Jason Greenwood - NZ Project
Jason Greenwood,
eCommerce Manager, 

Jason is eCommerce Manager for HealthPost, based in Auckland, New Zealand. HealthPost are New Zealand’s largest online retailer of natural health products – shipping to NZ and the world for almost 30 years. Jason has worked in the digital space for over 15 years, both agency and merchant side. Jason also creates a wide variety of industry related content to help organisations up their digital and eCommerce game.

Jason's Presentation: Using Structured Data to Create a Spectacular Customer Experience

We sought to collect structured data on over 70 product attributes (eg: vegan, vegetarian, gluten free etc) related to our catalogue of over 5000 products (from over 200 suppliers) we sell on our eCommerce websites.
The purpose of this was to ensure a consistent 'interpretation' of these attributes (we defined them), as well as the ability to surface these on the site in various ways (eg: faceted navigation, product compare, product pages etc) so that customers would be able to better search, find and purchase products that are right for them.
We have been in the data collection and sanitation phase for over 12 months now and will begin to surface the outputs of this work on our new re-platform/site launch in January 2019.
No other business in our vertical in APAC has attempted such an ambitious project related to product attributes and structured data.

Jody's Presentation: The story of the impossible singing Canary
Some people said it couldn’t be done but we’ve championed a new way of working @ ANZ using data to deliver customer value faster in our customers’ most popular digital channel by:
• Collaborating and aligning capabilities and skills across Data, Digital and Technology to shorten our release, learning and feedback cycles.
• Empowering our teams with tools, timely relevant data and feedback capability to test, learn and iterate.
• Cultivating an agile, experimental and data-driven culture change – This was a BIG one!
