Episode 3 of Ball & Doggett's YouTube series RESET - “What optimism looks like to you for your business right now?”- features Allain Pool, managing director of Melbourne’s Press Print, a high-end digital printer with a staff of 20, and Charlton Hemingway, MD of production consultancy Work Works.
The RESET series, hosted by B&D business development manager Zaidee Jackson, is designed as a conversation connecting the industry, featuring clients, suppliers and peers. “Press Print and Work Works are renowned for their honest translation to complex briefs, partnering with their clients for bespoke outcomes,” said B&D.
“The next 6-12 months we as a business need to vigilant and considered whilst acknowledging and moving forward based on our learnings of the past few months,” said Press Print MD Allain Pool. “Good businesses will thrive. We remain optimistic as a business with a positive mindset understanding our strengths. We are confident that our foundation built with our business from its inception will put us in good stead not only for our longevity but our clients and our relationships with them.”
Charlton Hemingway, managing director, Work Works said: “The dialogue that has been opened up from the temporary physical distancing has allowed new conversations and more open minds to what’s possible. As I read the other week, “Don’t let a good crisis go to waste.” There are some huge impacts at the moment that are devastating and need to be acknowledged, but there are other by-products that as a sector we need to keep our minds and eyes open to.”
