As well as opening the breakfast conference alongside Brian Walker, Andrew Robertson is set to conclude the event by hosting an exclusive Q&A session with keynote speaker, Guy Russo, CEO of Kmart.

“I am really looking forward to the Retail Doctor’s ‘Fit for Business’ breakfast. Kmart is one of the great success stories of modern Australian retailing and it will be really fascinating to hear the inside story from the man behind that success” says Andrew Robertson.

From the brink of bankruptcy to a billion dollar business; the topic of the day will be ‘transformative retail’ with Guy Russo, leading the way with his unique story on how he transformed Kmart into one of the most profitable listed department store chains in Australia.
