Our clients CommerceHub, Elavon and Salesforce were seeking one-to-one conversations with retail’s c-suite to benefit from face time with the industry’s most influential bosses. Alongside networking and making valuable connections, they also wanted to be privy to Chatham House rule conversations where retail leaders openly shared the challenges and opportunities facing their businesses.


Retail Week’s annual winter Leaders’ Dinner is the most prestigious c-suite networking event in the retail calendar. Regularly attended by some of the most influential leaders across the industry, the event was organised in partnership with CommerceHub, Elavon and Salesforce in 2023 to enable them to build relationships with senior leaders.

Hosted at the Emin Room in Mayfair on Thursday, 9 November, the dinner saw more than 30 retail leaders – including bosses from Sainsbury’s, Sephora, B&Q and The Very Group – come together over champagne and a three-course meal for invaluable networking and discussion.

Sir Ian Livingstone CBE, co-founder of The Games Workshop, venture capital fund Hiro Capital and educational charity BGI, was our special guest speaker for the evening and delivered a keynote on how to be a leader that cultivates new ideas and thinking.

The event generated brilliant feedback from guests. Testimonials included:

“Many thanks for the invitation to what was such an interesting evening. Well done for organising this event and for arranging Sir Ian Livingstone.” – Sainsbury’s leader

“Thank you so much for a great evening. Really enjoyed listening to Ian and the opportunity to network.” – Next Beauty leader
