L’Oréal is the world's largest cosmetics company, and is therefore an organisation that all of you have probably interacted with at some point in your lives.
Believing that beauty is based on science, L’Oréal has grown a global supply chain to support the whole world in looking and feeling better. This is an unrivalled and exclusive opportunity to pose questions to Chairman of L’Oréal UK and Ireland, Geoff Skingsley:

After a spell as Marketing Manager of the L'Oréal Paris Division in London, he moved to Holland as General Manager, Consumer Products Division, incorporating the L'Oréal, Garnier, Gemey and SBI Fragrance businesses.
In 1994, he moved to India to develop the group there, returning to Europe in 1999 to manage L’Oréal UK.
