Preparations for the dynamic Arena Face2Face Interview & Lunch 2013 are in full swing. On Monday 30 September Booker’s Chief Executive, Charles Wilson, will be the latest industry leader to join the Face2Face roll of honour.
Back in 2008, as the UK entered recession, Charles Wilson took to the Arena stage to address industry colleagues. Under the headline ‘Booker’s Turnaround Champion’, he gave a very honest, humorous and passionate account of how, in just three years, he had successfully turned around the fortunes of the wholesale giant. By cutting debts, increasing sales and restoring profits, Booker recovered.
Fast forward five years through the most challenging of economic climates, and Charles is preparing to update the industry through a candid dialogue with ITN’s Alastair Stewart.
Having transformed Booker from a failing business to a strong and increasingly profitable wholesaler in the first three years of his leadership, the subsequent five years packed just as big a punch.
Book your place to meet with fellow industry professionals, and to find out what Charles and Booker have been up to and what’s next on the agenda.
