Brian McBride Chairman ASOS speaker GPeC SUMMIT Bucharest Romania - The most important E-Commerce Event in Central and Eastern Europe

Speaker Brought To You By:

logo_fan

Brian starts with a brief outline of Moore’s law, which has made electronic products faster, smaller, cheaper. And Darwin’s theory of evolution shows us you need to adapt or you die. We saw the tech industry fail to adapt quickly enough, and watched Netscape, Dec, Compaq, Ashton Tate, Kodak, Nokia and others disappear. There are lessons here for all industries from Moore’s Law and Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.
Brian talks about the drivers of the growth of E-Commerce, how it is all about mobile and  the smartphone. The mobile revolution started only 10 years ago when I-Phone was launched. Now the mobile screen is the most looked at screen in our home. Brian talks about the need to be data driven, and how to connect with and engage with audiences. Brian talks about the importance of social media and engagement marketing in a world where traditional retail is under continuous pressure, and why because of a lack of customer knowledge they are losing share to E-Commerce pure-plays. Traditional retail is existentially threatened. And it’s not just retail – every consumer facing industry and business from banking to leisure is equally threatened. Brian talks about the need for personalisation, how companies like ASOS apply machine learning to the vast reservoirs of customer data to narrow 80k sku’s down to 10 tailored recommendations. And how to exploit digital marketing, leveraging Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat to get to the right audience. And how to use celebrity fashion – Taylor Swift, princess Kate to bring it all to life for our customers.
