Walpole’s Brands of Tomorrow programme, now in its seventh year, has had the honour of coaching some of today’s most exciting up and coming British luxury brands, including Astley Clarke, Shaun Leane, Miller Harris, Bremont Watch Company, Rococo Chocolates, Charlotte Olympia, Wolf & Badger and Mr Hare. These brands, through educational workshops and one-to-one mentorship meetings with some of the most experienced luxury leaders and entrepreneurs, have been able to take their brands further and fulfil their potential.
