Future Leaders by Be Inspired

Informed. Connected. Inclusive

With a battle for talent at all levels that continues unabated, the retail sector needs more support in positioning itself as a vibrant, dynamic and diverse workplace, and more ways to inspire the next generation of leaders - whoever they are, whatever their background.

Enter Future Leaders by Be Inspired.

Through a series of events across the calendar year with a focus on career development, retail knowledge and networking, the goal is to ensure the retail workforce is informed, connected and inclusive.
