David Roth, The Store – WPP: New retailing realities

Themes: Guest speakers, Marketing and strategy

David RothSome are rich some are poor, some save others spend, but as one part of the global world grows and another shrinks back the traditional power structures between the developed and the developing world are undergoing change and reconfiguration.
