Webinar series examine post-pandemic print world

Ricoh has joined forces with the British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF) and Independent Print Industries Association (IPIA) to host a specials series of webinars offering printers a glimpse into life after the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

Starting on May 12th, the series will look at key points of focus for UK print firms and the steps they can take to ensure they are in a strong position for when work returns to near-normal.

Major talking points will include the immediate challenges for staff, customers, technology and business partners, as well as solutions for near-term cash management, resilience and the broader economic outlook, and a detailed plan on how best to return to scale.

BPIF chief executive and guest speaker, Charles Jarrold, says: “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

“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.”
