September 27, 2018
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Technology is permeating and disrupting every aspect of distribution today” (www.fortna.com). Reality check for wholesale distributors: winning and retaining customers is highly competitive. How are industry leaders staying relevant and leapfrogging competitors? They’re developing innovative business models, using their vast data, simplifying and improving the way they work, and enabling their employees to help grow the business. The experts speak. Mark Dancer, Network for Channel Innovation: “There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder" (Ronald Reagan). Guy Blissett, Deloitte: “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning” (Sir Winston Churchill). Paul Pretko, SAP: “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity” (Seneca). Join us for Staying Competitive in Wholesale Distribution: You and the Value Chain.
