Walpole launches its 2019 Brands of Tomorrow
Last night, Walpole, the industry body for the British luxury sector unveiled the 2019 selections for its Brands of Tomorrow programme at Coutts.
Brands of Tomorrow, in association with Mishcon de Reya and Coutts, is a unique mentoring programme which takes up to 12 carefully selected fledgling brands through a year-long programme of workshops and mentoring to help develop their business skills and set them on a path to growth.
