The culture and people are the best thing about True. I always think about how lucky I am to have been able to start my career at True with people who genuinely care about my personal and professional growth.
Having previously worked with True when at the John Lewis Partnership, I recognised the potential of the unique model that True operates and saw a team with huge ambition to grow something really special.
I wanted to join True because it’s a different way of approaching the industry we’re in, and this coupled with the retail and consumer angle gave me real reason to be excited.
I wanted to be a part of True because we’re building something in a company that shared similar ideals to myself. I was looking to find a common goal and I instantly knew from meeting Matt and Paul that I liked them, wanted to work with them and be on the True journey.
We work with brands that inspire us, shape consumers’ lives and create positive change the world over.
Every year we host an Innovation Showcase. It gives us the chance to show the breadth and scale of opportunities available to our portfolio brands and leading global partners. We’re seeing rapid growth in the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) space and we have plenty of scaleups in our network to shout about, so we themed this year’s Showcase accordingly.
Grosvenor has launched an innovation challenge seeking to discover new technologies and partners that are putting customer experience at the heart of bricks and mortar retail.
Overall, there has been a significant and sustained increase in awareness of the ESG (Environmental Social and Governance) agenda from corporates and consumers alike over the last 12-24 months, and it’s a theme that’s as topical today as it ever has been. It’s at the forefront of our minds both from an investment and innovation perspective, and is one of the hottest technology investment themes for 2022
