Summary

Digital strategy amid customer chaos

Commerce Futures has always focused upon what is coming next. Those of us struggling to realise a digital ambition in a world crowded with uncertainty and competition sometimes need to take a breath - stop and think.

How do you plan in an environment where channels evolve at their own pace, where customers switch so easily and where world events seem to cause extremes in pricing, consumption and timescales.

Future State was an opportunity to stop - to think about 2023/4 and to apply some structure to your planning. Curated by those who spend their time in the “What’s next” space, we encouraged you to come and learn, to come and share.

PastriesDelegates networkingAudience at a Commerce Futures conference.

We spent our time discussing:

  • Budgeting for the unknown and unplannable
  • Understanding your customers’ behaviour amongst the chaos
  • Getting ready for the “flexible” tech stack
  • Becoming faster to respond - everywhere
