Gerard Heanue

“From a business perspective, Corporate Mem¬bership of the Stationers’ Company provides Heidelberg with access to interesting and informative events and the Hall is an impressive venue for both UK and overseas visitors. Personally I am proud to be a Liveryman and it is a privilege to meet and network with my peers across the whole content and communications supply chain. It provides convivial entertainments but also has an important charitable role and remains relevant to the trades it represents.’’
