SW England Area Group Meeting #4 – 9th September 2015

The next meeting is to be held at The George Inn, Bristol from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.  Please click here for details of the venue.

General topic chosen for the next meeting = Value.
Let’s share some thoughts on:
• How do we add value?
• How can we show that we add value, and what metrics can we use?
• How can we recognise what decision makers care about, and then how do we join our value to these things?
• What practical steps can we take to turn a technical publications department from a cost centre to a profit centre?

ISTC London – Group Visit to St Bride Unveiled Exhibition

The St Bride Foundation, just off Fleet Street was established in 1891 as the social and educational hub of the printing and publishing industries

Its unparalleled library of artefacts and books now plays an important role in illustrating the history of print and graphic design, as well as the history of our culture in general. This collection has not been on public view in the same room before.

The St Bride Unveiled exhibition offers an exclusive opportunity to see highlights from their collection, ranging from the Book of the Dead to the typography of 20th Century signage, and should be fascinating for anyone with an interest in the history and development of the printed word.

Members of the ISTC London Group are planning a group visit to this exhibition, on Thursday 13th August, 2015. We will of course stop for a drink afterwards!

Please book a free ticket to reserve your place.

Please note the visit is self-directed. We will meet at the entrance to the St Bride Foundation at 19:00.
