Keynote topics

Curation is the ‘New Black’

With information everywhere, the ‘Paradox of Choice’ is a challenge for both retailers and customers alike. Today’s multichannel customer has thousands of options and while artificial intelligence (AI) is personalizing the experience, consumers are increasingly seeking a curated way to shop and are placing more value on the old-fashioned idea of getting someone else’s opinion. Technology can scale this in the order of 1000s of online visitors at a time.  

The Low Cost of High Touch

Brands are investing huge amounts in technology to reduce friction, create scale and build effective business models that allows the customer to self-serve, reducing the need for costly, human interaction. BUT, the real winners are the brands that are investing more, not less, in knowledgeable humans to offer insightful guidance and personalize the engagement with the brand like never before.

Divided by a Common Language

America is sometimes referred to as the graveyard where British brands go to die. Expanding your business from the UK to the US is tantalising for those that have achieved success in one market but are tempted by the vast opportunities across the pond. This presentation demonstrates the misconceptions and challenges that brands face when considering the US, revisits the myth that so few succeed, and offers insight into how to achieve growth.

The Outspoken Token

As a female navigating through a non-traditional portfolio career, Gabrielle has has some enlightening and sometimes heartbreaking experiences as one of the few women in the room. This presentation recounts experience working with many companies, from startups to enterprises, with examples of unconscious bias and the ways the female experience is being redefined.
