Retail Global

Retail Global

Retail Global (formerly the PeSA Internet Conference) was created out of a passion for the industry and the people who lead it.

Founder Phil Leahy successfully launched and built one of the largest eBay businesses retailing CDs & DVDs – achieving Australia’s #1 eBay seller for the highest volume of sales in all seller categories for a number of years. He then decided to launch a conference to help others who were tackling marketplaces and cross-border.
