Following 10 years working in the enviable role of Retail Director for Tate, I launched my retail consultancy company in 2020, specialising in cultural and heritage enterprise. Paul Ogburn Consultancy Ltd offers a comprehensive service that includes support with maximising income, increasing profitability, business strategies and planning, people development, supply chain and logistics, product development, range planning and buying, financial and operational support, cost efficiencies and sustainability.

I have 40 years’ retail experience across a variety of senior roles, retail sectors and customer demographics, including high street, retail park, department store and the cultural sector with Tate, where my accountability included writing retail strategies and business plans, annual P&L and KPI performance targets, headcount management of more than 150 and its associated costs and the day-to-day operational and stakeholder management across all four Tate galleries.

I can also support with new store concept and design, customer alignment, brand aesthetic and store treatment, project management and the execution of instal and set up. I have designed many stores throughout my career and was the lead director in the deign, treatment, and trading strategy of the 500 square metre Terrace Shop in the Blavatnik extension at Tate Modern.
