Conference programme released for The Retail & eCommerce Directors' Forum 2017


Image result for Neil Saunders Conlumino Landscape

Each year we work closely with our conference Chairman, Neil Saunders, to create a programme which we feel really reflects the challenges in the industry. The theme for this year’s programme will be Retail: the era of engagement, experience and entertainment

Reflecting on 2016 and moving into 2017, Neil believes that:  
  • Consumer behaviour is changing, it is no longer enough to simply provide a space for ‘purchasing’, shoppers are now looking for a greater experience.
  • Retail spaces need to be exciting in order to entice consumers, who he believes, are becoming increasing bored of the high-street.
  • This must be reflected, not only on the high-street but online too. A seamless omni-channel experience is now expected by shoppers.
  • These changes have created a new set of ‘rules’ in the Retail world that must be acknowledged in order to survive & succeed.
We have strongly considered this when developed the content for the programme and we have a great calibre of industry experts who will be delivering examples of how their business has adapted in line with these rules.
 
We will be providing regular updates announcing the speakers, however, if you would like further information in the interim please do not hesitate to contact me.

Opening Address: Ben Hammersley


We are delighted to announce that Ben Hammersley, author, futurist and technologist will open the 2014 Digital Marketing Forum.

Ben specialises in the effects of the Internet and the ubiquitous digital network on the world's political, cultural and social spheres.

See what Ben will present at The Digital Marketing Forum on Wednesday 12th March 2014, in the video below.

Firstly, Ben will look at the global economic landscape, on the basis that everything that happens globally will ultimately affect people’s lives in the UK.

He will then link this macro view back to digital marketing – what is its role and importance, where is it heading and (most importantly) is that the right direction?

No death by PowerPoint, just no holds barred insights into current digital brand activity, the ‘next big things’ to hit and actionable take-aways for everyone.

Ben Hammersley is presently the Prime Minister’s ambassador to Tech City, Europe’s centre of innovation. Additionally, Ben sits on the Tech City Advisory Board.

Ben is also a fellow at The Brookings Institute in Washington, Royal College of Defence Studies and innovator-in-residence at the Centre for Creative and Social Technologies, University of London. 

In 2012 Ben wrote the acclaimed book ’64 things you need to know now for then’, a guide to the new concepts of the modern world.

Michael Portillo confirmed as the opening keynote speaker – Britain and Europe: coaltion and rupture


Michael-Portillo.pngIn our opening keynote this Autumn, Michael will explain what went wrong with the coalitions policy for growth and how economic improvement will remain elusive as long as the euro crisis continues. As Europe seeks to create a political union and is absorbed with its currency, Michael will share his views on why it is distracted from the bigger problem in play - how to reduce the size of government to regain competitiveness. 
 
Joining Michael on the keynote speaker line-up will be Dr. Steve Peters, Psychiatrist with Team GB and Author who will share his successful mind management programme that has been used to help elite athletes to optimise the functioning of their mind by understanding how it works. Followed by Professor Stephen Carver from Cranfield University sharing his unique perspective on ‘How not to make a catastrophe out of a crisis.’
