Office Club Conference 2017 Keynote Speaker Announced

Dealer group Office Club is delighted to announce Robert Baldrey as a keynote speaker at the 25th anniversary conference in Stratford-upon-Avon on the weekend of 16-18th June.

Presenting on the topic of “The Business Supplies Industry: Have we reached the Tipping Point?” members will be given an insight into the views, thoughts and advice from over 25 years of working in the office supplies industry. Robert began his career with Spicers, qualifying as an accountant whilst working for the UK wholesaler from 1982 until 1989. He then worked for global distribution company TNT for three years in Amsterdam, before re-joining Spicers in 1992 as Finance Director of their French subsidiary.

Leaving Spicers France in 1998 Robert joined Computer Sciences Corporation in a number of senior finance roles in London and Brussels, returning to Spicers for the second time as European CFO in 2001.  In 2010, he became CEO of Vasanta, and later EVO Group following the acquisition of office2office plc in 2014. In 2016, Robert left EVO and after completing a number of consulting assignments he was recently appointed Managing Director of Staples UK and Ireland.

Commenting on the announcement, Office Club CEO Toby Robins said: “Members will be in for an inspirational start to the weekend with Robert offering his knowledge and expertise on the hot topics that are relevant to each and every one of our dealers’ businesses. Since leaving EVO Group in April 2016 Robert has made high profile presentations in the industry including chairing the OPI European Forum in London and the Global Forum in Chicago, so we are delighted and honoured to have him attend our annual conference.”
