Encore: Fashion Disruption: Goliaths Fall
May 8, 2019
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Fashion has stumbled along for years without a particularly influential infusion of new ideas. But all of that is changing, and it is happening quickly" (Nadya Khoja www.business.com). The barriers to entry for new fashion houses continue to drop. Digitally native fashion companies arrive with little to no legacy process or technology issues, able to scale fast to beat the big companies. But regardless of size, they all have to get it right the first time or risk game-ending losses and near-instant irrelevance. Everyone is getting disrupted. The disruptors, and those who ride the wave, will be the long-term winners. The experts speak. Noah Gellman, The Lead: “In this great future we cannot forget our past” (Bob Marley). Oliver Stocks, SAP: “Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise” (Sigmund Freud). Rick Barber, SAP: “I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work” (Thomas Edison). Join us for Fashion Disruption: Goliath’s Fall.
Game-Changing Retail Leaders, presented by SAP
Wednesday at 11 AM Pacific Time/2 PM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
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.
