- Michael Clarke, head of content and service delivery at DeHavilland, who will discuss the political implications of Brexit
- Petah Marian, senior editor of retail intelligence at WGSN, who will be talking about how the decision affects smaller retailers, given prices from suppliers are already increasing, and how to manage the buying process and business risk going forward
