Former CEO of Dreams, Mike Logue, has been confirmed as the latest headline speaker at Retail Technology Show, the new flagship event for retail that brings together Europe’s most forward-thinking retailers and leading tech innovators.
Famed for turning around the fortunes of Dreams during his eight year tenure at the helm of the specialist beds retailer, Logue departed Dreams at the end of 2021, having transformed the business culminating in its £340 million sale to beddings product giant Tempur Sealy.
Logue takes to the Retail Technology Show on Day 1 (26 April) to deliver an inspirational keynote, which will cover how an omnichannel retailer can reverse its fortunes and move from administration to producing a £500m+ return for the business’ shareholders. The session will feature reflective insight, lessons and takeaways from his time at Dreams, as well as strategies for growth and the role of digital and innovation, at every level in the retail organisation, in achieving new KPIs and carving out performance in the new retail landscape.
Logue is just one of the latest retail leaders and trailblazing entrepreneurs confirmed as part of Retail Technology Show’s conference programme. He joins Dragon’s Den investor Steven Bartlett, New Look chairman and ex-Sainsbury’s CEO Mike Coupe, Jeremy Schwartz, the former-CEO of The Body Shop and Pandora, and Ella Mills, Founder of plant-based food and wellness brands, Deliciously Ella.
Matt Bradley, Event Director for the Retail Technology Show, commented:
“Mike is one of the titans of transformation in retail, and has always placed great emphasis on the value of innovation and technology in driving retail success, a vision which is central to the founding principle of the Retail Technology Show. We’re thrilled to have Mike at the show and have no doubt about the depth of insight his session will deliver to our retail visitors.”
