Pentagon have announced the keynote speaker at Retail Without Borders 2018 will be former Vice-President of International Marketing at Alibaba Group, Porter Erisman.

Porter joined Alibaba in 2000, just as the company moved out of founder Jack Ma’s apartment. After leaving Alibaba, Porter wrote a book about his experience, Alibaba’s World, an international-bestseller that the Wall Street Journal named one of the “Best Business Books of 2015”. Most recently, he published his follow-up book, Six Billion Shoppers: the Companies Winning the Global Ecommerce Boom.

Porter also narrated a 2013 film ‘Crocodile in the Yangtze‘ charting the early days of Alibaba’s growth. In recent years, Porter has consulted to e-commerce companies in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

At Retail Without Borders, Porter will share his insights on why future ecommerce will no longer be shaped by the Western world, but by far more interesting models coming out of Eastern powerhouses, such as India and China.

You can find out more about Porter and register to attend Retail Without Borders, by visiting the conference website . You can also connect with him on LinkedIn or Twitter by following @PorterErisman.
