Fespa has announced the return of its popular Coffee Break webinars, which offer printers the opportunity to hear from industry experts on process control, sustainability, colour management and automation.
Hosted by Fespa head of associations and technical lead, Graeme Richardson-Locke, the second series has been launched in response to the positive feedback and interest from attendees of the first eight webinars which took place from October 2020 to March 2021.
Fespa said the episodes attracted 1,085 attendees in total, from 130 countries, over 75 per cent of whom were very positive in their feedback. Many also stated that they were very likely to recommend Fespa’s Coffee Breaks to others.
Fespa said feedback from attendees highlighted the value of the webinars in supporting business recovery and planning.
The first webinar of this series took place on 18 May, where Richardson-Locke was joined by Fespa colour expert and owner of The Missing Horse Consultancy, Paul Sherfield, as well as Craig Dennis, reprographics specialist and founder of the Colour Den.
In the episode, the experts discussed customer satisfaction and how printers can meet and exceed expectations. They considered how printers can be successful in ensuring consistency, clarity and measurement, and highlighted the importance of colour management workflows.
On 1 June at 11am BST (8pm AEST), the second webinar will focus on the print industry standards, available certifications and why they’re valuable.
Richardson-Locke will once again be joined by Sherfield, as well as Laurel Brunner, managing director of prepress and publishing consultancy Digital Dots, to offer advice on how printers can implement best practice processes to meet industry standards and deliver premium quality products and services.
“Fespa’s Coffee Break webinars are centered around FESPA’s core purpose – to educate, inspire, connect and expand the speciality print community, and we’re encouraged by the positive feedback from delegates on the webinars’ role in enabling printers to make business decisions that will fuel their future growth,” Richardson-Locke said.
“We’re excited to be returning with a new series as we continue to focus on supporting the speciality print community. In the upcoming episodes, we’ll be delving deeper into process control, sustainability, automation and colour management and we’re thrilled to be joined by highly knowledgeable industry experts to help us to do that.”
The webinars are free to attend and will share advice and knowledge, as well as giving attendees the opportunity to ask questions to the experts.
Subsequent webinars will take place every two weeks and more information on the upcoming episodes will be made available soon.
