Graph Expo Feedback
The first-ever BPB Brainstorming Session follows the highly successful Buyer Brainstorming Session led by BPB and Print Buyers International founder Margie Dana at the recent Graph Expo in Chicago. There, Dana said, buyers exchanged ?tons of ideas? about print industry changes and the impact on their careers.
?When I saw the overwhelmingly positive response to our Brainstorming Session at Graph Expo, I knew we needed to introduce the format here,? says Dana. ?I think print buyers everywhere are eager to talk about how their jobs are changing and what?s happening with the print industry today. The December BPB dinner meeting in Waltham will be the perfect place for print buyers to connect around shared opportunities and challenges.?
Dana, who works closely with both purchasers and producers of print, will facilitate the December 10th discussion. Topics to be covered will include:
- Career growth for professional print buyers;
- Self promotion for print buyers;
- How to educate colleagues about new print technologies;
- Best buyer resources;
- Creative cost-cutting ideas.
Highlights of the session will be compiled into a Wrap-Up Brainstorming Document and provided FREE to all Brainstorming Session attendees.
The interactive format of the upcoming Brainstorming Session is sure to generate lots of lively discussion and great new ideas. ?People who buy printing are creative by nature,? Dana says. ?If you purchase printing, you?ll want to learn how successful print buyers are transforming their careers for the challenges of today."
