What is the Manufacturers Alliance? 

The Manufacturers’ Alliance launched in 2013 and consists of groups of leaders from the UK manufacturing community that meet on a monthly basis to help each other achieve their personal and business ambitions. For some, this is a continuous personal development journey, others it is managing a high growth business. Whatever the reason for joining an Alliance group, the outcome will benefit members and the growth of manufacturing in the UK.

Our experienced Chair People not only facilitate the meetings but take an active interest in the growth of the UK manufacturing industry. They share your passion for the ‘made in the UK brand’ and very much want to see success in the room.

The Manufacturing Alliance model is not a new concept. Mastermind type groups have been in operation for decades. Many famous people in manufacturing, such as Henry Ford and Andrew Carnegie have utilised this type of group working on their own journey to success. For those of you that have read ‘Think and Grow Rich’ you will fully understand the concept.

Although the model is not a new concept, our approach is unique. We are the only peer groups operating in the UK with a dedicated focus on the manufacturing industry and its leaders. We also develop a culture within our groups that has led to sharing at a very deep level – a level that will transform your thinking and your business.

FACT: Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, first defined this type of group as a mastermind and as a “coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.” He went so far as to say there was a mystical connection created when a mastermind group was formed. He said: “No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.” In other words, your ability to create things in the world is increased by having that invisible “third mind” of the mastermind group.
