This time next week (Tuesday 6 November), The Ladder Club seminar Day One, will be well underway. Newbie and would-be publisher attendees look set to be treated to a wealth of information encompassing the fundamentals of prospering as a greeting card publisher.
And, there is also a stonking line-up of ‘celebrity speakers’ for the second day seminar (Wednesday 7 November). Paperchase’s deputy chairman Timothy Melgund will kick things off, followed by Andy Pearce, founder of online operator Thortful with The Art File’s managing director (and Henries Honorary Achiever), Ged Mace bringing the potent morning session to a close, with lots more treats in the afternoon.
Blue Eyed Sun’s md Jeremy Corner, continuing his long running commitment to The Ladder Club is to provide invaluable business advice on both days.
“When Lynn Tait and I set up The Ladder Club over 20 years ago to help newbie publishers, we had no idea it would have grown to help so many,” commented Jakki Brown, joint managing of Max Publishing (which owns Progressive Greetings/PG Buzz) “This has only been possible due to the incredible support from suppliers and willingness from publishers and retailers to share their insights by speaking at the seminars – and this year’s line up looks set to continue the legacy with great aplomb,” she added.
Representatives from loyal Ladder Club supporters, The Imaging Centre, GF Smith, Enveco, The Sherwood Group, GCA and PG will be sharing their knowledge too.
The Ladder Club seminars (November 6 and 7) take place in the Club’s ‘spiritual home’ of Westcliff on Sea in Essex, with a dinner organised for the evenings prior.
Both seminars are pretty full, but there are a few spaces available, but you need to be quick!
To attend a Ladder Club seminar costs £85 (including VAT) (and includes lunch and refreshments).
