The Rt Hon. The Baroness Dean of Thornton-le Fylde will be the guest speaker, as she is the 2017 president of the charity.

Baroness Dean comments: “The Printing Charity does a great job and I’m proud to be its 2017 President. I’ve enjoyed continuing my association with what is now a wide-ranging industry, as well as supporting the annual Print Futures Awards. The charity’s Annual Luncheon is a brilliant networking event for people in the industry.”

The Printing Charity will have much to celebrate at the luncheon, after a successful year meeting targets and aiding members of the industry. Last year 1,646 people benefitted from the charity’s work, which was an increase of 44 percent compared to 2015. For this year, the fund set a target of reaching 1,999 people in need in the print industry.

The Baroness has been part of the print industry for some time, and it began with her election to general secretary of the Society of Graphical and Allied Trades (SOGAT). This union aids the printing, publishing, and paper industry.

In 1993, Baroness Dean was appointed to Life Peer and in 1998, became a member of the Privy Council in 1998.

Other than being the 2017 president for The Printing Charity, Baroness Dean keeps busy with other projects. She is also the chairman of Empiric Student Property, chairman of Residential Secure Income, and a member of the Business Oversight Board of the Law Society, alongside other posts.
