The Shoptalk 2018 Conference was an amazing convention, brimming with smart people and key learnings. But for those lucky enough to be at our breakfast and cocktail reception, it was so much more: it was a place where some real relationships were built with trust and honesty. I am thrilled to have been a part of this incredible event. Here’s some insights from our breakfast event.
The Shoptalk 2018 conference was full of excellent information, great speakers and leaders, and a ton of thought-provoking material. Heather Harris, Senior Advisor for Remodista shares her takeaways from the conference with four fabulous brands: CaaStle, Fabletics, Google, and Nike.
CaaStle: Business Models are Changing
We live in a world of non-traditional business models where omni-channel is an outdated word. Traditional retail as we know it is dead. What’s alive and well is new thinking and new approaches to solving customer needs
Our founder and CEO, Kelly Stickel was a guest on the podcast, Fashion is Your Business. Kelly appeared with Flora and Fauna founder and CEO, Julie Mathers. Both of these women were also involved with Inside Retail Live, which you can read about in our event recap.
What a week we had in Melbourne! In addition to holding our Born to Disrupt workshop, Remodista was a big part of Inside Retail Live — an unmissable three-day event where retail leaders from around the world gather to share ideas, connect, and celebrate successes. It felt like all of Melbourne was involved with Inside Retail Live. We had the chance to see Charlie Cole, Chief Digital Officer of Tumi and Global Chief eCommerce Officer of Samsonite give a keynote speech; we visited retail stores in Melbourne and explored the theme of retail in Australia; and — best of all — we inspired women leaders!
Our Born to Disrupt workshop in Melbourne was an immense success! We had nearly 20 leaders in attendance – predominantly women – representing a diverse selection of industries including real estate, supply chain, in-store retail, writing, and more. This unique mix of people set the stage for a collaborative conversation. Afterward, attendees reported that they had gained a lot from the time spent working through difficult workplace and personal questions. That sentiment reinforces what we already know to be true: the hard conversations pay off for those who are looking to develop their personal and professional confidence.
