Speakers:



Kevin Oakes oversaw the growth of overseas sales at world-renowned Stoke-on-Trent-based tableware manufacturer Steelite, resulting in exports making up almost 90 per cent of its £102m turnover. In 2016, he bought Royal Crown Derby with a plan to double turnover over five years to £10m, driven by exports.

Oakes, who is also president of the British Ceramic Confederation and a Stoke and Staffordshire LEP board member, has been working closely with government on a deal for the ceramic sector, to unlock the potential of the industry. Ceramics and the application of ceramic technology requires long term capital investment to remain competitive in world markets
