Retailers from across the nation and abroad will gather on October 11-12, 2012 for the Texas A&M University Retailing Summit at The Ritz-Carlton in Dallas, TX. Sponsored by Credera and the Center for Retailing Studies at Texas A&M University, the Summit provides an opportunity for retailers to come together to learn, network, and leave inspired. The Summit outlines practical solutions for business success, engaging with customers and employees, understanding changing trends, marketing strategy, and financial planning. Attendees include executives ranging from Chief Executive Officers to Chief Marketing Officers to Vice Presidents of IT.
7-Eleven and Credera will co-present, Fortune 50 Innovation, How to Leverage Intrapreneurs for Retail Innovation: A 7-Eleven Case Study, on Thursday, October 11 at 3 p. m. Mike Debnar, Senior Director of Digital Guest Experience with 7-Eleven, and Matt Levy, Managing Director with Credera, will explain how unlocking the innovation DNA in an “85 year-old giant” starts by tapping into its own employee base. An intrapreneur is defined as a person within a corporation who is given the freedom and resources to initiate projects, business ventures, etc. Debnar and Levy will share how 7-Eleven has provided intrapreneurs the right structure, motivation, and bold leadership to bring meaningful innovation to market.
