Independent Keynote | Navigating the Marketplace Landscape: Opportunities and Challenges for Pure Play Retailers

This panel discussion will explore the opportunities and challenges presented by marketplaces for fast-growing digitally led retail businesses in Australia. Panelists will discuss the benefits of selling through marketplaces such as increased visibility, access to a wider customer base, and improved conversion rates. They will also examine the challenges of maintaining control over brand identity and customer relationships, and the potential risks of over-reliance on a single marketplace. Key takeaways will include strategies for building a successful marketplace presence while maintaining a strong brand identity, and tactics for managing risk and maximizing opportunities on these platforms.

Closing Independent Keynote | Amna Karra-Hassan

Imagine starting an AFL team with no funding, no coach and no experience. It takes a strong woman who’s not afraid to break all the rules to tackle a task this insurmountable. It takes Amna Karra-Hassan.

The Founder and President of the Auburn Giants Australian Football Club, Amna has pioneered programs for women of minority communities in Western Sydney. As a woman and a Muslim, her road to greatness wasn’t an easy one. But Amna derives her strength from adversity and uses her influence to change the conversation on intersectionality, inclusion and gender parity.

An active leader in the community, she’s also worked for the Australian Federal Police and previously served on numerous government boards. Amna’s presentation style is candid and cheeky - a true inspiration with a wicked sense of humour. She pulls no punches and says it like it is and will engage you at every level, opening your eyes to what can be done when everyone says that it can.
