Just to show how busy the social life of a Clerk is, immediately before the Young Stationers Dinner yesterday evening, I attended the PrintWeek Power 100 event at Stationers Hall.
The Court Room was full of the great and the good of the printing industry and I had a long chat with Sir John Madejski of BGP as well as bumping into, amongst many others, Gerard Heanue of Heidelberg and Wayne Barlow of Canon UK. Despite these troubled times, everyone seemed in fine form.
I was delighted that Stationers' Hall was able to host this prestigious event for the third year running and it was good to see many printers coming to the Hall for the first time.
I had to dash off (on my bicycle!) before the results were announced but I hear on the grapevine that Pat Martell, CEO of St Ives, hit the number two slot; so many congratulations to him.
It was a great evening and the Stationers' Company was very pleased to be able to host this prestigious event.
