Ragini Mittal, Agile Project Manager, E-Commerce Technology at TUMI,
commented, “TransPerfect’s Global Retail Forum provided an excellent
learning opportunity for me. I took away some key knowledge on taking
iteration as a learning curve to enhance project and process
development, as well as some incredible insights into Amazon from Scott
Galloway that will help me in my job immediately.”

In the event’s afternoon keynote, Galloway, a renowned retail expert,
provided candid and insightful commentary on a number of subjects
pertaining to the state of commerce. He touched on the scale and
strength of Amazon, industries he feels are most primed for disruption,
artificial intelligence, and the importance he feels that AI and voice
interaction will play in the future of consumerism.

Jason Liptak, Digital Globalization and International Strategy Leader at
Delta Air Lines, remarked, “As we become more mature in our global
customer approach, our partnership with TransPerfect has gone beyond
just translating words on a website—we’re challenging ‘home market’
pitfalls, connecting with other global brands at the Global Retail
Forum, and developing creative solutions to local market issues.”
