Retail Doctor Group Fit for Business Breakfast

August 19, 2016

Richard Umbers, CEO of Myer will join Brian Walker, CEO & Founder of Retail Doctor Group for an exclusive discussion on the first year of the New Myer strategy and the future of retailing in Australia.

As the retail sector gets disrupted by the likes of Amazon and Uber reshaping consumer expectations and behaviour, what does the future hold for Australia’s retail sector and one of its most iconic retailers? Is it possible to provide a seamless omni-channel brand experience whilst competing with the increasing number of international entrants entering the market?

Get your questions answered and more this November as Richard Umbers, CEO of Myer, joins Retail Doctor Group at their annual ‘Fit for Business’ Breakfast conference on the Transformation of Australian Retail.

Richard will discuss learnings from the first year of the New Myer strategy and the company’s focus on bringing the love of shopping to life through a program of introducing wanted brands, lifting customer service and developing a strong omni-channel offer.

Inspire your retail team, gain exclusive insights into the New Myer strategy and highly valuable ‘business fitness’ tips from ‘the retail doctor’ Brian Walker, to instantly improve your business’s performance.

Described by The Australian Retailers Association as ‘inspiring’ and ‘insightful’, the Retail Doctor Group ‘Fit for Business’ Breakfast series has successfully run for over six years. A well-respected and high profile event in the retail calendar, the Retail Doctor Group ‘Fit for Business’ Breakfasts have previously hosted high profile guest speakers such as Guy Russo, CEO of Target and Kmart and Peter Birtles of Super Retail Group.

Retail Doctor Group will host this ‘Fit for Business’ Breakfast with Richard Umbers at Melbourne Arts Centre, on 30th November 2016 from 07:30-09:30. Early bird tickets are available now for a limited time only here.

The event proudly supports the charity White Ribbon; Australia’s campaign to prevent men’s violence against women.
