TBCA Distinguished Speaker Series, Doug Gurr, UK Country Manager at Amazon, Tuesday 30 May



“Secrets of an Internet Titan”

Amazon needs no introduction. The iconic brand has grown from its roots as a small online bookstore to become both the pre-eminent universal store and a marketplace for over 2 million third-party sellers, with a market capitalization of over $400 billion.

But Amazon is not a company to stand still. It may now move in a number of directions.

Tonight Doug Gurr will talk about the key features of Amazon’s particular approach, and the challenges it now faces. He will talk about his own journey and how he handled those challenges that he faced along the way. And he will talk about the future, with thoughts on the way internet retailing may develop.

The conversation will be followed by Q&A, and then a reception. To book a place for this event, click here. The meeting will start at 7pm, so please arrive at 6.45pm for registration. Please note this event is open to all alumni.
