Fiona Lambert Announces as Keynote for Brands & Retail Summer Conference
Brands & Retail Conference announces that Fiona Lambert, one of the UK’s leading businesswomen with senior roles at Next, Asda, Dunelm and River Island and most recently as Managing Director of jaeger at M&S, will be the keynote speaker for Summer 23 conference in Birmingham on the 4th and 5th July.
Fiona worked alongside George’s founder ‘George Davies’ to set up and launch George as the first fashion supermarket brand in 1990 and has built a hugely successful career in the fashion industry over the last 30 years, running the design, buying, sourcing and quality of clothes that have been worn by many in the nation.
The keynote will take place at the end of Day 1 (4th July) which will lead into the new Gala Dinner which takes place at the Grand Hotel that evening from 6pm.
“I think licensing and brand collaborations are going to be key drivers of innovation and momentum for the industry and am really looking forward to being involved in Brands Retail Summer conference,” comments Fiona Lambert
“Fiona has been supporting our industry for many years and I am delighted someone of her experience of running major retailers has agreed to come and speak at our new summer conference in Birmingham,” says Ryan Ryan Beaird – CEO Brands Retail Conferences.
“I am also grateful that Ruth Golightly of Blues Clothing will be interviewing Fiona and I am sure we will hear some great anecdotes of their time working together at George @ ASDA.
“We have now reduced the amount of brand presentations over the two days to bring in more fantastic educational panels like these which should appeal to our more junior workforce.
“We have a theatre capacity of 250 so if you are a licensee or retailer and you have junior staff you should encourage them to come and watch the screenings and attend the gala dinner, we are sure they will be inspired by these senior executive panels.
“As we have reduced the number of available screening slots for brands we are now bringing in a deadline of the 31st May for brands to secure their presentation times. So if you want to present to our VIP audience please get in touch soon.”
Tickets and registration for the conference and gala dinner are now on sale.
