Event description

Description


The Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce is delighted to be hosting their first Manufacturing Showcase event which will take place on Tuesday 21st November, 8.30am – 12.15pm at K.I.T.S, Brighouse.

This half day event is dedicated to helping manufacturing and engineering businesses to meet, learn and grow.

With keynote speakers and various networking breaks, attending Manufacturing Showcase is a great opportunity to share best practice, find out what support is available, learn from sector experts and form new partnerships.

Martin Hathaway, managing director of the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce said: “We often hear from members that there is little support out there for manufacturers, but actually there is probably more than you think. By bringing together sector experts and key organisations, this event aims to showcase what support manufacturers and engineering businesses can tap in to.”

Seminar 1 - Marketing for Manufacturers – a Culture Clash
Dave Pannell, CIM Manufacturing Ambassador

Many manufacturing companies still rely on pre-Internet strategies to find new business, but with industrial buyers becoming unwilling to engage with a manufacturer until later on in their decision-making process, traditional opportunities to directly ‘sell’ have become limited. The Chartered Institute of Marketing’s Manufacturing Ambassador Dave Pannell addresses the culture clash between marketing and manufacturing, and looks at the new marketing mix that manufacturing companies should embrace.

Seminar 2 - Exporting your Goods

Mark Robson, Regional Director for the Department for International Trade Yorkshire and the Humber, will explain how to find new opportunities and selling profitably overseas.

Seminar 4 - Manufacturing case study - How James Heal built a business culture for high growth

Amanda Mclaren, MD at James Heal

James Heal is a global market leader, exporting textile testing equipment worldwide from their factory in Halifax. Under the leadership of their Managing Director Amanda McLaren, James Heal knew they needed to change the culture of the company if they were going to take growth to the next level. In this presentation, Amanda will explain how James Heal successfully developed a culture of growth to increase not just turnover, but profit – and the methods you can use to do the same in your manufacturing business.
