Few industries have been spared the impact of ‘digital disruption’. There has been a seismic shift in retail in how customers think, behave, shop, and connect with brands and each other. The evolution, connection and integration of the digital universe and traditional retail will be hotly discussed by our captains of industry.

Established in 1931, WHL is unrelated to retailers elsewhere in the world with the same name. WHL owns a number of Australia’s most iconic retail brands - Country Road Retail Group, including Witchery, Trenery and Mimco fashion & accessories labels across 500 stores, and David Jones, Australia’s leading premium department store operator, with 38 stores.

Craig Dower is the CEO of Salmat. With 30 years in the ICT industry, Craig has extensive experience in leading organisational change. Previously as President, APAC and China for Avanade Inc. He has led several successful business turnarounds and taken those companies to new levels of growth and profitability.
