Dorien was basically born in retail. As a baby, she crawled around in her family's sports store. Her most valuable lesson? Listen to your customer.

Dorien provides a compelling vision of how technology and changing consumer behavior will shape retail in the coming years. An industry that has undergone major changes: from traditional brick-and-mortar stores to the rise of e-commerce, and the train of change will not stop anytime soon. Big data, unified commerce, Metaverse, AI, sustainability, etc. are hot topics. Dorien will make sure you’ll catch the train of change.

Technology has become an integral part of contemporary life, but how will we live and consume in this virtual world? Will consumers be willing to take action against climate change themselves and drastically change their buying habits? Will we still own things ourselves or will we rent, borrow and share? What will be the role of physical stores? Will the future of global retail be local? What do customers want? How will they buy and consume goods in the future?
