February 06, 2016

Leading journalist and senior business commentator, Andrew Robertson, is set to join Guy Russo, CEO of Kmart and Brian Walker, CEO & Founder of Retail Doctor Group at Retail Doctor Group’s ‘Fit For Business’ Breakfast this March.

Andrew Robertson has been a journalist for more than 30 years, both in Australia and overseas, including 10 years at Sky News in both London and Sydney. He joined the ABC in 2003 and is the chief reporter of The Business, and presenter of The Finance Quarter.

As well as opening the breakfast conference alongside Brian Walker, Andrew Robertson is set to conclude the event by hosting an exclusive Q&A session with keynote speaker, Guy Russo, CEO of Kmart.

“I am really looking forward to the Retail Doctor’s ‘Fit for Business’ breakfast. Kmart is one of the great success stories of modern Australian retailing and it will be really fascinating to hear the inside story from the man behind that success” says Andrew Robertson.

From the brink of bankruptcy to a billion dollar business; the topic of the day will be ‘transformative retail’ with Guy Russo, leading the way with his unique story on how he transformed Kmart into one of the most profitable listed department store chains in Australia.

Described by The Australian Retailers Association as ‘inspiring’ and ‘insightful’, the Retail Doctor Group ‘Fit for Business’ Breakfast series has successfully run for over six years.  A well-respected and high profile event in the retail calendar, the Retail Doctor Group ‘Fit for Business’ Breakfasts have previously hosted high profile guest speakers such as Bernie Brookes (former CEO) of Myer, Peter Birtles of Super Retail Group and Stuart Machin of Target.

Retail Doctor Group, with event partner CitiXsys, will host the ‘Fit For Business’ Breakfast with Guy Russo in Melbourne on 3rd March 2016 from 7.30am at Cargo Hall, South Wharf, followed by the Sydney breakfast on 17th March 2016 at 7.30am at Dockside, Darling Harbour.
