Ricoh UK, London, October 13, 2022 – Ricoh has launched the second series of its Anything in Print podcast.
Following on from the success of the original podcast launched in 2021, the latest release celebrates the businesses and organisations at the forefront of the print industry. The sector has experienced an unprecedented change in recent years, and each podcast episode will delve deep into how these organisations have adapted, evolved, and ultimately thrived thanks to the commitment and passion of the people behind the scenes.
Simon Isaacs, National Sales Director at Ricoh Graphic Communications, is the host of the Anything in Print podcast. He commented: ‘Our Champions of Print are the people and the businesses that keep our industry moving, shifting narratives, and creating culture while delivering exceptional service to their customers. This industry has seen more unparalleled challenges in the last couple of years than ever before, and we are very proud to be working side-by-side with its leaders to innovate, collaborate and problem-solve for a successful future. In similarity to our previous series, the purpose of the latest release is to share our collective knowledge, learn from each other, and hopefully inspire others on their journey of transformation.’ He added: ‘I would like to thank all our guests for taking the time to share their inspiring stories with our listeners.’
The first episode in the new series features Charles Jarrold, the CEO of British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF), discussing the ever-evolving landscape that businesses need to navigate and delving into why – and how – they keep going. He also provides his thoughts on what support is available to the organisations wanting to transform and take advantage of the opportunities presenting themselves in the current market.
There will be a total of 10 episodes released monthly, with the guests debating how they have implemented successful transformation and diversification strategies that have enabled them to thrive in the digital world, amongst other topics. Some of the confirmed speakers include:
- Communisis - Cara Walker, Executive Director of Digital Solutions; and Christina McMinn, Executive Director of Manufacturing and Logistics
- Paragon - Sue Evren, Managing Director of Tewkesbury and Bristol sites
