Manufacturing at Heart is a weekly podcast which brings together manufacturing stories from across Europe. The show interviews CEOs, Ops People, Innovators, Academics and Journalists alike who all have one thing in common – they have Manufacturing at Heart!

I was delighted to be interviewed by Mark Redgrove for the podcast and be able to tell the story of why I founded Make it British.

In the interview I talk about my previous career as a designer and buyer for well known brands, and the tipping point that made me decide to give up my jet-setting job as a buyer and dedicate myself to supporting UK manufacturers.

We also cover what the advantages are of making in the UK versus overseas, and what I see as the potential for growth in British textile manufacturing.

I also explain why I decided to set up a trade show for UK manufacturers, and the challenges I faced in doing this having known nothing about running events when I founded the show!

If you’re currently in a corporate career and thinking that it’s time to do something different, but scared about taking the leap, then I hope some of what I say in the interview will help inspire you.

And if you are looking for manufacturers and want to make product in Britain, or want to network with businesses that are making in the UK, then why not join 5,000 others just like you and come to the show? More details here www.meetthemanufacturer.co.uk
