Charles Watson to kick off PacPrint Forums

The Real Media Collective’s GM of IR, Policy and Governance, Charles Watson, is set to cover off small business employment matters at the PacPrint Forums in September.

Watson is well known in print industry circles who spent time working at Printing Industries Association of Australia, now PVCA, before joining The Real Media Collective in early 2020.

He has extensive experience in workplace relations, human resources, performance management, termination, workplace change, employment contracts, post-employment restraints, enterprise agreements, industrial disputes, company policies, internal investigations and workplace litigation.

Watson will kick-off the PacPrint Forums on Tuesday September 28 with a morning session on Small Business Employment Matters.

Visual Connections is the organiser and co-host of PacPrint and Business Development Manager, Sarah Moore, says the session will give businesses crucial insights and understanding across a range of issues to help them ensure success while adhering to employment laws.

“Charles is known for his practical and commercially-driven solutions and strategies, and in the Tuesday morning session, he’ll bring that pragmatism to bear on a range of employment issues facing SME’s, not only now but into next year,” Moore said.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Contracts of employment
  • Awards and related conditions
  • Casual employment
  • Compliance requirements
  • Legislative amendments
  • How to avoid common pitfalls

“In addition, Charles has allowed time at the conclusion of the session for what he calls an ‘Ask Me Anything’ question time,” Moore said.

“He’s made it clear he is happy to also make himself available to business owners after the seminar, for those who may need a more detailed discussion on these, or related issues.”

The PacPrint Forum Series will run daily at PacPrint 2021, which will co-locate with Visual Impact Melbourne and the Label & Packaging Expo at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 28 September to 1 October this year.
