You know how hard it is to lead a team to deliver great results within your own manufacturing business. The Manufacturers’ Alliance will be providing access to their platform on 18th July to allow local manufacturers with ambition with the chance to join this peer group. A platform that provides the peace of mind for business leaders that they are making the right decisions for their businesses, and will enable them to scale, develop their management teams, and achieve the personal and business fulfilment they deserve.

If you would like to meet in a manufacturers’ only environment, surrounded by open minded and progressive leaders, that want to make a difference in the world, join us on 18th July at Carpenter Additive in Widnes. The meeting will provide you with an opportunity to test the water for free and learn how a peer group could be something that unlocks the potential in you and your business. A safe space for you to be completely open, and share goals and challenges with other like-minded manufacturing leaders on a similar journey to you.

Over the past 10 years the Manufacturers’ Alliance have supported many owners and senior leaders in the manufacturing sector with break through’s that they never thought possible. Becoming confident and competent leaders that can inspire and engage a team. Running businesses that are achieving results they had only previously dreamed of. Feeling a sense of purpose and fulfilment with the difference their businesses are making in the world.
