The highly pertinent topic of digital disruption on the building materials market is set to feature on the agenda of the 2018 NMBS All-Industry Conference.
The subject will be covered by Neil Munz-Jones, who has recently been confirmed as a further speaker at the eagerly anticipated and sold-out event.
A highly experienced consultant, facilitator and speaker, Munz-Jones has previously held director level positions at Kingfisher, B&Q and Caradon (now part of Honeywell).
In 2005, he set up his own specialist consultancy, mdj2, which advises organisations especially in the building and home improvement sector, on a wide range of topics. Munz-Jones has particular expertise in strategy, programme and change management.
Munz-Jones can also list being a published author amongst his achievements. Through his book, ‘The Reluctant Networker’ and numerous talks delivered to audiences across Europe, he has helped to make networking easier and less intimidating for those who know they should partake in this important business activity but rather they didn’t have to.
The topic of digital disruption on the building materials market is one that should resonate with most delegates and is an area in which Munz-Jones is especially well versed.
He will be supporting his points with information based on real world research and investigative work conducted by mdj2.
His insights and advice will cover topics such as Amazon, omnichannel trading, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, RPA (robotic process automation) and much more.
Munz-Jones will also stage out breakout sessions for smaller groups of delegates looking for guidance or support with specific issues.
Commenting, Sam Hunt, events manager at NMBS, said: “Neil’s appearance at the 2018 All-Industry strengthens an already impressive line-up of speakers from a wide variety of fields.
“His focus on the latest developments in the digital space and on the challenges and opportunities these present to the building sector will prove especially valuable.
“There’s no question that the emergence of new technologies is changing customer behaviour and the way many of us work. Neil will be hoping to equip delegates with the knowledge and foresight they need to prosper in this evolving business landscape.”
