We are delighted to be Gold Sponsors of the 2018 Velocity: The My Private Brand Conference taking place in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Kieran Forsey, CEO S4RB Inc. & SVP North America will be speaking at the event:
Boosting Performance for Private Brand RetailersIn the new world of private brand, retailers are brand owners tasked with growing and managing the largest brands in the world. Today’s brand managers are leveraging new technology to create a deeper level of collaboration and openness. In this Velocity talk, Kieran will reveal how retailers can boost performance by creating their own online communities with their own suppliers, and better manage their own private brands. The result is greater openness and transparency for their own shoppers.
Kieran will also be moderating the Women Impacting Storebrand Excellence panel discussion entitled Unlocking Real Results Through Diversity.
The panel discussion will cover the following:
The need for diversity has become a higher-profile topic at retail, given its direct impact on interactions with customers and associates. Recently Starbucks closed more than 8,000 company-owned U.S. stores to train some 175,000 employees on the subject of unconscious bias.
This panel discussion will assess how our private brand industry is making progress and how retailers and suppliers can increase their focus on diversity and inclusion. In this session you will hear from a multi-generational panel about their experiences, how society is demanding transformation and the best approaches to accomplishing change.
WISE is a non-profit professional development organization, founded by women, to champion the power of diversity and inclusion which drives profitable growth within the store brand industry.
