The Millennium Alliance has been known to gather the most influential executives in marketing and retail at their invite-only assemblies, with attendees including Fernando Machado of Burger King, Jim Stengel formerly of P&G and Stefanie Strack of Voice in Sport. In light of COVID-19, they’ve replicated this experience in their Virtual Assembly for Digital Marketing & Retail, featuring Keynote Speaker, Sharen Jester Turney, Former CEO of Victoria’s Secret. 

Retail legend & upcoming Keynote Speaker, Sharen Jester Turney, tells The Millennium Alliance, “I am excited to be a part of your Transformational Retail Assembly.  Curiosity has served me well, and I can’t wait to hear what is on the minds of the participants. I hope that by sharing some of my thoughts and experiences around leadership in this new era, the importance of resilience, and that humanity always matters, our upcoming leaders can bring their best selves to positively impact our global community.”

In the midst of so much disruption and economic uncertainty, The Millennium Alliance recognizes that executive education and digital transformation are more crucial than ever before for business success. Their assemblies are sought-out to provide today’s C-Suite the tools and insight they need to digitally transform their organizations in the midst of COVID-19. The Virtual Assembly for Marketers & Retailers takes place on August 25-26, and includes interactive workshops, panels and roundtables with leading executives and academic thought leaders in the space.

During turbulent times, nothing remains the same.  We must confront reality.  Say what needs to be said.  Encourage pushback to thoughts and opinions to try to get it right.  Leading through change equals courage and compassion. Lift each other up.  Help wherever you can.  Be good people to each other.
