The world of retail is constantly changing, and savvy business people learn to evolve with it. The pandemic introduced a whole new set of rules into an already dynamic landscape. When change and chaos are the new normal, how can retailers continue to anticipate the needs of the consumer?

This week on Can Do, we talk with Eric Sprunk, former chief operating officer at Nike. Sprunk is a born-and-raised Montanan who is also a venture capitalist, a sought-after senior advisor and a philanthropist. He’s a board member with General Mills and Bombardier, as well as with a new retail AI start-up called Olvin.

Sprunk will tell us about what it was like to experience the explosive growth of Nike firsthand and how that knowledge influences his current projects.

What is the difference between a business’s operations and its governance? How did growing up in Montana help train Sprunk for his role in global business? And what is the single most important quality in a leader? Listen now in Can Do’s inaugural Season Five episode.

Arnie Sherman's experiences as an entrepreneur, trade negotiator, strategic advisor, college professor and as the host of podcast, radio and television programs give him a singular perspective on life and the business world.
