Brewer’s keynote titled “Navigating Retail’s Relentless Reality: What CEOs Are Doing to Thrive in a Consumer-Driven World” will reveal key findings from a recent global retail CEO survey on how market disruptions are impacting the retail industry. JDA commissioned PricewaterhouseCoopers and Forbes Insights to survey more than 400 retail chief executives and interview 18 retail CEOs to gain deeper insights on the outlook for growth and risks, investment priorities, challenges and strategies to evolve their retail enterprises.
The keynote will be followed by a CEO panel moderated by Rich Karlgaard, publisher of Forbes magazine. The panel, featuring Brewer and Ken Hicks, chairman and CEO of Foot Locker, will share insights on why current and next-generation CEOs must evolve their operating models to lead through the radical and unforeseen changes that sure to impact the retail industry.
“The retail landscape is on the midst of a major paradigm shift,” said Brewer. “As mobile commerce comes of age, technology disruptions and fast-changing consumer expectations are forcing retail CEOs to re-evaluate their entire enterprise – people, process, partners and the technology that supports them – and alter their business model to drive top- and bottom-line growth. To eliminate a structural break, CEOs must move beyond simply plugging leaky buckets and take a more strategic approach to building a sustainable and profitable operating model.”
“What this keynote and panel session will uncover are ways CEOs can shift their capital investments and business priorities to thrive, as well as apply innovations and link strategic supply chain to the heart of the business,” said Brewer.
