Special guest Vicki Wonfor, Joint Managing Director at Rosebery’s London, joins us to discuss her journey through the art market, the importance of relationships to develop in the art world and staying ahead of change in the market.
“I strived to want to do more and I could see the industry changing around me. If you’re a driven person, you need that stimulus, that constant change and growth, and that keeps you wanting to do your job. This was important for me because I had a platform and someone who was supporting me, there was no reason not to.”
