               Welcome to the September/October e-edition of Inprint.
                 It is vital that the BPIF focuses on the key challenges
               our sector faces, and that we do all we can to protect our            Issue 63 | September/October 2020
               industry and ensure it thrives in the future. On page 4,
               our CEO, Charles Jarrold, talks about what the industry   4                                  13
               has been up to since his last interview 3 months ago.
               Training lies at the core of our strategy, and you can
               read about recent developments on both pages 12 and
               20. It is also important that we educate people about
               the opportunities our industry affords. Many school-
               leavers are pondering their options as they look to take
               their first steps on a career path, but far too few of them
               will consider the print industry as a viable option.
                 We are already aware of and understand the severe
               impact that COVID-19 has had on our industry, and
               on the economy as a whole, but our Printing Outlook
               report on page 24 gives you more of an insight into
               how we are coping as the rebuilding begins.
                 In our last issue, I mentioned the launch of our BPIF
               webinars (The Print Network Webinar Series), and am                                         19
               happy to report that these are going strong. Make sure
               you book in fortnightly and check page 19 to see what’s
               available and to register for future sessions. We have found
               new ways of collaborating, and it's been wonderful to share
               anecdotal tips and see a friendly face at 1pm on a Thursday.
                 For obvious reasons, we were unable to meet in
               person on the terrace at the House of Commons this
               year for our annual Members' Day, but we hope you
               have registered for our Future Focus event (page 19).
               This event is a truly collaborative effort with our partner
               organisations and we have had a huge amount of industry
               support across a range of sectors. Although it won’t feel
               the same, we hope we will have the chance to interact         CONTENTS
