It will be hosted by Chris Maguire, executive editor of BusinessCloud and TechBlast.

How to turn an eCommerce business into a global titan

Gedman and Duckworth will be sharing their own remarkable eCommerce journey, from propelling the expansion of THG as a global leader to creating industry giants such as MyProtein and LookFantastic.

They founded eComplete in 2020 with a mission to provide eCommerce brands with the foundations to scale that are typically reserved for eCommerce giants.

They’ll explain how they intend to disrupt eCommerce growth not only for their partners but also for their investment portfolio.

In 2021, eComplete bought a sizeable stake in eCommerce beauty business CurrentBody.

Duckworth is also the co-founder of Naturecan, a leading CBD brand, and will discuss how Naturecan has embraced internationalisation and now operates in 50 countries.
