It was a great pleasure to represent the Stationers' Company at a barbecue lunch in Leeds on 1 August 2017 to celebrate Yorkshire Day, as well as print, creative and digital success in the north of England. The event was jointly organised by the BPIF and CDI Yorkshire.
The guest speaker was Henri Murison, Director of the Northern Powerhouse Partnership, (pictured above), who spoke eloquently about the importance of devolution and the vital need for infrastructure investment in the north of England.
It was great to see so many Stationers at the event and I was delighted to hear that Liveryman Robert McClements, who has done so much to champion print in Yorkshire and the Stationers' Company's Northern Region group, has just been appointed the new President of CDI Yorkshire. A very well-deserved accolade!
