INTERNATIONAL. Welcome to the latest edition of our Travel Retail Women Talk video series, in association with Desigual. This time we speak to Shanghai Tang Director Strategic Development Xiang Gu & Bacardi-Martini Regional Director Europe, Travel Retail Division Aude Bourdier-Rocourt.

In this edition, we consider the different approach that women bring to the business compared to men and also the importance of being confident and embracing change to succeed in travel retail.

The series, which is featured across our web, e-Zine and social media channels, carries video interviews with some of the most prominent and influential women in the industry.

Filming took place at the TFWA World Exhibition in Cannes, where Desigual Travel Retail Marketing Manager Aurore Rezzoagli spoke to 12 women about their experiences.

Desigual Head of Travel Retail Marco Gadola said: “As a leading female-focused fashion brand in the travel retail channel, Desigual’s values mirror the qualities that prominent women are bringing to the industry – Commitment, Leadership, Passion, Creativity, Spirit, Integrity and Inclusiveness.

“Desigual is delighted to collaborate with The Moodie Davitt Report to enable this ‘Women Talk’ video series, exploring unique female perspectives on business, the amazing travel retail industry and life in general. 

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the executives who have participated for their support, enthusiasm and insights into their diverse lives. It was great fun and very inspiring making these videos.”
