Retail Week Live

Retail Week LIVE is for those leading the change. The C-Suite decides on the strategic direction. The front-line managers turning those plans into reality. The rising stars are disrupting everything the C-Suite thinks they know.

It’s where ideas are shared, strategies are debated and solutions are formed. A space that stimulates conversation and collisions – of both ideas and people.

Keynote speaker

Espen Karlsen, CEO, Jernia

The “new normal” was an oft-repeated phrase during lockdown. How have customer expectations shifted post-pandemic? And what does that mean for the customer experience retailers now need to offer? We’ll hear from three leaders on the trends, opportunities and challenges they’re observing in their own businesses, and what this signifies for a post-pandemic future.

Jernia AS is a Norwegian based holding, marketing and distribution company for hardware, tools, paint, grills, household items, kitchen equipment and interiors. They run 130 stores around Norway.

Espen has led Jernia since April 2017, with a strong focus on customer satisfaction. He is convinced that the future of retail lies in making a meaningful contribution to the green transition.

Keynote speaker

André Pedersen, COO, Bjørklund

In all retail segments, prior positive in-store experience is 3 to 10 times more important than advertising and promotions to ensure footfall to your store. The challenge therefore is how do you ensure your front-line staff are focusing on what matters to maximise footfall during 2023.

Bjørklund is a Norwegian based jewellery retail franchise chain with 88 stores, and more than 30 years of experience. André Pedersen is Retail Manager/COO for the Norwegian market leader within watch and jewelry-retail. He has broad retail leadership experience, all the way from regional management to upper management.
