Philip Barlow, FISPE, was inaugurated as the new ISPE President via an ISPE Web-Ex meeting, just prior to the Institute’s 41st AGM, in the height of the pandemic and national lockdown, back in October 2020.
The plan was to hand the Institute chain of office to Philip at the next ISPE seminar, but nobody thought it would be another year or more before this took place! Unfortunately, when it did eventually take place, Philip was unable to be present at the Institute’s 124th One-Day Seminar, in November 2021, the first ISPE Seminar since November 2019, so during SPATEX 2022, an impromptu inauguration ceremony was organised, with ISPE Past-President, Colin Day, FISPE, being on the ISPE stand to present the chain of office to Philip, some 15 months later than planned.
Colin congratulated Philip and everyone wished him well for the remaining eight months of his term as Institute President.
