  • More event details

    Everyone’s got something to sell - be it your disused but once beloved golf clubs to a full-blown eCommerce set up. But how do you know which platform to use, what success should look like, and how to get people to visit your site? Do people really buy expensive flights on their phones while on the bus to work? 

    The July Networx event will host three different perspectives from Brisbane - from the powerhouse Super Retail Group to a bloke with a deep interest in beards, we’ll talk tactics, platforms and how these companies set themselves up to succeed. Mobile first strategies, the importance of personalisation and repurchase triggers will be covered. 

    Come along to hear insights in an informal session covering the world of online retailing in 2016.

    Our panel will cover

    • How to start an eCommerce business
    • How to grow an eCommerce business
    • Things that are key for brands in the eCommerce space
    • Marketing tactics that all eCommerce brands should be working on

    Who would benefit from attending

    • Marketing, digital and communication professionals
    • Business owners and directors

Laura Campbell

Laura Campbell

Partner, Deloitte Digital

Laura is a Partner at Deloitte, leading the Marketing, Commerce and Digital Experiences team. She has been living corporate life for over 20 years across various industries. She has shared her desk space with snakes (alive), rare birds (dead), and every spectrum of personality you can imagine.  She is passionate about delivering high quality results for her clients, but doing it in a way that stays true to her personality and passions (which involves a lot of crystals, memes and coloured kaftans).

During COVID, Laura switched her fancy pants, river view desk, for a 15-year-old IKEA desk in the spare room and this sparked her journey of discovery (read: trial and error) into understanding what were the critical factors for creating a successful workspace.
