The Philippine Retailers Association (PRA), the national organization of retailers, shopping malls and suppliers in the country, continues to take strides to provide comprehensive programs to equip the entire spectrum of the industry with an array of learning opportunities with the 2nd Retail Leaders Summit on Oct. 24, 2023 at Dusit Thani Manila in Makati City.
The first face-to-face summit, with the theme “Retail Rewired: Leadership in a Time of Change,” evolved into a crucial platform that unites visionaries, learners, researchers, developers, and industry builders designed to bolster both the personal growth of present and future leaders and the business expansion of enterprises.
It underscores the importance of embracing ongoing transformations and empowering leaders with the necessary tools and mindset to excel in these dynamic times. Consequently, this year’s focus centers on six core competencies: retail leadership, shopper engagement, emerging channels, store experience, people-driven talent development and brand strategy.
PRA president Roberto Claudio Sr., who’s also the chairman emeritus of Quorum Holdings Corp. (Toby’s Sports), said the summit is not just about preparing the industry for what’s on the horizon; it’s about fostering growth and facilitating success for all participants.
“This represents a remarkable opportunity for leaders who are dedicated to enhancing their leadership prowess. The summit stands as a platform to forge a personal network that will amplify your abilities, support your team, and undoubtedly, bolster your respective organizations,” he said.
The summit expects to draw a crowd of over 200 business leaders, top executives, senior and middle managers, supervisors, SMEs, start-ups, entrepreneurs and cross-sector organizations and promises to be a momentous and groundbreaking gathering.
It provides an invaluable platform for delving into how leaders and organizations are reevaluating their core skills and adopting adaptable strategies to enhance productivity, efficiency, and competitiveness in the ever-evolving landscape.
