Enjoy an evening of networking with your fellow Hull alumni on roof top terrace overlooking the Thames, and take par in a topical discussion with some of our most senior figures in the world of retail. We’ll be asking if changes in consumer expectations and behaviour might spell the end of the traditional high street, or if retailers can adopt new strategies to transform the highstreet experience and rejuvenate our city centres as a retail destination.

The event will take the form of a panel discussion with three exceptional alumni answering questions from both the Chair, academic Dr Victoria-Sophie Osburg, and you the audience. So bring your questions and ideas and put them to our panel of experts.

Chair:

Dr Victoria-Sophie Osberg’s research focuses on ethical/sustainable and responsible consumer behaviour, both, in the traditional retailing as well as e-tailing context. Her work has been published in leading journals, including the Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Business Research, Tourism Management and Journal of Cleaner Production.

Speakers:

Catherine Nunn (Chemistry, 1990) is the Chief Executive of Lakeland and brings a wealth of experience as a senior, broad-based, multi-lingual Retail leader with UK and international blue-chip Retail, Service, Strategic Partnerships and Omni-channel expertise.

Her career has spanned top tier Business Consulting, Organisational Change Management and Senior Leadership roles in Technology.

She brings a wide range of retail experience including at blue-chip companies such as Debenhams and House of Fraser, and now at entrepreneur owned Jojo Maman Bebe, which is bucking the retail trend and expanding its high street portfolio.
