Forthcoming Speakers

April 2019 Denise Weait

Denise is Sales Manager for Advantage Printroom, a Bracknell based printer who specialize in printing and delivering training manuals & related materials directly to their customers training sites. They print and ship within 24 hours of receipt of order, ensuring clients have enough time to confirm delegate numbers and yet have all the required materials for the start of the course.
Another big part of their business is printing marketing brochures and leaflets. Digital printing enables smaller runs, including proofs, which can be tailored to specific campaigns within modest budgets.

Denise will be teaching us how to prepare documents and printing jobs in such as way that the printer can get it right first time and in so doing provide customers with higher quality and cheaper printing, ensuring customer satisfaction. All small businesses will need printing jobs doing, the easier we make them for the printer, the more likely it is that we will get the design we want at a good price and within the timescale.
