See why the speakers have committed their time to D3 Retail:

  • Target

    "I really appreciate the foundation and platform you guys have created. The agenda is so well thought out. The six themes that you’ve put together – these are exactly the things we are all struggling with. You’ve just nailed it. And I’m so excited to be participating at D3. This is just amazing!"

    - Mike Passales, VP Omnichannel, Target
  • DSW

    "As I’ve seen this conference grow, there have been more and more high profile brands and extremely talented supply chain leaders that are going to be attending the event. These are people who really are at the forefront of supply chain innovation so for me, I think the thing I look forward to the most is the networking and learning opportunity that’s going to present itself with."

    - Jeff Girard, SVP Logistics, DSW
  • M&S

    "It is the cross-section of views in the room. What I like about the conference is, with the best one in the world (the cross-section), it is not just a bunch of supply chain guys. It is actually a whole cross-section of people with different points of view really coming together to share their experiences, whether it’s people from more broadly based retail background such as myself, or the hard-core supply chain guys or some of the people from the pure digital space like Brett coming from Google. I just think that cross-section of people should create a really stimulating discussion."

    - David Walmsley, Global M&S Digital, M&S
  • Home Depot

    "Getting out to visit with peers of mine in different organisations and swapping stories and hearing what works and what doesn’t, hopefully. I know I’ll pick up some for sure and if I can share anything from a Home Depot perspective, that might help somebody avoid a lot of pain in the future then happy to do so. So just really excited about the event and getting to see my peers and the different folks that are out there."

    - Scott Spata, VP Supply Chain, Home Depot
  • John Lewis

    "The thing I’ve been impressed with D3 is the way that the event is structured. Many of us have been on many speed-dating events where you’re passed from one supplier to the next. D3 certainly doesn’t feel that way. The structure and the agenda is incredibly well thought out. Personally looking forward to listening to some of the really interesting speakers that are on show at the conference. And obviously the learnings, the benchmarking and networking is invaluable – so I’m really looking forward to it."

    - John Munnelly, Head of Operations, John Lewis
  • Lacoste

    "The knowledge from the panel of speakers presenting at the D3 summit is going to be invaluable. The world of supply chain is changing every second and the D3 Summit will ensure that you and your company are up to speed and don’t fall behind."

    - Seth Beardsley, Senior Director of Supply Chain & Member of Executive Leadership Team, Lacoste
  • birchbox

    "I’m really looking forward to meeting everybody else and seeing what they do in their businesses because as we know in operations, what works for one person may not work for another business at all. So I’m really excited to learn what other unique ways there are of doing things that we may decide that we can improve upon."

    - Pooja Agarwal, VP Operations, Birchbox
  • Tompkins International

    "It’s not about hearing case studies of what people have done over the last three years, it’s about what’s going to be happening next year and the explosion of new thought and the total transformation of the industry because of the Dynamic Distribution Disruption that is being required by the marketplace and is being demanded that we match because of our competition. I think it’s going to be a really cool event with a lot of people talking about and understanding where are we going. So this is not about where the basketball is, it’s about where is it going and how to be there in time to really claim market share. So I think it’ll be really exciting."

    - Jim Tompkins, CEO, Tompkins International
