The post-corona customer presented by Bernard Salt AM

As the world commences to re-open as we transition out of crisis and into recovery there’s no doubt that life, as we know it, has changed. This is equally true for the consumer. The way we purchase items and the things we buy and the mindset in which we buy them have all been altered forever. This means the way businesses present their products and communicate with their customers is also evolving.

The changes will look different for every business, and they will continue to transform long with the pandemic situation.

We are delighted to extend you a complimentary invitation to join us to hear first hand how Coraggio can expand and future proof your business, followed by an upfront and personal keynote speaker session with one of Australia’s leading social commentators and business analysts, Bernard Salt AM.

Opened by Coraggio’s CEO, Richard Skarzynski, who will discuss how being part of a Coraggio peer to peer Advisory Board provides a sustainable solution to navigate your business effectively throughout 2021 and beyond.

Followed by Bernard Salt AM who will provide insights into:

– How the pandemic changed consumer spending

– What post COVID customers want now

– How to successfully adapt your business to changing consumers expectations.
