C-Suite Conversation: Digital
Through experimentation and continued investments, CPG companies continue to advance their digital strategies with benefits that go beyond the bottom line. Samrat Sharma, PwC’s US and Global Marketing & Commerce Leader, will lead the conversation after outlining the “secret sauce” to realizing value and strategic benefits beyond direct financial impact alone.
C-Suite Conversation: Workforce
From the Great Resignation to “quiet quitting,” the workforce has made strong statements in the last few years about what it expects from organizations and leaders. Elizabeth Yates and Adam Gerstein, PwC Workforce Transformation partners, will lead a discussion focused on what the market is telling us, what the workforce is telling us and what organizations can do to meaningfully transform the employee experience, attract and retain great talent and help people thrive inside and outside the workplace.
C-Suite Conversation: ESG
Consumer-facing companies have been embedding aspects of environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into their businesses for several years, but as ESG is becoming adopted more broadly, the table stakes are increasing and new winners are emerging. Ron Kinghorn, PwC’s US ESG Consulting Leader & Global Client Partner – Retail and Consumer, will tee up the conversation by sharing key trends PwC sees in ESG and CPG, as well as the “winning plays” leaders are utilizing to excel in this area.

As CPG companies adjust to the new consumer in a post-pandemic world, mindsets have shifted from reacting to unpredictable challenges to proactively thinking about growth. The Growth and Transformation workshop, presented by McKinsey and Company in collaboration with Consumer Brands, will bring together senior CPG executives to share insights and leave with actionable steps they can apply for their company’s benefit.
Facilitated by leading McKinsey experts, this highly interactive and immersive workshop will explore how CPG industry leaders are thinking about and prioritizing growth amid today’s challenges. Learn how CPGs can achieve breakout expansion by growing their core, expanding into adjacencies and disrupting their value chain.
