Meet the Speakers: Industry Leaders Sharing Best Practices in 2023

By Made In Group
schedule16th Jan 23

Between now and the start of May, there are 6 Virtual Breakfast Mornings that you can attend with Made in Group, featuring 18 fantastic industry leading speakers.


Here, Made in Group are continuing the commitment of keeping British manufacturers connected - to share best practice, discuss important topics and build connections through networking. 


Virtual Breakfast Mornings are networking and best practice sharing events, exclusively for members of Made in the Midlands and Made in Yorkshire. Attendees have the chance to learn best practice from 3 hosting speakers, followed by a 30-minute round table discussion on relevant topics.


Made in Group is constantly innovating and changing the way it holds events to bring the most value to members, which is why last year the breakfast morning format was streamlined. Now, attendees are able to choose which discussion group they wish to take part in, often focused around the likes of Industry 4.0, People & Skills, Reshoring, Sustsinability, and more.


All talks from Virtual Breakfast Mornings are now also uploaded to Made U.  Made U - short for Made University - is your new home for best practice talks from the manufacturing community and expert masterclasses.
