The BPIF will be hosting this year’s Members’ Day on 4 July in London, with a morning conference and the BPIF AGM taking place at the St Bride Foundation and the All-Party Parliamentary Print Group Reception being held at the House of Lords in the afternoon.

Following the success of last year’s conference, the morning will consist of a session hosted by Founder of strategic change consultancy Maverick Planet, Mark Palmer. He will cover topics including why print isn’t the only industry in the midst of change, lessons on leadership and change in a challenging climate and what skills a 21st century business needs. He will pass on practical tips and approaches that can be leveraged by leaders in any business tomorrow.

Charles Jarrold, Chief Executive, says, “For any business looking to adapt to change or evolve in the current climate Mark’s session is a must. He’s worked with a plethora of big names (Bupa, BSkyB, Cadbury, Lego and Samsung to name a few) enacting change in their businesses, and has accumulated many lessons, experiences and practical ideas of how to remove inertia and create successful change”.

In the afternoon members will be provided with a review of the key achievements made by the BPIF over the past year and a look ahead to the coming months. Attendees are then invited to join BPIF on the Terrace at the House of Lords for the annual All-Party Parliamentary Print Group (APPPG) Reception from 15.30 to 17.00. The APPPG is an excellent opportunity to network with MPs, Peers and representatives from print’s key industry bodies to showcase the importance of printing to the UK economy over drinks and canapes.

The cost to attend the conference and lunch is £75 + VAT. Places are limited on a first come first serve. To book your place at these events visit www.britishprint.com/membersday
