Tony Harmer
You know those movies like Karate Kid, where there’s a wise old guy who helps turn the kid into a hero – well it turns out that Tony’s  that guy for the Adobe design tools. He wants to help folk to do more, in less time, and better than the rest. Tony helps creatives to make things that are built intelligently so that they can edit them with ease. He has more than 160 certifications in these products, including one as a master, and three decades in design/illustration/animation so you know you’re learning the tools and techniques in an informed way.

Peter Mitchell, Membership Development Manager (North East) For The British Printing Industries Federation
Peter started his career in print as an estimator in 1979, moving into sales of pre media, gravure and web offset. He had the privilege working for a number of major UK and European print houses. During this time he saw our industry make the transition from analogue to digital, from consolidation to fragmentation. Peter says ‘One thing is certain our industry is far from stagnant and it is as vibrant as it is challenging’.
