A 25-year veteran enterprise technology expert, Miya Knights applies her deep understanding of technology gained through her journalism career to both her role as a consultant and as director at Retail Technology Magazine, which she helped shape over the past 17 years. Miya was educated at Oxford University, earning a master’s degree in English, and has enjoyed a hugely varied career in leading roles such as a global technology research director at Planet Retail and a senior research analyst at IDC.
She has also co-authored two books on business technology: ‘Amazon: How the World's Most Relentless Retailer will Continue to Revolutionize Commerce’ and ‘Omnichannel Retail: How to Build Winning Stores in the Digital World’, the latter of which was shortlisted for the 2020 Business Book of the Year Award in the Sales & Marketing category.
Her role as a journalist has seen her write for many of the leading technology publishers in the UK such as ITPro, TechWeekEurope, CIO UK, Computer Weekly, and also a number of national newspapers including The Times, Independent, and Financial Times.
