  • Why was Burberry able to turn around?
  • Burberry is 160 years old in 2016. Find another firm in any industry and any country that has also survived over 150 years (or at least 100 years). What are the “secrets” behind its longevity?
  • Some argue that there is no future in made- in-UK textile products. Others suggest iconic UK firms have a special responsibility to create jobs by manufacturing products in the UK. What is your view on this debate?
