Future Manufacturing Dinner at the National Space Centre

Minimising your risk to maximise your opportunities - exploring the future challenges facing manufacturers.

Join EEF at the National Space Centre for an evening of food, drinks and conversation with experts from the manufacturing sector.

Brought to you by the RSM in collaboration with EEF, and chaired by our Regional Director, Charlotte Horobin, this is an opportunity for local manufacturers to join discussions about a future ready strategy with specialists in talent management, technology/cyber risk and taxation.

The evening will start at 6:30pm with welcome drinks and the opportunity to network with fellow manufacturing leaders. We will then proceed with a 25 minute, 360 degrees cinema experience in the National Space Centre’s planetarium, followed by a three-course meal and some thought-provoking presentations. We will conclude with further opportunities to network and a chance to explore the space centre exhibition.

Why attend?

Manufacturers need to transform their businesses to realise the opportunities and threats of the digital revolution, a five-generation work force and changes to direct and indirect taxation. This dinner providers an opportunity to:

  • Learn how disruption to IT services and cyber-attacks can have catastrophic results and the options available for prevention. You will hear from cyber specialists and a local manufacturer detailing their response to the ever-present cyber threat.
  • Understand how societal shifts, digital technologies and tightening regulations are changing expectations about how, when and where people work. In this new era, outdated practices around recruitment, people management and workforce structures will leave your organisation exposed. Are you prepared for this?
  • Explore the opportunities for significant cash savings by taking advantage of taxation reliefs and forward-thinking tax planning.
