Kevin E Kelley—a self-described Attention Architect and LinkedIn top commentator—is coming to Collaborate to address the needs of the human body and mind and where retail and society appear to be heading as we enter a new chapter in the reconnecting world.
Kevin Will be speaking on:
Why physical retail's human touch remains strong and desirable in the post-pandemic world
As the co-founder of the 30-year-old strategic design firm SHOOK KELLEY, Kevin has been at the center of retail on a global scale. His firm's clients have included Kroger, Kraft, Smucker, Harley Davidson, NFL teams, Whole Foods, and many other notable names.
Kevin will help us gain perspective on what the past two and a half years have given us to learn from and apply as we move forward into the future. He'll challenge the audience to consider what the app revolution's relentless obsession with ruthless efficiency and frictionless convenience has wrought on society and retail businesses. He'll help us realize how vital to human development meeting at the intersection of commerce and community is to civilization. And he'll help us see what gets lost in translation in our shift from physical to digital life and from experiential to algorithmic market models.
Kevin is an insightful, entertaining, and provocative speaker, and we think you'll enjoy hearing why his strategic design approach to brand building is key to connecting to the consumer of today and tomorrow.
