Who are the Retail Radicals?
Seismic shifts are occurring across all consumer-facing industries as a result of a new consumer culture empowered by technology. And a new breed of leaders is emerging from traditional retailers and brands who understand the “new normal”, and who are making meaningful changes in their organizations to disrupt the status quo.
These ‘Retail Radicals’ have the courage, conscience and creativity to champion innovation. They are the change agents who anticipate the future, recognize macro trends, and snap their companies out of being stuck in the past, to rethink business models. They innovate game-changing partnerships, cultural shifts, sustainability strategies and technologies to create new consumer-engagement value propositions.
Join host Bonnie D. Graham as she invites you to take an additional Coffee Break with Game-Changers for our series on how radical change agents are redefining the “new normal” on Game-Changing Retail Leaders, Presented by SAP.
