“The second lockdown across New Zealand has created more challenges for the industry as genuine fatigue sets in. This session is timely and one I’m very proud to be part of for our PrintNZ members and the broader industry,” said Ruth Cobb, Chief Executive Officer, PrintNZ.
The Power of Print series covered three key themes: understanding your customer, business building and sharing knowledge. Over the last 10-weeks Industry speakers have shared their stories of success, while experts discussed business strengthening and customers explored what they need from printers in a post-pandemic world.
Sponsors of the series include Konica Minolta as Platinum Sponsor, Media Super as industry partner, Sprinter as media partner and Australia Post as distribution sponsor.
“Konica Minolta have been thrilled to support the Power of Print initiative and this added session was a no-brainer. Our industry really needs to come together and take learnings from this important session, we welcome a really positive discussion to support us all enrich our mental wellness at these difficult times,” commented Sue Threlfo, General Manager, Konica Minolta.
Steven Gamble is a well-known mental health crusader, bringing focus across the importance of mental health for all. Gamble’s key mantra is “health is health” and he uses this to say the same priority should be placed on mental health as it is on physical health.
This includes not only providing skills to manage mental wellness, but also how we can promote positive conversations to support our colleagues, our families, our friends and our communities.
“This is an important topic for all of us, from business owners to employees alike. Ongoing lockdowns, restrictions and uncertainty creates challenges for all of us and I am really pleased to be part of this webinar,” The Real Media Collective CEO Kellie Northwood said.
“Not only to be able to share some applicable steps to assist us all during these times, but also to the panellists who have agreed, with great courage, to share their stories.
“The open Q&A session will also provide opportunity for the entire audience to engage. I want ‘an all of industry’ discussion across two countries to provide our industry real support and encourage everyone to offer the time for their employees to log-in and attend.”
