Small talks, big conversations: How to incubate future talent

Small Talks Big Conversations Michelle Li Talent Talk AW22

In this talk we will speak about how crucial it is to create frameworks that effectively support the next generation of talent as well as how to establish future brand protection plans.

Our talk series make up a vital element of the official schedule each season, representing an opportunity to dig deeper into wider issues facing fashion. For SS23, we have invited industry leaders and creatives to discuss a wide range of topics and issues within the fashion industry, from sustainability, diversity, to the importance of supporting emerging talent.

In this conversation the panel will discuss how organisations can effectively incubate future talent, what have been the biggest obstacles and potential opportunities emerging brands face today, what support systems need to be implemented and who do you feel need to implement them, as well as what can the past teach us that we can take into the future in effectively incubating emerging talent.
