MerseySTEM Managing Director speaks as ‘success story’ at IoD North West

MerseySTEM Managing Director Michelle Dow speaks as ‘success story’ at IoD North West: The Secrets of Manufacturing in a Competitive Global Environment

Manufacturing in the UK is in resurgence. Since experiencing one of the worst declines during the last recession, it, along with construction is storming back. It is now important that the manufacturing world invests in the technology, invests in the training and invests in the marketing and design required to elevate our products to become world beaters.

The Institute of Directors: Secrets of Manufacturing in a Competitive Global Environment conference focused on providing details from some of the success stories in British manufacturing along with a vision for the future.

MerseySTEM’s Managing Director Michelle Dow spoke as one of six success stories selected. Her motivational address on Future Skills received positive feedback from the conference delegates and via social media.
