Independent beauty, personal care and wellness brands have flourished during the past decade. The golden age of ecommerce allowed independent founder-led labels to share unique products and experiences directly to their audiences, and forge connected communities on and offline. Today many are still making their mark and growing from DTC into the physical retail space, but competition is stiff and scaling is more complex than ever. Consumers are savvy, spoilt for choice between dupes and celebrity labels, and reaching them is becoming more expensive every year. So where is the battle for scale fought? What's key to a successful retail pitch? And how do you prioritise as a  multi-tasking founder with limited funds and a small or non existent team? Effie Asafu-Adjaye is the founder of Beautiful Sparks and has worked with some of the biggest names globally in beauty. She’ll reveal some of the strategies from her work with LMVH, Bobbie Brown, Jurlique and more, sharing insider tips and her counsel to help independents tap into their superpowers and win.

The consumer marketing landscape is more difficult to navigate than ever before with an unprecedented degree of entertainment, education and brand transparency all factors in our purchasing decisions. There’s a lot to navigate in creating content that's amusing, different, entertaining, non virtue signalling, trending, and the list goes on. The expectations of Gen Z and young-age millennials have changed the way brands must engage their communities and sell products, with more than half of those under 30 prioritising TikTok over Google for search. Traditionally a Gen Z platform, TikTok is now impacting the way we need to sell to Millenials, Gen X and Baby Boomers. We’re now all becoming digital natives and the expectations of older demographics are evolving rapidly with those 35 plus now the fastest growing demographic on TikTok. Thomas Moult is Co-Founder and Head of Growth at Buttr Marketing where he’s been responsible for the growth of brands like Hunter, Mukti, and Ecostore.
