The Digital Future of Manufacturing in the Tees Valley – Breakfast Event with Make UK

About this Event

Are you a business leader, manager or decision maker working in the Manufacturing industry? Are you interested in finding out how embracing a digital culture could help you overcome key business challenges and have a positive impact on your profit margins and competitiveness, both now and in the future? What impact will it have on you, your teams and customers?

At this insightful event delivered by DigitalCity in partnership with Make UK, you will hear from Mark Roddy (Francis Brown), Sharon Lane (Tees Components) and Paul Drake (Sapere Software) on how DigitalCity support has helped to accelerate digital transformation in two long established Tees Valley-based businesses.

We will also highlight how our fully funded project could support your business to become more productive and more profitable.

Make UK champions and celebrates all UK manufacturers, and is a powerful voice at local, national and international level for all companies from small to large in the manufacturing and engineering sector. The organisation UK creates the most supportive environment for UK manufacturing growth and success, and we’re delighted to welcome Paul Byard (Future Proof Performance Director, Make UK) who will discuss the emerging challenges for the sector and how Make UK is helping manufacturers to improve business performance and sustainability through innovation and collaboration.
