Technology Partner Recruitment Day

Are you a technology business with a passion to support the growth of UK manufacturing?


We are hosting a Technology Partner Recruitment Day on 8th August 2024 and would like to invite people and businesses that would like to engage with our members… progressive manufacturers with a desire to advance their technology journey that are based in the North of England and Wales.

We are looking to engage with technology providers that have a product or service that will enable small and medium sized manufacturing businesses to innovate and improve their productivity.

Why are we hosting a Technology Partner Recruitment Day?

The Manufacturers’ Alliance supports progressive manufacturing leaders based in the North of England and Wales with their growth ambitions and capability development. We are a supportive platform and community for manufacturers that enables ideas sharing, learning from each other and accelerating growth potential in a safe environment.

On 5th September 2024 we will be launching a new Technology & Innovation focused Peer Group to support intrapreneurs, changemakers and innovators that have a passion for technology and innovation. The leaders inside manufacturing businesses that have a passion for improvement and positive change.

Some of the topics we will be exploring with the new group will be…

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • Robotics
  • Data capture and visualisation
  • Servitisation
  • Automation
  • Energy efficiency
  • Innovation models and practises
  • Design thinking

How the Technology Partner Recruitment Day works

You are being invited to take part in a pitch style meeting to demonstrate your technology and delivery style. This will be a 20 minute presentation that showcases the value you and your business will add to our members.

The day will be facilitated by Gary Sheader and Philippa Glover from the Manufacturers’ Alliance team, who will be there to support you on the day and help you to get the most from the session.

For Speakers that are successful (you and we both feel a mutual alignment), we will include you in our meeting schedule where you will be invited to deliver a 45-90 minute workshop. This will be with a mixed group of technology leaders from a range of small and medium sized manufacturing businesses.

Our ideal outcome from the Technology Partner Recruitment Day

We would like this to become more than just a one-off transaction. We are looking for people and businesses that want to grow with us and become partners with the Manufacturers Alliance moving forwards. People that have a passion for UK manufacturing and supporting technology leaders in becoming more effective in their roles.

People that we can pick the phone up to and chat through technology challenges and ideas. People that are happy to help educate manufacturers before they start to pitch ideas and solutions “at” them.

This is about much than helping technology providers increase sales and sell more stuff to manufacturers. This is about helping us to move the sector forwards together and building something special.

If this sounds like something that resonates with you. Please register to attend the speaker day, and we will look forward to welcoming you.
