We’ve been working in manufacturing and technology for almost 30 years. We’ve lived and breathed the tremendous pace of technological change, and we’ve consistently proved the transformational power of people and technology, working in partnership.

Join us for an event at our HQ in Durham designed to empower those in manufacturing in the realms of innovation, AI, data, and cyber security, hosted by Helen Fawcett, our Sector Principal. Breakfast is provided, of course!

Innovation and AI

Every year the list of technologies that will apparently revolutionise the industry grows - but will it? Efforts to innovate need to be grounded in real-world manufacturing processes and challenges, rather than being led by new technology. What do you need to be thinking about right now if you aim to adopt an emerging technology in the future, and what are the steps you need to take to get there? Let's look at how to identify the small first step we should take in order to complete a large innovation project.

Mastering Data for Manufacturing Excellence

Technology hype is rampant in the manufacturing industry, particularly with the advent of Industry 4.0. While it’s true that leveraging data can provide a competitive edge and help companies stay ahead, many manufacturers remain stuck in pilot purgatory, struggling to capture the full potential of their transformation efforts or deliver a satisfactory return on investment. In this session, we will explore the key elements of a successful data journey and how to avoid getting caught up in the hype.

Cyber Security Resilience in Manufacturing

Insight into the current cyber threat landscape and trends which the manufacturing sector are facing, and five things that all businesses should be considering to start their cyber resilience journey and establish a strong defence baseline.

Explore how collectively, as a manufacturing community, we can harness innovation, AI, data, and cyber security to shape a brilliant future for the industry.
