Workshops and events

Our online and in-person events lie at the heart of the Future Leaders by Be Inspired programme. An opportunity to share knowledge and network with others across the sector, these sessions range from practical workshops on career development, summits and conferences focused on the retail sector and smaller, more intimate, steering groups and forums.

You can find the full list of what is coming up below with details on how to register. Certain sessions will also be available to watch on demand (see the bottom of the page for past workshops you may have missed).

Please note: our workshops and events are exclusively for retail partners or ambassadors and the audience for each one is clearly indicated.
