Lara Gibson-Chant is the co-founder of Brityard - a start-up concept that is reimagining high-street real estate.
Formerly a corporate strategist, Lara led the development and delivery of group strategy across a £40 million global media portfolio, working across 17 diverse sectors.
Under her leadership, Brityard has evolved from a digital marketplace into a physical destination. Currently partnering with The Crown Estate to transform an underutilised Regent Street site into a collaborative hub hosting best-in-class local brands and talent.
Challenging traditional retail norms, Brityard operates a membership model that goes beyond offering shelf space and instead enables brands and talent to utilise premium high street real estate for brand-led activations, events, sampling, networking, collaborations and more.
Brityard aspires to build an empowered community with shared values and beliefs, envisioning international expansion to offer a comprehensive blend of immersive retail, hospitality, and event experiences showcasing the diverse excellence of "brand Britain" on the global stage.
