Designed for the young and the young at heart, LEGO House is composed of 21 huge “bricks” stacked on top of one another to evoke a toy building. Jesper has ensured the House is a manifestation of the very essence of the LEGO idea, organising experiences and exhibitions related to the LEGO philosophy that learning through play promotes innovation and creativity.

Gant is an international clothing brand renowned for its quality and shirts. Following Brian’s passion, leadership and boundless curiosity, he moved from his position as chief marketing officer to CEO of Gant in 2018. With a strong vision and understanding of the brand, Brian is transforming Gant to evolve in alignment with today’s rapidly changing retail environment and lead the brand into the next stage of international expansion and growth.
Creative Director at Bang & Olufsen
A graduate of the European Business School in London, Jonathan Lowth working in advertising agencies in Denmark for over 20 years with clients such as Lego, Carlsberg, Apple, IBM and Innocent. However, the opportunity to join a truly iconic brand at a time where a massive strategic shift was on the horizon was a challenge not to be ignored. Three years later, Bang & Olufsen is recording double digit growth for the thirteenth consecutive quarter and constantly rating as one of the most desirable brands in the industry. As Global Head of Creative, Jonathan has first-hand experience of what works, (and what doesn’t) in the complex ecosystem of luxury lifestyle branding.
