Businesses across the North West are invited to join us for the Insider "Made In Lancashire" Breakfast at our HQ in Burnley College on Thursday 28th August.
The manufacturing industry in Lancashire
is once again becoming a stronghold for the British economy. Some pockets of Lancashire, such as the Pendle area, employ nearly 22% of the country's manufacturing workforce - that's a huge step in a positive direction for UK manufacturing.
The Insider "Made In Lancashire" Breakfast event takes place at Themis HQ at Burnley College, Princess Way, Burnley and will help to give a snapshot of the current successes of the manufacturing industry and also what the future has in store, with regards to improvements, developments, growth and employment.
Key issues being discussed on the morning will be points directly affecting the Lancashire manufacturing industry, such as energy costs, shale gas extraction or "fracking", tackling the skills gap in manufacturing and engineering (including discussions on inclusion and equality in employment such as women in engineering), building and maintaining a strong logistics sector and also discussions on exporting and growth.
Should I attend?
If you're a local or regional manufacturer
, we'd love you to come to the Insider "Made In Lancashire" Breakfast, because everything we'll be discussing needs your involvement. Nobody knows what the industry is like on the front line better than you do.
Professionals with an interest or link to the manufacturing sector
are also invited to come along - if this is your area of expertise your opinions on the issues we'll be discussing will be very important for a greater understanding of the manufacturing industry's needs as a whole.
Related public sector, associations and local authority representatives
will also bring a different level of understanding to the debates - if you work for a local authority, for example, your views on shale gas extraction, equality in employment or tackling the skills gap will help to inform discussions going ahead, and offer another dimension to the conversation.
The Insider "Made In Lancashire" Breakfast will give attendees the opportunity to learn more about the points mentioned, as well as network with manufacturing experts from across Lancashire. The attendance list already includes suppliers, manufacturers, logistics professionals and members of local government which will all lead to some interesting and involved discussions.
To register your attendance, please book your place now to avoid disappointment.
