Holiday 2020: Fasten Your Seat Belts!
With the retail industry reeling from the converging storm fronts of a global health crisis, massive economic disruption and ongoing civil unrest, Holiday 2020 will be unpredictable, at best. Will customers have the appetite to overcompensate for the past nine months, or will they hold back? Join Robin Lewis and his guests, Jennifer Davis, Managing Director, Head of Retail Investment Banking at Goldman Sachs, Dick Johnson, CEO of Foot Locker and Steve Sadove, former CEO of Saks Fifth Avenue as they deconstruct Holiday 2020. They will take a deep dive into the key socio-economic issues that will influence Holiday including the election, pandemic and consumer confidence, along with operational challenges including supply chain, inventory, distribution, fulfillment, staffing and store closures. And they will deconstruct how inspired leadership and innovation will play a starring role in re-engineering Holiday 2020.
