E-Commerce Panel

  • Blue Boar Lecture Theatre Christ Church Oxford United Kingdom (map)

E-Commerce has changed significantly in the past 30 years as technologies have developed; customers have ever-more access to products and services, specific information on businesses offerings, and peer reviews. As many bricks and mortar businesses have moved towards multichannel ones in developed and now in developing economies barriers to entry in many industries have significantly fallen which has provided entrepreneurs with the ability to start businesses with less capital than at any time before. Here to discuss the adoption of e-commerce, the future of e-commerce, and how entrepreneurs can utilise e-commerce channels, The Oxford Forum, in co-operation with Oxford Entrepreneurs and the Oxford Economics Society, has invited four experienced and qualified speakers on the issue;

James Hardy (CEO and Co-Founder of Avenue 51),

Oliver Bridge (Founder of Cornerstone and named as “one to watch” by Duncan Bannatyne),

Prof. Jonathan Reynolds (Associate Professor in Retail Marketing at Said Business School) and

Prof. Nir Vulkan (Associate Professor of Business Economics at Said Business School and author of one of the leading texts on the microeconomics of e-commerce).

Following the event, a drinks reception will be held at the Christ Church Undercroft bar from 7-8pm. We are also delighted to have arranged for a dinner with the speakers, which will start at 8pm. Places are limited, so please follow the link below to purchase dinner tickets. It is an excellent opportunity to engage more directly with the speakers.
