Why did we create the Masterclass Series?

In the ever-evolving landscape of our industry, success hinges on our leaders' skills and ability.

To drive our organisations forward, we must develop leaders with multifaceted skill sets, adept at tackling complex problems, fostering cross-functional collaboration, and setting ambitious goals.

The foundation of our approach is curiosity, cultivating an atmosphere of open-mindedness, which helps us address new challenges head-on.

This is why we created the 'Masterclass Series', which focus on developing leaders on niche but highly impactful topics.

The masterclass includes a drop-in clinic where you can meet our experts and discuss your ideas in a confidential, open-minded, one-to-one setting to drive change where it's needed - from the top down.

This interactive workshop will help you: Through guest speakers from other retailers, where you can learn from those who have excelled within this area, and group activities:


  • Creating and embedding an inclusive culture within your organisation so that you can maximise the benefits of having a diverse workforce
  • Be aware of change risks and navigate them effectively: Get it right the first time

  • Sense-check your thinking in a safe, confidential environment with experts


Who's it For?

This Masterclass is aimed at senior and executive leaders within retail who aren't leading internally on D&I but do have an internal responsibility for creating and embedding a diverse and inclusive culture within their teams and are eager to stay current with the latest thinking.
This is the most effective solution for you if you are experiencing the following:

  • Conflicting interests or perspectives within the organisation, making it difficult to identify key D&I priorities. 
  •  Inconsistent approaches to D&I across the business leading to disengagement
  • A lack of ownership and understanding on the importance of creating an inclusive culture, leading to examples of exclusion
  • Setting unrealistic or vague goals that are not intentional resulting in them being difficult to measure or accomplish.
  • Fear of failure or backlash for saying the "wrong thing" when trying to do the "right thing".
  • Difficulty discerning between outdated practices and what are the must haves that will embed inclusivity and diversity.

Get the best strategy in place for your company and the planet.
