Speaker: Jonathan Reeve
Discussion: How Amazon will disrupt the Australian retail and cpg market
Location: 1 Parliament Place, East Melbourne, VIC 3002
Crimson & Co ANZ held its first ever Client Alumni dinner last Thursday, 12 October 2017 in the Library of the Park Hyatt. We had 20 of our clients from various industries (drinks, retail, pharmancy, health, packaging, services and IT) attending our event.
Our guest speaker for the evening was Jonathan Reeve, E-commerce fulfilment consultant & author at Jonathan Reeve consulting. Jonathan talked us through the way Amazon has built its online business over the years, what causes Amazon to be so successful and their future ventures. We looked at the status of online business at the moment in Australia and what the impact of Amazons arrival down under might and will be. The conclusion was that the approach of setting up online retail, even within existing businesses, will (have to) change dramatically to keep up with the customer’s demands and the options Amazon has got to offer.
We thank Jonathan for an interesting hour and our guests for making this a very successful event.
