BOSS Members' Dayback to list
BOSS Members’ Day is returning to the prestigious Stationers’ Hall on Tuesday 16 July. This one-day event is a key date in the industry’s calendar, attracting a wide variety of delegates from all areas of the sector.
Following on from the exciting news that Simon Drakeford, CEO of the EO Group has been elected as new BOSS Chairman, this will be a fantastic opportunity to meet him as well as new BOSS CEO, Amy Hutchinson and discuss with them both the exciting future of BOSS.
The day will consist of a morning session featuring the 114th BOSS AGM, as well as hearing from Marc Pinner, QQM on effective marketing. This will then be followed by a buffet lunch, providing you with the perfect chance to network with industry peers.
The afternoon session will focus on apprenticeships and training with speakers including, Dan Coshall, Office Oracle on his journey through our industry, as well as Karly Lattimore, Managing Director of BOSS Federation Training on the importance of training and development.
To round off the day there will be a panel question and answer session, with Rob Jenkins, Intergra, Tim Beaumont, Nemo/Office Club, Alex Dunn, Superstat and Julie Hawley, Office Friendly – where they will be quizzed on everything from how they started, to the future of our industry.
