The Glass and Glazing Federation has launched a new industry forum said to offer a safe space for members to discuss current topics, share insights, gather information and solve problems.
The forum is hoped to drive innovation and crowdsource as well as being a platform for shared knowledge, as Chris Beedel, head of advocacy & stakeholder relations, explained: “Our aim is for this forum to become a go to guide for the industry with tips, suggestions, and resolutions to common problems, as well as a place members can simply share experiences. It will act almost as a self-service advice centre with members having access to the resource 24/7.
“Members can drive the content without GGF involvement, so they can interact, offer feedback and critique in a healthy and positive environment, but the GGF will be there to oversee, moderate and engage with members when needed.”
He added that use of the forum would require adherence to a set of rules to ensure it remains a safe and positive space for the benefit of its users.
He continued: “GGF members already enjoy the advantage of regular face-to-face meetings with industry peers, and that will remain an important part of our membership, but the creation of this forum will mean they don’t need to wait for the next meeting to air their views or ask a question.
“We are constantly seeking ways to make our members’ lives easier or better and believe an online forum will be of great value in the current more challenging climate, and beyond.”
