How do you stay one step ahead: Print is constantly evolving at a rapid pace. To keep up with the changes, we need to learn not just from our peers, but also from successful businesses in other industries. I feel the importance of print cannot be overstated, especially in today's world, where deep fakes and other forms of digital manipulation are becoming increasingly common. As a result, the printed word is set to become even more crucial in the years to come. On 18 January, one of our speakers will discuss this topic.

Forty Under Forty (FUF) panel discussion: We will continue with the – Lead the Change Series – launched last year. In this series, we will be speaking to three companies that are being run by young leaders who have either spun off their businesses or received significant investments. There is a lot to learn from their hard work. One of BMPA's young leaders, Ankul Nanavaty, will host the panel discussion.

Women in print discussion: Our industry is often perceived as being male-dominated, but we want to challenge that stereotype. That's why we're hosting a panel discussion featuring women who have not only taken on leadership roles but are also driving their companies forward. Our experienced host for this panel is Iqbal Kherodawala aka ITK.

What do the new generation of print leaders of tomorrow want to do: At PS24, we will hear PC Musthafa share his insights on how his focus and innovation have enabled iD Fresh Foods to achieve great success. Changing the game is the mantra. As an industry we need to realise that. Business plans are no longer limited to ten years. Change may be required annually or even monthly.

Stars of the show: With the likes of Roshan Abbas, Devdutt Patnaik, PC Musthafa, B Sumant, two panel discussions, and Boman Irani – the lineup is packed with powerful speakers. Our theme for the event is "Be unstoppable", and I'm confident that PS24 will be just that. I hope to see everyone who cares about this industry on 18 January 2024.
