Opening Keynote: Disrupting the disruptors


We’ve all heard about how technology is changing the face of retail commerce. From in-app orders picked up in store, to inventory management and ordering, to product scanning and cashier-less checkout, it seems like there is a tidal wave of cloud-based, phone enabled, and crowd-sourced innovations to retail technology and the way customers shop. 


It’s no wonder that many small and medium sized businesses not equipped to make large infrastructure and technological investments feel left out and worried about being able to compete with larger and better-funded competitors. 


In this entertaining and interactive talk, Lee-Anne McAlear will highlight how to take successful innovative strategies from other industries that are also margin-thin and customer-dependent and make them work for small and medium sized c-store business owners.


Change management and innovation specialist Leanne McAlear will teach you how to:

  1. Improve your business (of any size) through strategic innovation
  2. Understand the secrets of successful innovation
  3. Apply the lessons learned from “the big guys” to your business, regardless of size
  4. Put a plan together to help you get started tomorrow on improving your business results
