Luxury is set for its biggest ever bounce back - according to analysts, by 2025, the global luxury market could reach €370B, an increase of €150B in 2020.

MEMBER INSIGHTS: Partnerships with Purpose with the NSPCC

15th Oct 2020

According to the conscious consumer spending index 2020, the covid-19 pandemic has led to a surge of socially responsible behaviours, showing that buying from brands with purpose is rising in importance for customers. In this session, where we launch our partnership with the NSPCC, we bring together speakers from two Walpole brands, Harrods and Jo Malone London, as well as speakers from the NSPCC, to explore the social and commercial benefits of charitable partnerships and how it makes a difference to front line services at the NSPCC.

All proceeds from any tickets purchased for this session will go to the NSPCC.
