  • Visual Impact: Currie Group big rig rolls in

    Currie Group’s mobile showroom.

    Currie Group has announced it will be bringing its mobile showroom to Stand A28 at Visual Impact in Brisbane next week, giving visitors to the show a VIP preview of its latest technology Roadshow on what will be the show’s largest stand by a country mile.

    Currie Group is well known for its innovative Roadshows, trucking the latest technology around the country to provide print service providers with hands-on access to the very latest technologies.

    Now, Visual Impact visitors will have the opportunity to see its latest iteration, which showcases inline automated booklet production via the innovative combination of an HP Indigo 7900 Digital Press with a Horizon 200 series booklet maker.

    The combo, which made its world debut at PacPrint 2017 in Melbourne last year, delivers true ‘end-to-end’ productivity and solutions and is a perfect illustration of automated printing – a theme which is underscored by the company’s eye-catching Robot, which will also be on the mobile showroom.

    Phillip Rennell, Currie Group.

    “The Horizon booklet maker takes the sheets from the HP Indigo and, in one operation, stitches, folds and trims, to deliver a finished product onto the conveyor at the far end, all without a single touch point,” explains Phillip Rennell, director of sales and marketing at Currie Group.

    The setup, which Rennell admits only fits into the specially modified truck ‘by the width of a sheet of paper’, will provide an interesting addition to the diverse range of technology on show at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.

    It will be complemented by a range of finishing equipment – Horizon RD-4055 rotary die-cutting system, Horizon SmartSlitter sheet cutter and creaser, Horizon CRF-362 creaser and folder, Foliant Mercury 400SF laminator, which will be set up on the apron in front of the mobile showroom.

    The company’s involvement at Visual Impact made sense, says Rennell, particularly given that the company is about to kick off another major Roadshow from outside the company’s showroom in Queensland’s sunny capital on 2 and 3 May, before heading South to Albury and Adelaide.

    “We have a long association with VI, so we know the value of the show and its importance to the industry,” he said. “Given that our next Roadshow event will start outside our Brisbane showroom early next month, VI Brisbane was the perfect opportunity for us to give some of the industry’s key decision makers a look at technology many of them may not have had the opportunity to see at PacPrint, while also kicking off the Roadshow.”

    Visual Impact will open its doors next Thursday, 19 April, and run from 10am till 6pm on Thursday and Friday, and from 10am until 4pm on Saturday 21st. To skip the queues, register online or for more information about the show, go to the Visual Connections website.

  • Currie goes LIVE in Melbourne

    Lively in-depth discussion was a feature of the Currie LIVE event in Melbourne this week.

    Currie Group went LIVE this week, with a series of Open House sessions showcasing a range of equipment, which they say can help print service providers expand their offering and multiply the value of their print products exponentially.

    Over three days, the company opened its Melbourne showroom to a steady stream of interested groups, keen to take advantage of the opportunity for a more personal, hands-on look at the technology they had seen at PacPrint.

    “PacPrint generated a huge amount of interest for us but it’s a very busy environment with a lot of people coming through at the one time,” said Currie Group Sales & Marketing Director, Phillip Rennell. “Currie LIVE gives us the opportunity for our customers to have a closer, more in-depth look at the technology, and how it can add value to their business.”

    As the name suggests, the event was characterised by job production ‘on the fly’, with a wide variety of jobs shown in production on a suite of the latest technology.

    Headlining the event was the new HP Indigo 12000 Digital Press, the versatile B2 powerhouse that offers significant innovations in print quality, productivity and colour matching capabilities for print across a wide range of substrates and commercial applications.

    “The HP Indigo 12000 illustrates exactly what our Currie LIVE event is all about – the ability to add value to print by utilising the capabilities of digital technologies and workflows, to produce everything from oversized books and posters, to work on substrates from synthetic substrates to canvas, all with outstanding results,” Rennell said.

    “In today’s market, we have a situation where the print buyer is looking for the point of difference, the edge that print can deliver over competing channels. Innovation is the key to delivering that value through product diversity, customisation, embellishment and other key value-adds which not only deliver better value to the customer, but are also the key to achieving the kind of margins which drive success for print service providers.”

    On the other side of the showroom, these ‘value-adds’ were highlighted on the Scodix UltraPro with Foil station, an exceptionally versatile B2 digital enhancement press which offers a range of varnishes, embossing, foiling and other tactile and visually stunning embellishments which can add enormous value to print.

    With Currie’s Scodix product specialist Gil Cortes and Lior Meron, President of Scodix for Asia Pacific, on hand to explain the capabilities to printers, it was an ideal opportunity for many to consider the potential of embellishment to help enhance the value of their products – and to get a close look at the technology ahead of the company’s official release of the machine’s ‘big brother’, the Scodix E106 B1 enhancement press which is to be launched in Germany next month.

    “These machines have been enormously popular in the market since drupa because of their demonstrated return on investment,” Meron said, adding that the technology was particularly popular in the packaging market, where product embellishment can add enormous value to shelf-appeal.

    “We are pleased to be here to talk to Australian and New Zealand printers in more detail about the technology and how it can open the door to increased profitability for a wide range of commercial work from posters and greeting cards, to magazine and book printing, packaging and converting applications, and even products like plastic loyalty cards.”

    Customisation – showcased so popularly at PacPrint with personalised shrink sleeve wine labels produced on stand on the HP Indigo WS6800 Digital Press– was also a feature, with HP’s Daniel Blau on hand to discuss the Mosaic application, which plugs in to InDesign or Illustrator to create a SmartStream Designer which can create an almost limitless range of personalisation options which are already in use by major brands around the world to drive product promotion through customer engagement, special limited editions and other marketing campaigns.

    Complementing the larger flagship machines was a range of other finishing technology from Horizon including an SPF 200L booklet maker, BQ-280 PUR perfect binder, HT 30C on-demand trimmer, APG-610 paper cutter, AFC-566 FKT cross-folder and CRF 362 crease and fold unit, and a Foliant Taurus 530 SF laminator.

    “It’s been fantastic to meet with a wide range of businesses over the past few days, to discuss how the right technology can not only allow them to expand their offering to their customer base, but to exponentially increase the value of their print and the margins they can achieve,” said Phil Rennell as his team put the equipment through its paces for visitors.

    “Every business is different, so each will require a tailored solution to suit their specific requirements. Events like Currie LIVE are a great opportunity for us to showcase the options to our clients, and help them determine how the latest technologies can complement their particular business strengths and focus, and enhance their success.”

  • Press Print unveils HP Indigo 12000

    (L-R) Spencer Haste, Phillip Rennell (Currie Group), Kevin Stevens, Allain Pool.

    Press Print’s Port Melbourne premises were buzzing last night as close to 200 people gathered at a special Open House event to celebrate the company’s latest investment, Australia’s first HP Indigo 12000 digital press, installed in June by Currie Group.

    The Open House event introduced the company’s creative and corporate clients to HP’s new flagship B2 press in action and, for some, was also the first opportunity to witness the mix of production technologies Press Print employs to create its unique, high-end print solutions.

    Founded in 2010 by Kevin Stevens, Press Print has already built an enviable reputation for the kind of creative and highly customised print and finishing which most printers would put firmly in the ‘too hard’ basket. Now in its fourth up-sized premises, and with some 16 staff and two additional partners – Allain Pool joined Kevin in March 2011 and Spencer Hast followed in September 2013 – the company achieves these results by utilising a range of contemporary and traditional technologies, all on show last night.

    Phillip Rennell, Director of Sales & Marketing at Currie Group, said Press Print’s dramatic growth rate came as no surprise, given their dedication to innovative printed solutions.

    “We’re really impressed with Press Print’s ability to make use of all the colours available on the HP Indigo 12000, especially combining the use of White Ink to make absolutely stand-out printed material for their clients,” he commented, looking at the print samples on show. “Tonight’s turnout is a testament to how much their customers benefit from the innovation and attention they get from Press Print – they really demonstrate their commitment to create with heart and craft by hand.”

    The new HP Indigo 12000 was undoubtedly the star of last night’s show, demonstrating in action the kind of flexibility and performance rarely seen in the digital print space. With a sheet size of 750 x 530mm and the ability to handle a wide range of substrates, it’s capable of a huge variety of work, from posters and folders, to oversized books and catalogues, and even canvas wall art, all with digital’s ability to customise and personalise. Moreover, the quality is remarkable, thanks to HP’s IndiChrome Plus which combines CMYK with orange, violet and green for exceptional colour accuracy, and output resolution of up to the HDI equivalent of 2438 x 2438dpi.

    While that quality is important for Press Print, Kevin says it’s the flexibility of the Indigo 12000 which really sold them on the investment. “With a lot of digital presses, the stock selection is very limited, and for a business like ours that specialises in unique and creative work, that can be a real problem,” he acknowledges.

    “Fortunately, HP is leading the market in this regard, with in-line priming on the Indigo 12000 allowing us to still print on virtually anything we want, and do it up to the B2 size. We’re so delighted with the results that we’re retro-fitting the new in-line priming to the HP Indigo 7800 as well.”

    After a short welcome last night from Spencer, HP’s BDM Jason Beckley, invited guests to ‘feel the heartbeat of the industry’ – and that’s exactly what they did.

    The Indigo 12000 was run in full production mode alongside its smaller brother, an HP Indigo 7800, and the latest Mimaki JFX 200-2513 flatbed digital wide-format press (it’s stablemate, the roll-to-roll JV 400-160 LX model, wasn’t required for the Open House jobs).

    Just metres away, visitors were able to see the jobs progress through various finishing and embellishment stages – trimming, folding, foiling and forme cutting – giving many the opportunity to see processes they’d never before witnessed, thanks to the company’s unique blend of technologies which span well over a century. Alongside guillotines, a saddle stitcher and PUR binding line, three original Heidelberg platens – each marked with the year of manufacture and the proud ‘Original Heidelberg’ plate – and a newer YAWA machine, all used for foil stamping and embossing, sit alongside the mammoth jaws of a Lyon Platen ‘clam shell’ forme cutting press and, nearby, a Singer sewing machine for hand-sewn finishing.

    While only the platens and the clam shell were in operation last night, Press Print’s top-class crafts people – rare commodities themselves, these days – regularly employ all these classics to add embellishments and finishing touches which are almost extinct in today’s push-button age.

    “We’ve always tried to be ‘more than just a printer,” Allainexplains. “Our point of difference is to do what other printers can’t – the unusual and remarkable jobs which challenge us, showcase the tactile, personal and physical impact that print can provide, and provide real cut-through and effectiveness for our clients.”

    Those clients – largely creatives like agencies, design houses and high-end corporates – have grown into the company’s most enthusiastic advocates; so much so that the company has never needed to employ sales reps, as it is constantly flat out keeping up with ‘word of mouth’ demand.

    That enthusiasm was evident from the reactions in the crowd last night, as they closely followed the ‘real time’ production, with many commenting on its advantages for their businesses.

    Matt Osborne and Bonnie Eichelberger, both Designers and Printers from The Hungry Workshop, impressed with the versatility of the new machine, said the new HP Indigo 12000 had allowed them to explore more crative possibilities and offer more choice to their clients, while Heather-Rain O’Neill, Production Manager at Melcorp Real Estate said the ability to produce top quality and accurate colour for the company’s quick-turnaround, short run brochures, was ‘perfect’.

    Tom Shanahan, Director at Confetti, said the quality was impressive while the larger sheet capacity means his jobs are more cost-effective, without sacrificing quality. “The ability to print white is a nice surprise, too,” he added.

    For the directors, it was a welcome opportunity to show off the expanded capabilities to their most important audience – their clients.

    “Many of the people here tonight are long-term clients, so they’re already familiar with what we do, but it was great to be able to show them how it’s done and to introduce them to the new Indigo,” Kevin said as the crowds began to thin out later in the evening.

    “We’re very keen for our clients to ‘think big’ and really push the boundaries. Even before tonight, the reaction has been pretty phenomenal and we have been starting to see jobs come in that have been designed specifically with the new digital press in mind.

    “I think this Open House really helped people to get their heads around how they can use the expanded potential it offers and, if the level of excitement we’ve seen tonight is anything to go by, I’d expect to see many more clients making the most of that opportunity in future.”

  • Stage set for Tuesday’s PacPrint grand opening

    PacPrint 2017, the print and graphic communication industry’s premier event, is demonstrating a commitment to smart manufacturing technologies and innovation which will deliver energy solutions to manufacturing industries across Australia – and Hon. Lily D’Ambrosio, Minister for Energy, Environment & Climate Change, has reinforced the State Government’s support for these technologies by officially opening the expo next week.

    Among the latest technologies on display at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre will be the first public demonstration of new ‘printable’ solar energy panels developed by the University of Newcastle (UON).

    Located on the lawn area between the MCEC and the Yarra River, the custom-built 100m2 pop-up site will allow the public to touch the material and walk through and under it, as well as introduce its potential to the 12,000 print industry professionals who are expected to attend PacPrint 2017.

    Lily D'Ambrosio, Victorian Minister for Energy, Environment & Climate Change.

    Minister D’Ambrosio said, “This project is yet another great example of the innovative new energy technologies that we can develop here in Victoria with the right support. It’s good for local manufacturing, and it’s good for jobs.”

    The organic solar cells module is an initiative from the Priority Research Centre for Organic Electronics (PRCOE) at UON. Organic solar cells are the third generation of solar technology and are produced via a printing process, making PacPrint the ideal place to host this display.

    Professor Paul Dastoor.

    “The cost and speed at which this technology can be deployed is exciting, particularly in the current Australian energy context where we need to find solutions, and quickly, to reduce demand on base-load power,” says printed solar creator, UON’s Professor Paul Dastoor.

    “Because of the manufacturing process used, these low-cost, light-weight cells have the potential to revolutionise the production of solar panels and solar energy, as well as helping to deliver a new ‘functional printing’ revenue stream for the printing industry.”

    Print is the second-largest manufacturing industry in Australia generating $8 billion per annum. Comprising 5,294 businesses, small and large, across metropolitan and rural areas, it employs more than 240,000 people across the entire graphic communications chain, making it arguably Australia’s largest manufacturing employer.

    Now, with technologies like printed solar, it is set to become a key provider of energy cells for the country.

    Organic solar cells are only one example of the amazing applications of organic printed electronics being developed for a multitude of uses and, together with things like 3D printing, which is delivering opportunities across areas like Health, Education and Retail, technology is creating important new markets for print.

    PacPrint 2017 will showcase the latest advances from more than 150 exhibitors across 8000 square metres of exhibition space, together with a future-focused professional Forum and Workshop program, at the MCEC from 23 – 26 May inclusive.

    Adrian Fleming, Chair PacPrint 2017

    “We are delighted to be bringing a diverse range of world-leading technologies to PacPrint, including exciting developments like the organic solar initiative, which represents a tremendous opportunity for the sustainability and future of the print industry,” says Adrian Fleming, Chair of PacPrint 2017, adding, “The future for print looks bright indeed.”

    Registration is open at https://www.infosalons.com.au/PACPRINT17M/index.php/.

  • Big sponsors switch on to printed solar launch

    Leading industry suppliers KIWO, Starleaton and Fuji Xerox Australia have confirmed their commitment to future technologies by sponsoring the first public demonstration of printed solar cells from the University of Newcastle, which will be on display at the MCEC during PacPrint.

    The three companies join PacPrint, the University of Newcastle, the CRC for Polymers, the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) and logistics and supply chain company CHEP in sponsoring the installation, which will be constructed on the lawn area between the MCEC and the Yarra River.

    Professor Paul Dastoor.

    Professor Paul Dastoor, who heads the University’s Priority Research Centre for Organic Electronics, which has developed the organic photovoltaic (OPV) cells, says the demonstration is an important step in turning his team’s prototypes into a commercial reality.

    “As researchers, much of what we do happens behind closed doors, but when we get close to a market-ready product, as we have with these printed solar panels, our goal is to report on what we have achieved and work towards getting the product to market,” Professor Dastoor explains.

    “PacPrint is the ideal venue for us to do that, as it not only provides a high profile location for the installation and a great venue for our public lecture, but will also allow us to demonstrate this new technology to the print professionals who will play such an important role in bringing it to a commercial reality.

    “We are delighted to have the support of the PacPrint Board and industry leaders like Fuji-Xerox Australia, Starleaton and KIWO, for this public launch. It is exciting to find companies with both the foresight, and the commitment, to back important new innovations, and we thank them most sincerely.”

    Martin Stacher, KIWO.

    Martin Stacher, Regional Director Asia-Pacific for KIWO, says the decision to sponsor the installation is consistent with his company’s full support for alternative energies and its role as a supplier of pre-press chemistry for the solar cell manufacturing process worldwide.

    “We firmly believe that Australia should be leading the world in renewable energy technologies like solar, wind and water power – in fact, we draw 80% of the energy for our Tullamarine headquarters from a 50KW solar system,” he said today. “We are delighted to be supporting this revolutionary technology display at PacPrint.”

    The University of Newcastle OPV installation will be located on the lawns outside Door 3 to the MCEC during PacPrint 2017, which runs from 23 – 26 May inclusive. A public lecture about the project will be held in the Clarendon Room at the same venue, at 6pm on Wednesday 24 May.

  • $250k still up for grabs in Future Print finale

    The Future Print project, the landmark joint venture initiative between Printing Industries and the AMWU, winds up in just over four months and with $250,000 in subsidised training still to be taken up, the race is on to fill the final subsidised training places.

    Future Print was established in 2012 to address two key areas of challenge for the industry – apprenticeship training and business transformation.

    The project sought, and was granted, Federal Government Funding for two projects. The now completed Future Print Apprenticeship Project saw a new, competency based apprenticeship training model designed and piloted by more than 300 apprentices. The more recent Future Print Business Transformation Project provided the opportunity for businesses to assess their performance, plan the transitions needed to meet future market demands, and train and equip to meet those demands.

    It is this second project, which is due to conclude in mid-May, which David Galbraith and the Future Print team at Printing Industries are working hard to ensure delivers every dollar’s worth of value to the industry.

    David Galbraith, Victoria Future Print advisor, PIAA.

    “To date, we have had hundreds of businesses undertake strategic reviews using the Media Super online Business Benchmarking service and many of those have gone on to work with Future Print consultants and use our Business Toolkit to create workforce development plans,” Galbraith reports.

    “Of the 500 federally-funded places for subsidised training, however, only 465 have been taken up – and now time is running out for businesses to snap up those last 35 places as once the project officially concludes in mid-May, the remaining funding is off the table.”

    While 35 places may not seem many, they collectively represent a quarter of a million dollars in savings for the businesses who take them up – but once the project reaches its end date, the funding is ‘off the table’.

    “Funds must be spent by the project’s conclusion, so while you can theoretically still commence subsidised training at any time up until the middle of May, those who don’t complete the course and get their paperwork done before that cut-off won’t qualify for the second subsidised payment. Realistically, that makes late January this year about the latest a trainee would want to start.”

    Courses available under the Future Print Business Transformation Project including Competitive Systems & Practices (Lean Manufacturing), Small Business, Colour Management, Sales and Digital Upskilling. Further information on each, together with information on how to register, can be found at www.futureprint.org.au or by contacting David Galbraith at Printing Industries on 0434 746 313 or by email at dgalbraith@futureprint.org.au.

  • When a Printing Legend is not a Legend

    You're all legends (l-r) Ken Doggett, Susan Heaney, Peter Carmody. © 2016 Arana Photography by Stephen Jones

    Q: When is a Legend not a Legend? A: When she is a woman. Strong words but the recent ‘Industry Legends Awards’ in Queensland displayed an unfortunate gender bias, maybe innocently, which spurred Robyn Frampton to call it out.

    Let’s not talk numbers, but as many readers of this publication will know, I have been in and around the print and graphic communications industry for a long time, and hope to be around for a long time yet. I’m a passionate advocate for all things print and have a genuine love for, and loyalty to, this sector.

    But recently, I think the industry got something wrong…and I believe it needs to be called out.

    Robyn Frampton

    Just days ago, we saw the Queensland Printing Industry Craftsmanship Awards presented at a glittering ‘Legends Gala Dinner’ at the Pullman Hotel in Brisbane. It was a fantastic night of celebration by all accounts, with some stunning entries, worthy winners, and the recognition of Susan Heaney, Peter Carmody and Ken Doggett with special awards.

    But here’s the rub.

    Peter and Ken were awarded the ‘Industry Legend Award’, but for some reason, Susan was presented with the ‘2016 Industry Award for Women in Print’.

    Now, I’m assured that this is the ‘women’s alternative’ to the Legend Award (for which Susan was also nominated) but, to be honest, I’m not sure that explanation really cuts it – particularly as it’s already been interpreted by some in the trade media as an award recognising Susan’s contribution to the Women in Print group – in reality, just a very small part of her contribution to this industry.

    I know Susan and I respect her energy, her passion and her achievements enormously. She’s clearly a worthy winner of any award for outstanding industry contribution, and I was pleased to see her recognised. But here’s my question: Why can’t a woman be a Legend?

    Haven’t we matured?

    In this day and age, I find it mystifying that organisers would feel the need to create separate awards for men and women.

    Cannot someone who has been a two-term President of the peak industry association, headed up National Print Awards and PICA committees, sat on numerous PacPrint and PrintEx Boards, helped found the Women in Print forum and contributed untold hours of her time to a wide range of other industry initiatives, all while running her own successful printing business, not simply be recognised alongside the men as a true industry Legend?

    And if not, why not?

    It seems archaic at best, patronising at worst, and has the effect – unintended I’m sure – of belittling Susan’s outstanding achievements and sending the message that she can’t mix with the ‘true’ Legends of the industry because…well, because she’s a woman.

    You might think I’m making this into a storm in a teacup. Susan, for her part, has accepted the recognition graciously and chosen the high ground of wry amusement rather than feeling slighted. Good on her – she’s all class.

    But I really think it’s time the rules are rewritten.

    Quite frankly, if you’re a Legend, you’re a Legend, and you should be recognised as exactly that, regardless of gender.

    (For those about to point out that Women in Print is itself inherently sexist, yes, I know. But WiP does not seek to elevate the contribution of women to a higher level than that of their male counterparts. In an industry which is still overwhelmingly male-dominated, it simply provides the industry’s women – many of whom are still the only females in their place of work – with an important social, educational and professional forum where they can connect, share ideas, celebrate their roles and support and encourage each other.)

    The best is the best – irrespective of gender

    We’ve come a long way in this industry over the past few decades, but if we are serious about equality, then we need to make sure that everything we do, from the way we conduct our professional relationships, to workplace behaviour and procedures, and especially on industry platforms like the PICAs, gives equal respect, consideration and recognition to all people, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation or any other criteria. That is what equality looks like.

    This industry faces unprecedented challenges and to meet them, we need the very best of the best. The best talent, the best brains, the best ideas.

    Unless we recognise and encourage the achievements of the industry’s women, just as we do their male counterparts, we are potentially discouraging their involvement in the process and robbing ourselves of half the creativity, innovation and insight our collective wisdom and resources can bring to the process…and the future of our industry will be all the poorer.

  • Free webinars from Future Print

    What a month it’s been! The transformations witnessed at drupa were quickly followed by Brexit shockwaves, while back on home soil a Federal election left voters and business in limbo. Now, as a new Financial Year dawns, Future Print announces a webinar program designed specifically to help businesses successfully navigate this constantly shifting landscape.

    The start of a new Financial year is always a good time to reflect, reassess and plan for the future, but it can be difficult for businesses to know exactly what to focus on when agility and change seem to be the most important indicators of success.

    Tess Julian

    In light of this, Future Print has announced a new series of free Webinars under its ‘Business Transformation Program’, to help businesses become ‘future ready’, whether they have already been involved in earlier workshops and are looking to refresh and reinvigorate the process, or are totally new to the Program.

    Presented by Tess Julian, the principal of the Catalyst Exchange and facilitator of the highly successful Future Print Business Tools for Success workshops, the series draws on Tess’ passion and expertise in helping people innovate to create agile, successful organisations.

    “There is no bad time to assess your business performance and implement change, but certainly the end of financial year is a logical time to pause, evaluate and recalibrate,” Tess said today.

    “In these webinars, we’ll be looking at everything from strategic positioning and business operations, to your interface with customers, how to innovate and effect change and how to build and optimise your workforce.”

    The webinars will also link businesses to the range of resources available from Future Print, including free business benchmarking funded by Media Super and the ‘Tools for Business Transformation’ kit, which covers the webinar subjects in greater detail. Businesses which identify the need to upskill or retrain staff may also be eligible to apply for one of the remaining subsidised training places offered under the Future Print program, although these are filling fast.

    “Whether or not your business has gone through the benchmarking or change management process in the past, nothing is static in our industry or, indeed, the wider global economy,” Tess points out. “Businesses must be dynamic to succeed, so there’s never been a better time to make use of the resources available through Future Print.”

    The webinars will be held early in the new Financial year, running from the second half of July and throughout the month of August, at 12,30pm on Wednesdays. The program is as follows:

    20 July                                      Your Business Operations

    3 August                                  Your Customers

    17 August                               Innovation & Making Change

    31 August                               Developing Your Workforce
