A discussion on the people behind the performance in multichannel retail.
In the spirit of ’summer reading’ and bookclubs, we asked our community on Linkedin what books they were reading on retail, and which authors would they like to hear us interview in the studio. As a result we’re pleased that four of the most-suggested authors agreed to brave the oppressive humidity of a London ’summer’ day to chat with us about their latest books, their experiences, motivations and ideas.
"Authors" is probably not the best description since our group are retailers, entrepreneurs, technologists, analysts... who have happened to write books.
Our conversation covers customers, culture, Amazon, technology, university education and the process of writing
Run time: 65 minutes.
