March 2021 Speaker Series General Meeting : Helen Brocklebank, CEO of Walpole

4 March, 2021 @ 10:45 am - 12:00 pm


British brands have for centuries symbolised luxury. What aspiring millionaire doesn’t, on attaining wealth, immediately buy a Rolls Royce or Bentley and drive to Claridges for a spot of Fortnum’s blend tea? No doubt she is sporting a Johnston of Elgins cashmere and Alexander McQueen skirt underneath a Burberry coat, the suitable attire for shopping later at Harrods. So what does it take to promote, protect and develop these high end businesses worth billions to the UK economy? We have invited Helen Brocklebank, CEO of Walpole – the industry association for the British Luxury sector – to explain how its 270 member brands, including those named above, are fostered while also cultivating the opulent brands of the future. Dedicated to developing a pipeline for sector growth, Brocklebank oversees the annual Walpole Brands of Tomorrow sponsoring aspiring brands to attain the heights of industry success. We shall also learn how Walpole is committed to British products becoming the benchmark for sustainability while simultaneously ensuring the legislative and regulatory framework of European governments protect the business of luxury.

KCWC is thrilled to present an inspiring female industry leader this time doing her part to ensure the UK is the best place in the world to grow luxury brands. They are, according to our speaker, “the best ambassadors Britain could have”.
