Speaking at 'Internet Retailing' and 'Apps World' conferences

At short notice (I learned at 12:15pm today!) I am giving a speech and presentation as part of the Internet Retailing Conference at Novotel Hammersmith, London, tomorrow.

I'll be replacing my CIO, JJ VanOosten who has had to pull out at short notice.

Given that I wrote his presentation, JJ kindly suggested that I may as well go and present it myself!

I'll be replacing JJ in this conference stream (link goes to conference stream page). on "How To Win In The Digital World of Retail". Yes well I think I know something about that! I'll be talking about how we have applied innovation in the digital world of retail to make the experience better for customers, simpler for staff and cheaper for Tesco.

I'll also be covering the same subject at two more events:

MBlox are hosting a mobile retail event at the Paramount Club on the 31st floor of Centre Point, Tottenham Court Road on 21st October. I'll be joining Orange, Firezza, Virgin Active and my good friends at the IMRG discussing innovation in mobile.

Apps World conference is taking place at Kensington Olympia in London on 30th November - 1st December. I'll be covering mobile innovation in the keynote speech at 9:30am.

It would be great to meet you at any of these events - you can learn from me and I can learn from you. Sounds like a deal?

Post a Comment

As this blog grows in readership - and because it carries the Tesco brand - I have had to become more careful about the sort of comments that are acceptable. The good news is that I'm a champion of free speech so please be as praising or as critical as you wish! The only comments I DON'T allow through are:

1. Comments which criticise an individual other than myself, or are critical of an organisation other than Tesco. This is simply because they cannot defend themselves so is unfair and possibly libellous. Comments about some aspect of Tesco being better/worse than another equivalent organisation are allowed as long as you start by saying "in my personal opinion.." or "I think that...". ... followed by a "...because.." and some reasoned argument.

2. Comments which are totally unrelated to the context of the original article. If I have written about a mobile app and you start complaining about the price of potatoes then your comment isn't going stay for long!

3. Advertising / web links / spam.

4. Insulting / obscene messages.

Ok, rules done - now it's your go:
