Hearing directly from senior retail leaders is always the best way to understand their thinking and plans for their businesses.  But, it is often a challenge to get direct access to them.

This fall, Retail Council of Canada (RCC) is bringing back the highly popular, often sold-out, In Conversation with Retail Leaders in Canada series to help retail partners (and for one event only, other retailers), learn, from senior executives themselves, about their perspectives, company business strategies, and specific plans for the future.  

On September 22, 2022, Clint Mahlman, COO, London Drugs, convenes for an information-packed, in-person conversation with RCC’s President and CEO Diane J. Brisebois. (This is the only event in this series that is open not just to the vendor and supplier community, but also to retailers.)

In this session, Mr. Mahlman will speak to the state of vendor and retailer relationships in Canada post-pandemic, and the status of supply chain planning. Vendors and retailers require strong partnerships for mutual success and Clint will discuss the value of being “our vendor’s best retailer” in the London Drug’s business strategy. He will also discuss: the long-term outlook on supporting local governments in the development and production of “made in Canada” vaccinations and pharmaceuticals, how retailers can work to reduce criminal and violent behaviour in-store, the intersection of digital and privacy in retail, and the variety of impacts on sales including supply chain challenges, inflation and more.

Mr. Mahlman brings over 36 years of retail experience and success to London Drugs and has made a lasting impact on many aspects of the business.  From part-time stock person to President, Clint has served in a wide range of store and head office roles, enabling him to develop a 360-degree perspective of the business. He is known for his passion for understanding how customer and employee behaviour drives merchandising and operations.

The event will take place at the Toronto Congress Centre. Also, senior London Drugs team members will be present to ensure this is an unparalleled opportunity for business networking and question answering.  

Tickets: RCC Member $199.00 | Non-Member $349.00. Individual tickets are available, and a 10% discount applies when you register five or more team members.
