LIMA outlines its 2019 Young Professionals Educational Programme

LIMA has outlined its 2019 Young Professionals Educational Programme, with the first event taking place at the end of this month.

The Young Professionals Networking Coffee Morning will be held on March 29th and take place at The Ivy Club, London, where attendees will hear from LIMA’s panel of licensing industry veterans about their careers and experience.

Cartoon NEtwork’s Graham Saltmarsh, Rockpool Licensing’s Vickie O’ Malley, Rocket’s Richard Hollis and Penguin Random House’s Susan Bolsover will host the session and offer their views on where they see the industry heading for the next generation.

Later this year, LIMA will host the YPN Retail Speed Mentoring session, held at Coca Cola’s event space for a first of its kind event this June 20th.

LIMA will be inviting retail buyers from Tesco, Selfridges, John Lewis and The Entertainer to host tables and give career advice to its junior licensing executives.

The line-up will continue over the course of the year with LIMA’s heritage event in August, its Digital Platforms Seminar in September and the Autumn/Winter Party. Details of each will be confirmed at a later date.
