Walmart COO Gisel Ruiz and president of health and wellness John Agwunobi are listed as speakers at events taking place within the next 30 days in Northwest Arkansas.
Agwunobi is first up at a gathering of the Bentonville/Bella Vista Chamber of Commerce scheduled for January 21 focused on the organization’s Walstreet members who tend to be suppliers to the retailer or service provider companies. Now entering his seventh year with Walmart, Agwunobi’s remarks come as the retailer looks to play an expanded role in a health care marketplace being roiled by the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
Several weeks later on February 13, Walmart COO Gisel Ruiz is likely to offer a different perspective when she participates in a speaker series called The Summit held at Cross Church. The weekly luncheon series began in 2001 and Walmart executives have been regular participants over the year, with many recounting their life’s journey and the role faith has played.
