TBCA Distinguished Speaker Series, Doug Gurr, Head of Amazon UK, Tuesday 30 May



“Amazon: 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.

Bookings for this event have now closed.
