Retail Council of Canada is hosting its fourth online webinar in a series called In Conversation with Retail Leaders in Canada. Lululemon CEO Calvin McDonald will speak with Retail Council of Canada president Diane J. Brisebois at 12:00 pm Eastern/9:00 am Pacific on Tuesday, June 30, as part of the webinar series featuring one-on-one conversations with Canada’s top retail leaders.

Tickets for the webinar featuring Mr. McDonald can be purchased here.

Calvin McDonald will explore lessons learned including how lululemon adjusted its business model while maintaining customer trust throughout the pandemic, as well as how the retailer is looking to future shake-ups to the industry as a whole. While lululemon’s online sales skyrocketed this quarter, it was not enough to offset the decline of in-store sales. However, as many people are exercising from home right now, McDonald says lululemon is well-positioned to take advantage of the growing popularity in athletic apparel.
