Earlier today, we successfully concluded our fifth-annual Forum. For those who could not attend, we wanted to post highlights from the two-day event as soon as possible. Enjoy.

In his interview with Nordstrom Direct President Jamie Nordstrom, L2 Founder Scott Galloway asked which social platform he believed was most valuable to retailers. Reluctant to answer at first, Nordstrom finally relented and chose Twitter.
Galloway and a special guest sit for a reading of Ben Light’s interactive children’s tale, “The Bellybutton Book.”
Acknowledging the public’s dislike of Millennials, generational expert Sharalyn Hartwell promised in her talk that their successors, The Plurals, would be raised differently and, in general, would act more selflessly. For more on Sharalyn’s insights and work, click here.
In one of the most valuable talks of the day, Galloway talked one-on-one with Sephora CMO and Chief Digital Officer Julie Bornstein. Counter to Nordstrom’s choice of Twitter, Bornstein says she favors Pinterest, because it’s “extremely shopping-oriented.” For more on Bornstein, click here.
One of the most unconventional sessions of the day belonged to stream-of-consciousness artist Shantell Martin, whose drawing below included birds and boats, as well as names from audience members.
