About Us

It all starts with a conversation. Our principals at BWG Strategy leverage decades of combined experience to bring together the right experts for roundtable discussions. While delving into retail, eCommerce, media, technology, finance, payments, our forums cultivate real-time insights and transform them into effective key takeaways.
