What does it mean to you to be named a Walpole 2020 Power List winner?

I’m delighted to be recognised by Walpole for this accolade, particularly given how exciting a time it is to be part of a company driving the digital agenda, alongside brands so rich in heritage and quality.

Festival of Luxury Marketing

Filmed during Walpole’s Festival of Luxury Marketing in September 2020, Day 3 of the Festival set out the new Digital Marketing playbook and the latest innovations in virtual luxury, with lessons from the experts in online retail and marketing; events and experiences; personalisation and clienteling 2.0.

In just three months luxury brands made a 10-year leap in terms of their digital businesses. As stores reopen and consumer confidence builds how can brands now capitalise on the gains made over the last few months to re-imagine the customer experience? This was a question pondered by Farfetch’s Alex Currie, Cate Moore from William Grant & Son, Facebook’s Stefano Pardi and Janine Quatrevingt from Thom Browne.
