Tony Stockil will open the conference, introducing the major themes of the morning and drawing on his perspective as the CEO of Javelin Group to describe the changes across the sector and the strategies necessary for success.
Tony is the founder of Javelin Group, which provides strategy consulting and digital transformation services to the world’s leading retailers and consumer brands, and is now part of Accenture Strategy.
After an early career as a strategy consultant and an MBA at Harvard Business School, Tony established Javelin Group at the beginning of the ecommerce revolution in 1997 to help major retailers to embrace multi-channel retail and improve their competitiveness by anticipating and responding to the rapid changes in customer shopping habits and retail technologies.
Javelin Group, which serves retailers and brand leaders across Europe, North America, the Middle East, China and Australia, also supports clients on their store formats and estates and on their international expansion.
In June 2015, Javelin Group was acquired by Accenture Strategy to expand its capabilities in helping the world’s leading retailers and consumer brands accelerate their digital transformation.
