OSS, formerly known as Oxford Summer School, was founded in 1923 by the Drapers Chamber of Trade. It was created to provide retailers with outstanding development opportunities that would transform their careers in the sector.
To ensure its strength the Chamber enlisted the support of top retail leaders and industry speakers to help shape the programme and create a unique opportunity developed by retailers for retailers.
This focus has remained true as we create the conditions for our delegates to be at their best and to stretch their talents within a series of challenging work programmes.
In 2019, OSS became part of the BRC. This brings together the expertise and insights of OSS Retail and the BRC to further enhance the leadership development available and offer unique industry leading learning opportunities.
