The Energizing Women's Wear Daily Apparel & Retail Summit

This week, I had the great pleasure of attending the Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) Apparel & Retail Summit, held at New York City’s iconic Plaza Hotel.  The Summit is attended by CEOs and Presidents in the apparel and retail industry and is designed as a forum to discuss critical issues of the day, gain a sense of future issues and direction, and hear case studies and real solutions to these issues.  Topics included:

-       The Changing Face of Commerce

-       The Future of China

-       Designers + Brands–Striking the Right Balance

-       The Inversion of Influence

-       Rethinking Leadership for the 21st Century

-       And More

It’s always so motivating and revitalizing to be in the company of the titans of the industry and to listen to their personal views and experiences.  I left feeling quite energized.
