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.

Hot off the heels of ShopTalk Las Vegas, we took a trip to Barcelona to attend and speak at the World Retail Congress. With Matt, our Co-founder & Exec Chair speaking on the future of the industry and the current state of investment market in a private top 30 global CEO forum and Archie, our Innovation Director speaking on Circularity and Retail's Journey to Net Zero. In the spirit of democratising access to the event, we’re lifting the lid on our top takeaways.
