Through our shared values, our sponsorship relationships
are mutually beneficial.
Barclays was the first UK bank to introduce an industry sector specialist team and we have been supporting the retail and wholesale sector since 1999. This depth of industry experience gives us the insight to develop innovative products and services, and to provide specialist support to a wide range of retail businesses.
In 2015, Barclays established a strong partnership with Women in Retail connecting business women across the retail sector and supporting their Emerging Talent initiative.
“Barclays and Women in Retail share common values on the development of people and commitment to the retail sector, which make the partnership a great fit.”
Head of Industry, Retail & Wholesale at Barclays Corporate
Elixirr is a different type of consultancy – they help large organisations change the game in their industries, and they’re changing the game in their own.
You can’t out-innovate the market. Elixirr helps executive boards understand this, and ensures their business model can respond effectively to disruptive forces. You’ve heard of the challenger banks? They’re the challenger consultancy.
“Getting more women into executive leadership positions is not just morally right, it’s commercially right. It should be at the top of every CEO’s agenda for one very valid reason: the customer.”
