David West is well placed to provide Australia's first text on mainstreet management, having over 25 years retail management and consulting experience.

About his new book he says, ‘Mainstreet Management: Successful Retail Strategies’ describes my journey from successfully managing shopping centres and mainstreets and the lessons learnt along the way.  The book  includes practical information about managing mainstreets and city centres, and overcoming challenges created by diverse environments in addition to examples and case studies supported by practical and effective strategies that can be applied to mainstreets and city centres.

"David has managed to achieve a really honest broker approach whilst keeping it personal, detailed and above all relevant and interesting! I think every Town Centre Manager, Business Improvement District employee and Council staff member should read it", Sarah Porter, Chief Executive, Heart of London Business Alliance (2000 - 2016).
