The title alone here is adapted inspiration from an Audrey Hepburn quote. She is a timeless role model and epitome of class and luxury. She was also wise enough to live the philosophy ‘you’ve got to look at yourself objectively. Analyse yourself like an instrument’

From these these reflections you can keep developing to remain, like Miss Hepburn herself, both classic and timeless.

In the same vein, this golden age inspired business session will focus on classic themes for business success yet adapted for contemporary, creative relevance in luxury markets.

The key ingredients for success in the experience economy:

A model to update relevance and differentiation in a luxury market.

How to ensure everyone can fill, appropriately to the brim, the 4 primary facets of value.

With differentiation comes creativity and innovation: 3 tips for igniting the creative talent in your top end business.

The 3 commandments for classy, and classic, collaboration.
