New Retail Leaders is an initiative by Proximis in the light of Retail’s ongoing upheaval after coming to the realisation that Retail key stake-holders were not ready to face the changes brought about and the trends accelerated by the pandemic. Despite large investments made on online infrastructure, few e-shops are yet able to meet customers’ new buying behaviours. Moreover, with stores forced to close or limit footfall, omnichannel has taken a toll. After building expertise over the past decade through multiple Retail projects and delivering Unified Commerce projects across various cities, Proximis wanted to give the opportunity to bold and enthusiastic Retail Leaders to learn and share practical business cases around innovation and technology that will be shaping the future of Retail.




The Renaissance

When reality is unpredictable, the biggest jeopardy is not taking any risk. Indeed, in the uncertain prevailing climate, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is failure to reconsider the way things are done and inaction.

Risk nonetheless ought to be measured and the New Retail Leaders come together precisely to gather thoughts and insight to make sure they are well-informed as they take major decisions for their businesses everyday. If you are a Retail Activist, you have a place amongst the New Retail Leaders community which will serve in helping you to better envision and prepare for the Retail Revolution.

New Retail

The adage “age of digital disruption” has never sounded more appropriate than currently. As the world is changing at an unstoppable pace, we believe keeping an open-mind and open-eye, just like one would on a chess board, is crucial for the Retail Leaders who understand the importance of planning the next move ahead. The New Retail Leaders will tackle the question of Retail Revolution and join their minds to share about best practices in the New Retail age.
