October 3, 2023, 8.30am-10am, South Place Hotel, London
Geopolitical instability. Sky-high inflation. Ongoing pandemic-led disruption. The macroeconomic environment has been a hostile one for retail finance leaders this year.
Coupled with wavering supply chain reliability, staffing challenges and tightening shopper budgets, leaders are left questioning what lies ahead and how they can best embrace opportunities for profitable growth next year.
Where should they commit spending to achieve long-term growth? Which areas should they be streamlining to enhance efficiencies? And which retailers and brands can they learn from?
Retail Week and Elavon would like to invite you and your industry peers to come together at our exclusive breakfast briefing on October 3 as we explore how best to tackle the challenges of 2024 head-on.
Exclusive to retail finance leaders, the event gives you the chance to hear from our influential guest speaker, Simon French, Chief Economist and Head of Research at UK investment bank Panmure Gordon, as he discusses the challenges for the year ahead and the opportunities that will be worth the investment. French previously worked for the UK government, latterly at the Cabinet Office as chief of staff to the chief operating officer.
Taking place at London’s dynamic South Place Hotel, the breakfast briefing will enable retail’s financial leadership to leave with key strategic takeaways on topics including:
- How to get ahead of the economic pressures set to challenge retailers
- The outlook for cost efficiencies and how retailers are doing more with less
- The investment areas retailers cannot ignore and why – from ESG to CX
