Robert, or better known as Bob, Dale has a long history of bringing young people into the graphic arts industry. His first initiative was in the late nineties when he launched the industry insights program, which was designed to show school students potential career opportunities in the graphic arts.

A few years later, Dale helped launch the Eva’s Phoenix print training program for at-risk youth. In addition, Dale was a part-time faculty member in the Graphic Communications Management program at Ryerson University for 15 years. Earlier this year, Dale launched Print Wisdom, a career mentoring initiative for Ryerson University students. Print Wisdom connects seasoned professionals in the graphic arts industry with students in the graphic communications Management program at Ryerson university. The program aims to smoothen the transitions from university to workplace.

Bob also serves as a Trustee with the Canadian Printing Industries Scholarship Trust Fund.

“The mission of Canadian Print Scholarships is to attract the brightest and best students available to the graphic communications industry by providing financial assistance to enroll and continue in a post-secondary management or technical program at an approved institution.”
