Retail in 5 Years: Digital Dinosaurs vs Survivors - Part 2
February 15, 2017
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Whoever said money can't buy happiness simply didn't know where to go shopping” (Bo Derek). Ongoing digital innovations in our hyper-connected world have dramatically impacted consumer buying behaviors and expectations, challenging retailers to change or become obsolete. Smart retailers are already taking action to avoid becoming dinosaurs. But is it too late for the laggards? The experts speak. Brian Kilcourse, Retail Systems Research: “Amazon and online sales is killing traditional retail, and what’s true there is going to be true throughout our economy” (U.S. President Barack Obama, Jan. 2017). Doug Stephens, Retail Prophet: “We try to rationalize why innovations from other sectors don’t apply to us, rather than focusing on why they do” (George Blankenship, Apple, Tesla, GAP). Greg McStravick, SAP: “There is nothing wrong with change if it is in the right direction” (Sir Winston Churchill). Join us for Retail in 5 Years: Digital Dinosaurs vs Survivors – Part 2.
