Peter Howarth’s column for Walpole on luxury leadership in troubled times

Today, SHOW CEO Peter Howarth starts his new column Grace Under Fire: luxury leadership in troubled times for Walpole, the official sector body for UK luxury. Over the coming weeks, Peter will talk to luxury’s leaders about their approach to the crisis, and share his insights into what successful leadership looks like in these extraordinary times.

In the first in the series, Peter shares his thoughts about situational awareness, learns a useful lesson from an airline pilot about dual focus and talks to Giorgio Armani about the value of prompt action and why Covid-19 could change everything for luxury.

It counts more than 250 British brands in its membership, and is recognised in both Westminster and Brussels. As the voice of British luxury, Walpole’s purpose is to promote, protect and develop a sector worth £48 billion to the UK economy, which is arguably the jewel in the crown of UK business.
