    Digital retail technology is being transformed at an incredible rate. The eCommerce tooling from just 5 yrs ago is being replaced by “Point” software solutions that knit together to vastly improved merchandising, content and service offerings to shoppers, but the journey is not straightforward

    Giles Smith is a serial offender and has completed this journey once, and is doing it all over again in a global luxury retailer. In a fireside chat he will focus on:

    • The measurable benefits of a solution “composed” specifically for you
    • Living with the “Minimal viable Product”
    • Selecting vendors without an RFP
    • Focusing on the “Head” in headless

    Frankie offers a unique vision for those used to the status quo of “retail”. His first business, the sportswear brand TCA was an “Amazon brand”, where he focused on “Any channel” rather than Omnichannel. His latest venture Pott’d is once again using the paid media and social channels to both test product and drive demand - as well as being (of course) a marketplace seller at scale.

    From Frankie’s inspiring Keynote you will take away:

    • A greater understanding of the Amazon seller world - at scale

    • Balancing demand generation across the channels

    • Amazon v Shopify channels

    • The founder mentality and resilience needed

    The eCommerce sector has shifted fundamentally in the last 18 months. New analytics from Google, new flexible platform offerings - and a customer trained increasingly by social media. 

    Nick’s challenge when joining Raging Bull was to strip out an ageing stack and refocus back on the fundamentals of eCommerce trading. A new tech stack, control of all the promotional channels and good practice was Phase One.  Phase two is additive, new tooling to drive engagement and conversion, but using a test & learn policy.
