British Glass Member's Meeting 2014

The annual British Glass Member’s Meeting took place yesterday at the Mercure St Pauls Hotel in Sheffield.

The day included an overview of British Glass’ activities in 2014, as well as future plans, presented by CEO, Dave Dalton and Innovation Director, Malcolm Glendenning. This was followed by a ‘Working in Partnership’ Case Study from BG Project Officer, Chris Sorsby, and Learning & Organisational Effectiveness Manager at Encirc Glass, Angela Chidley, discussing the benefits of working closely together, particularly around the issues of training, school visits and the bespoke IOSH programmes that we have created.

During the short AGM, Davia Walmsley the Creative Director at Daedalian Glass, was voted in as the new President for British Glass for the next two years from January 2015. 

The afternoon session consisted of an interactive group workshop based on the Membership Value Proposition, called ‘Shaping the Future’, whereby members were asked to categorise and prioritise the British Glass services that are of most value and most beneficial to their businesses. 

All the views, feedback and ideas collated on the day will be used to help inform us further in our most recent membership value proposition exercise and a summary of the findings will be sent out to all members.

Thank you from the team at British Glass to those of you who were able to attend. We hope that you found the event interesting and informative and enjoyed hearing about our work on behalf of the industry over the past year and our exciting plans for the future, as well as the opportunity to network with fellow members.
