We are delighted to have Emil Stickland, Director of Thrive Digital to teach and facilitate Thrive’s highly interactive seminar on developing and improving your International Ecommerce.
There has never been a better time to invest in your international ecommerce business; the international retail industry is growing 4x faster than domestic, and is expected to be worth £28 billion to the UK by 2020.
Thrive Digital have developed a model called The Mix. The Mix is a series of steps to create the perfect product offering, marketing strategy and website for success in international ecommerce.
Emil will be taking Thrive delegates through a number of models and tools to help inform development of an effective strategy for growth in international ecommerce.
Emil Stickland is an expert in export led ecommerce. Emil was the head of digital marketing for the Rubik’s cube. He was responsible for taking a largely US centric website, with very little ecommerce focus, and turning it into an international ecommerce success. While at the helm, Rubiks.com doubled profits every year. Emil also gained experience working with some of the largest online and offline companies in the world, including Google, Amazon and Hasbro on various projects including a Google Doodle. During his 3-year journey, Emil developed his philosophy to expanding websites internationally, this later became “The Mix” and basis for Thrive Digital.
Ecommerce as opposed to web design in general, requires a uniquely analytical and financial viewpoint . Emil is a member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and studies Finance at Durham University, giving him a window in to both the financial world and that of marketing. This strongly influences his attitude towards ecommerce development, as the end goal of The Mix is always a maximisation of client profit.
