Target CEO Brian Cornell, the National Retail Federation’s 2022 “Visionary” Honoree, returns to the Big Show Main Stage for a conversation with top leaders from Target’s diverse leadership team, to discuss what it means to build a strong company culture – and why it’s more critical than ever to the success of retailers, as we navigate a volatile environment. This group of forward-thinking leaders – including Chief Growth Officer Christina Hennington, Chief Guest Experience Officer Cara Sylvester, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer Kiera Fernandez and Group Vice President for Stores Alexis Sheppert – brings decades of experience and unique perspectives, from the C-suite to the front lines, to discuss their vision for the future of retail leadership, how to recruit your own team as champions of your company culture, and how cultures can fuel future growth.
