We’re excited to join the stellar line up of speakers at this years’ Retail Week Live. If you’re heading to the event at The InterContinental, O2 today or tomorrow, make sure you come and say hello!

Today, Karina van den Oever will host a panel discussion on ‘Retail AI: Transforming how we live, shop, work and play’ at 14:55 in The Flagship. Join the conversation as we explore where AI can take us as a society and how quickly this might happen in retail and beyond.

Karina will be joined by Paul Clarke, CTO at Ocado, Andy Done, Director of Data Engineering at Farfetch, Sia Houchangnia, Partner at Seedcamp and Danielle Haguedal-Wilson, Head of Architecture and Analysis at Co-op Digital. The stage is set for an interesting discussion across a wide variety of perspectives.

Thursday, 8th March is day 2 and our very own Brandon Bichler is teaming up with Chirag Patel, COO, Pentland Brands. In The Boutique at 11.30, they’ll be delving deep into how retailers can get the best outside-in thinking into their organisations and benefit from the thousands of startups and vibrant new thinking taking place in Silicon Valley.

Retail Week Live brings together over 150 world-class speakers from across retail and other industries to inspire leaders on the latest trends and developments. 90% of the Top 20 British retailers are set to attend over the next two days.
