IRC (InternetRetailing Conference)

2019 conference programme



Interactive challenge session: Paraphrasing THE WHO: Meet the NEW - same as the OLD

Paraphrasing THE WHO: Meet the NEW - same as the OLD

Human is a pack animal, yet an individual expecting to be excited by things that are new and unique to them, therefore interesting.

Translating that into commerce: Is it better follow the trends or differentiate and rub against the grain?

How to win a constant battle of Follow The Money v Nurture Free Spirit? One is a no-nonsense MO but returns will be shared with many others, other has a big question mark in front of it but the treasure pot might not have to be shared with as many.

The question to ponder on would be: If there are no midpoints, twists or flavours available: Which model are you?
