Modern retailers face many challenges, from managing daily operations at their stores to transforming business for future growth. How do retailers get ahead with tools that combine the best of digital and in-store to deliver personal, seamless, and differentiated customer experiences by empowering people and capturing insights to drive growth?

Join Microsoft, Adobe and NORA on Thursday 21 September, as we discuss Personalisation – how to better engage with your customer through data-fuelled personalised experiences.

Hosted by Microsoft’s Retail Industry Executive, Marcella Larsen with guest speakers:

  • Scott Rigby, Head of Digital Transformation for Asia Pacific, Adobe
  • Bill Burton, Group General Manager, Brand & Media Experience, Scentre Group (Westfield)
  • Paul Greenberg, founder and Executive Director, NORA
  • Nick Wells, Senior Store Manager, Microsoft
  • Leon Condon, CEO, Engagis (Microsoft Retail ISV)

Join us as we:

  • Demonstrate how Microsoft, Adobe and Sapient Razorfish are transforming the customer experience at Sephora using data and machine learning to change business models.
  • Discuss why it takes a combination of simplifying the customer shopping experience and leveraging predictive analytics to anticipate the needs of each customer to provide an offer that resonates and keeps them coming back.
  • Dive into why the lack of data is not the biggest challenge for most Australian retailers - but rather the ability to use and interpret data for content, product and service offerings.
