that is becoming recognised worldwide as the birthplace of RETAILTAINMENT.

In search of lifestyle, he selected to share his skills with the knowledge hungry retail industry in the Southern Hemisphere, arriving in New Zealand in 1967 where he still enjoys his home base, although his passion for retail takes him to many countries as the Lead Retail Consultant to major retail developments, City Centre REVITALIZATION projects and as a speaker at conferences.

From 2000 he was also recognised as as speaker and author on Retail Psychology. This site will continue to be added to as the industry is developed over time.
