International Groups Take the Factory Uncovered Seminar and Tour

Fashion-Enter Ltd Director, Caroline Ash talks about the tour groups she welcomed at the Factory in Haringey this week, 17th July 2023.

“We had two international tours in this week. One organised by Kensington Park School, who are regulars with us now, bringing groups to us throughout the summer.

With a project to complete at the end of their experience we did the usual tour but highlighted the areas that would be essential for the project such as: ESG, Re-shoring, Technology, Metaverse and how dramatically the industry is changing and how to keep ahead of these changes. This helped bring to life the industry and gave them lots to think about for their projects.

The second group was another regular for us with a wide range of universities and nationalities, brought to us by Insider London. They were business students and had similar interests to the first group. We had some very in-depth questions and comments. They were a lovely group and really enjoyed seeing the factory operate and understand how this relates to business decisions.”
