I found the event very good and it offered a great opportunity to learn about the industry. One of the elements that I enjoyed was the context that you provided through insights into the market … its influencers, customers and partners. Jules Lund’s session was an example of this as were the ‘case studies’ presented. I found it interesting that many of the presentations and comments from people in the room echoes those of our customers, there are parallels between the industries / markets as people face the challenge of change. I am excited to learn more and the conference proved to me that FXA has value to provide to areas of the market. Quentin Sandery, Fuji Xerox Australia (FXA).

Events like these are always stimulating and thought-provoking, and give one a renewed perspective on one’s own business. I’ve learnt over the years that usually in these events there is only a portion of the content that is relevant but in the case of this conference everything had some form of relevance. Rory Kelly, Director, Profile Packaging.
