Our Story

Combining over 50 years cumulative retail experience working for some of the largest brands in the country, such as Vodafone, Boots and Costa Coffee, ReThink intrinsically understand every facet of running a business from the bottom-up.

Created back in 2011, ReThink is the brainchild of Simon and Sue Hedaux. After spending many years working in retail and workforce management, the pair spotted a gap in the market. Businesses were caught between strategic targets and operational detail and didn’t know how to harness information on their operation to deliver their goals.

Simon, Sue and the ReThink team know how to combine detailed analysis with efficiency study and benchmarking insights to drive value and create lasting improvements.

"Productivity and efficiency is about so much more than saving costs. It’s about making conscious decisions on the customer offer and constant review of the operating model to keep it aligned and deliver the business objectives."

"I love combining detailed data, benchmark perspectives and industry insider knowledge to create insights that help companies focus on what matters and reduce spend on what doesn’t."
