The way people spend is changing, and so is The Royal Mint. Anne Jessopp, CEO of The Royal Mint, will explore how Britain's oldest company forged an exciting future rooted in its heritage. Over the last three years this 1,100 year old business has successfully expanded into new markets and attracted new customers whilst retaining a focus on precious metals, design and craftsmanship.

Anne has significant experience in leading cultural change, manufacturing and growing new business gained at some of the UK's biggest firms including Procter and Gamble, RAC and Rolls Royce.
Since joining The Royal Mint in 2008 Anne has held several positions on the Board, including HR Director and Director of Consumer, and has been a spearhead for the reinvention of the business.
Under Anne's leadership The Royal Mint has remained the world's leading export mint, whilst successfully diversifying into investment products, collector services and a visitor attraction.
A particular passion during her career has been working with companies who are developing their culture and undergoing significant change. As a result, The Royal Mint is now firmly delivering its strategy of reinvention, whilst retaining its unique heritage as The Original Maker of meaningful products and services.
