Consumers now employ an arsenal of smartphones, mobile and social applications and tablets, while retailers utilize converging sales channels and touch points to influence and enhance the customer experience.

As a result, retail executives should rethink their approach to business challenges, from hiring and training the next generation of talent, to engaging the always-connected consumer, and finding innovative ways to make inventory and merchandise accessible from anywhere.

Belk Jr. , chairman and CEO, Belk, Inc. and Susan Jurevics , senior vice president, Global Retail CRM and Brand Marketing at Sony Corporation of America, will provide a glimpse into their organizations' digital and cross-channel strategies and share their vision for the future of retail.
