09:20 - 09:40 Keynote: Building A Dynamic Customer Relationship- Getting Ahead Of Customer Expectations Rather Than Falling Behind

Mark Wright, Director of Omni-Channel,B&Q
Do You Have The Appetite For Change?

52% of consumers are less likely to buy again after a single bad digital experience. If your customer has to wait longer than a split second for a webpage to load, or if you cannot deliver a rich & seamless multichannel experience, that customer could be lost forever. Perhaps the biggest barriers are our legacy systems, which keep us living in the past. But their replacement requires huge investment and disruption- do you have the appetite for major change?

Consumers want personalisation - they want to be shown the right content at the moment when it matters to them most. But delivering personalisation is challenging as it requires lots of data and systems to make the experience between retailers and consumers seamless. In this panel, veteran retail thought leaders will open up the discussion about personalisation and share their thoughts on what works, what has failed them and what they see coming in the next few years.

How To Adapt eCommerce, IT, Operations & Warehousing To Get The Product Into The Customers Hands

Same-day-shipping services are changing consumer behavior, and fast. With Amazon & Google making big delivery plays, the clock is ticking on traditional retailers who need new ways to lure customers. In this new world, speed of ordering and speed of delivery is the name of the game. So, what will become the new delivery expectation in 2016? Same day home delivery? Reserve and collect next day instore? This panel is actively investing to answer this question and close their stock fulfillment gaps:

• How much will it cost & does incremental loyalty increase ROI from a same-day delivery program?
• How can you make the delivery experience come to life in a way that is commercially sustainable?
• Do you have the demographic and customer base to support next day delivery?
• Is there a magic fix for predictive management of stock?

In this session, Jamie gives a revelatory examination of the internet today, and of its most innovative and dangerous subcultures. You’ll get a glimpse of human nature under the conditions of freedom and anonymity, and shine a light on this enigmatic and ever-changing world.

Hear from four retailers who are adding offline data to online data, and using offline triggers to drive online sales:

• Identifying shoppers instore to sharpen the single view of the customer
• Transitioning instore systems to drive engagement rather than just keep records

Delivering a fast and convenient payment portal has been top of the retail agenda for the past five years. We’ve seen countertops, mobile terminals, tablets and countless cash register combinations come and go. So what is the latest thinking on the high street? And crucially, will we see mass industry scale-up of a certain technology within the next 12 months, or just another year of deliberations? Martin’s role at Forrester answer is to answer that question and prepare eTailers for the year ahead:

• Conduct a cost benefit analysis of instore mobile payments
• Use the payment portal to collect accurate customer data and tailor promotions accordingly
• Offer a seamless solution for mobile, online and instore transactions to accept any type of payment, anywhere in the world

16:40 - 17:00 Future Of Retail - Game Changers For Retail Revolution Dan Stone, Retail Director,Watches of Switzerland
There are no square footage constraints online. Retail space is endless. So coming up with ways to showcase the full catalogue was a huge challenge for Watches of Switzerland. Damian and his team are achieved this by incorporating digital instore elements in ways that add value without adding gimmicks.

Top takeaways include:
• Use your store as an engagement tool, rather than a ‘hard-sell’ space
• Use your store as a testing ground, rather than a full showroom
• Make the most of instore POS to convert the sale on the spot

People are very helpful, given half a chance. Your customers will tell you what they want and how to make your site work better, if you’ll just let them. For Ward, surveys are the secret, with the focus on insight, conversation and action. And for LEGO, keeping the customer central in this way has created an incredible connection between the brand and customer. Here Ward highlights his most recent successes in LEGO customer feedback:

• Directing your limited customer feedback resource to the most effective methods
• Rectifying problems before your customer publicises their bad experience via social media.
• Identifying your brand promoters early and keeping them loyal
