Event | Join our CEO at Symetri’s Future of British Manufacturing events

Future of British Manufacturing banner

As a partner of Symetri, Atlas Cloud’s CEO Pete Watson will be a key speaker at the Future of British Manufacturing events over the summer. The events aim to provide SMEs and large companies who specialise in architecture, engineering, and construction with the means to take their office wherever they go using the cloud.

The manufacturing sector is responsible for 20% of global innovation and employs 1 in 8 of the total global workforce. With these statistics, it is crucial that the industry implements technology that meets the consumer and employee demands to allow for a more efficient workforce.

Pete will be talking about the productivity and efficiency gains of the digital workplace, specifically how bringing new tools and centralised streamed data is driving improved performance across the shop floor.  He will touch on real-time information, scalable solutions and centralised information across multiple sites with operational risk and security managed and governed in the cloud. He will also use this time to share stories of how companies of all sizes are moving from surviving to thriving with leaps in productivity.

Some of the other key speakers at the event will be:

  • Mr Asif Moghal, Manufacturing Industry Manager at Autodesk
  • Dr. Peter Colman, Partner – Commercial Strategy & Pricing specialist at Simon-Kucher & Partners
  • Philippa Oldham, Head of Transport and Manufacturing – Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

Attending a regional Future of British Manufacturing event is the next step to a deeper understanding of the trends which are shaping the design and manufacturing industry. There are 3 locations and dates to attend:

  • Rotherham, 24th May
  • Aberdeen, 6th June
  • Newcastle, 12th July

As we enter a new industrial era, British manufacturing has an opportunity to place itself at the centre of this disruption and once again become a driving force in this 4th industrial revolution. But the traditional approaches to competitive advantage are no longer enough, particularly for SME’s. That’s why we’re delighted to be launching the Future of British Manufacturing initiative together with our key industry partners who all share this passion for manufacturing. It’s a hands-on approach to enabling British Design and Manufacturing companies to respond to the challenges of things like Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things. Our objective is to enable British Manufacturers to Design, Make and Sell Great British Products everywhere through a truly agile product innovation platform that increases productivity, innovation and delivers what we like to think of as repetitive advantage.
