Amazon Luncheon – Melbourne – 8th December –


The Institute had flown our speaker from London for Sydney event and were unable to present in Melbourne. But we NOW can do so – Gregory will fly in from overseas to speak.

Amazon is gearing up its launch in 2018 with one of the world biggest retailers promising cheaper prices, faster delivery times and access to a greater range of products, including groceries.  Amazon has disrupted a number of markets and the outcome will be retailer profitability and sales shift to Australia – with warehousing expanding the kinds of products can deliver while at the same time slashing delivery times. The company has already hiring more than scores of people in Sydney for roles including logistics, IT and security aspects. The intriguing aspect will be the coming version of Amazon Prime wherein customers will pay an annual fee of $100 each year – with already 60 million customers already signed on. It is also expected that Amazon Now will commence the promise of groceries – likely delivered in under an hour. Amazon will bring the game-changer to Australia!

With the launch of Amazon in Australia imminent are you prepared?  Do you know what you need to do and how to do it? If not it’s probably best to learn from an Australian who used to work for Amazon. Greg Cowan is an ex pat who has been living in the UK for the past five and a half years. Currently a Commercial Director he was previously Amazon Head of buying for the Sports and Outdoor categories in the UK.

Greg will be our guest presenting on his experience

  • Working with Amazon, how their culture is different from anything you will have experienced
  • How you need to engage them and how you can win with them. What type of people, what skills , how to maximise your investment and how to avoid the pitfalls
  • How their mentality is so different and so simple (if you understand  it) vs any other retailer Amazon will be successful in the Australia – the question is whether you will maximise the most of the opportunity.
