About this event
A high-performing deskless workforce is a magical thing ✨. It’s prepared for key events, like launches (Black Friday, anyone?) and unexpected change. It drives revenue, operational consistency, and efficiency. It shares ideas and best practices to level up the organization as a whole.
In short, a high-performing workforce is a must for every deskless organization looking to thrive in this post-pandemic world. But what are the ingredients of a high-performing deskless team? How can you get the most out of your teams, even when you’re leading hundreds of thousands of workers? You just need the right ingredients.
At this Spark Session, we’re putting on our chefs hats. First, enjoy a one-of-a-kind cooking experience with Top Chef and Food Network superstar Tanya Holland. Then, industry leaders will share their secret ingredients for star performers. Learn their telltale signs for low-performing teams (horror story alert!), and get their secret sauce for developing a high-performance workforce.
We’re thrilled to announce the industry leaders taking part in this Spark Session:
Rachel Huckle | Chief Retail Officer, Staples Canada
Previously in senior leadership at both Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaw Companies Inc., Rachel Huckle knows the retail world inside and out. At Staples Canada, she has spent the pandemic fostering empowered, agile teams ready to take on any initiative at a moment’s notice – which is how Staples was able to pivot to a focus on the home office so seamlessly.
Sarah Jordan | Chief Executive Officer, Mastermind Toys
Sarah Jordan joined Mastermind Toys as CEO – the first change in leadership since the company was co-founded in 1984 – just weeks before the pandemic shutdowns began. Recognized as a Global Influencer in Customer Experience, Sarah has spent the last two years leading a “digital reinvention” across her 69 stores by leveraging her most valuable resource: her associates.
Lindsey Goodchild | Chief Executive Officer, Nudge
Lindsey Goodchild was a consultant working on large-scale change management and customer experience programs in hospitality when she discovered a serious need for better frontline and deskless communication. That led her to develop the digital communication platform that’s driving change across deskless and frontline organizations.
