She will be presenting her session titled: ‘Taking a 255-year-old Brand and Evolving it to be a ‘Modern British Classic’.

Also launching at this year’s show is a brand new, free-to-attend Packaging Design Summit. This is being run in association with the Pentawards, the most prestigious worldwide competition exclusively devoted to packaging design in all its forms.
