Sign up for our Manufacturing the Recovery webinars and law firm Freeths have created a new webinar series, Manufacturing the Recovery.

The first, must-attend session will be focused on the engineering and manufacturing sectors, which already faced significant challenges before the huge impact of Covid-19.

Our panel of experts will look forward to how manufacturers can respond to and stay ahead of the global challenges they now face.

They will analyse:

  • how the continued adoption of advanced manufacturing and digital technologies can ensure that UK manufacturing is able to be globally competitive
  • the expected impacts of Covid-19 on the supply chain
  • the new opportunities that could arise as businesses grapple to remain profitable
  • will the focus from Industry 4.0 to Industry 5.0 help businesses increase profitability whilst addressing sustainability and environmental disruption?
  • the role of Government and regional support organisations in directing the industry through industrial strategies and other policy initiatives

Our panelists include:

John Maddison, director of engineering development, Jacobs Critical Mission Solutions International

Prof David Bailey, professor of business economics, Birmingham Business School

James Berry, partner, Freeths
