Tuesday 12 May will see the first of a series of webinars hosted by Ricoh, the BPIF and IPIA, to examine key challenges facing the UK print sector and how PSPs can acclimatise to a ‘new normal’.
The first webinar starts at 11am and will run for up to an hour, with speakers including BPIF CEO Charles Jarrold and IPIA CEO Marian Stefani.
Topics for discussion include: the immediate challenges for the workforce, customers, technology and business partners; solutions for near-term cash management, resilience and the broader economic outlook; a detailed plan on how best to return to scale, as knock-on effects become clear; creating the ‘new normal’ and how to lead a business through a difficult situation; rethinking how our production works and identifying current processes that, in itself, can lead to redefining a business; look at inspiring stories that put print at the heart of future communication strategies; and the importance of joining forces with the right business partner to support the transformation.
Jarrold said: “Individuals and business have had to adapt incredibly quickly to drastically changed circumstances. In partnership with the IPIA, we’ve played a key role informing and advising both government and the sector. We’re delighted to be able to participate in this webinar as we look at how the sector had to change, and what impact that has on the future”
Stefani added: "What is vital now is that we don't just assume things will go back to how they were before lockdown. This situation will have a lasting effect on our industry, and I am delighted to be taking part in a discussion that can help guide businesses through this challenge."
Webinars will run from May until July covering a range of topics and providing tactical advice on how to manage transformation and business evolution during a changing industry landscape.
