Keynote speakers announced

We are delighted to announce our two keynote speakers. Anne Pitcher, Managing Director of the Selfridges Group and Dr Danny Sriskandarajah, CEO of Oxfam GB will both be sharing their expertise and knowledge with our delegates in Nottingham.

Robin Osterley, our Chief Executive, said:

“We’re both delighted and excited to have two such prestigious and high-quality speakers for our first face-to-face event since the pandemic started – a measure of how crucial charity retail is in the ecology of UK society. Danny, Chief Executive of the world’s first charity retailer, will provide a fascinating perspective on how to build retail into the fabric of one of the world’s most significant charities. And Anne, Managing Director of one of the world’s oldest commercial retailers, will give her views on what charity retail looks like from her side of the fence as it were. We really could not have had a finer line-up to restart our conference programme – do come and hear what they have to say”
