This In-Person Event is for Your If...

You're super passionate about what you do. You're juggling manufacturing, marketing and selling and it feels totally overwhelming.

You're sick of Zoom calls and online meetings and want face-to-face interaction with real people.

You'd just like one day where you can work on your business, not in it. With like-minded people who feel the same.

Make it British Forum | What will you learn?

What You'll Learn...

This is a forum, not a lecture. It's not just about listening, it's about doing. Bring a notebook and pen. There'll be practical workshops as well, as inspiring speakers.

There'll be plenty of breakouts too. Even if you come knowing no one, you'll leave having made business buddies for life.

Why Attend?

Generate new ideas for growing your business

Connect with other like-minded businesses making in the UK

Learn from your peers and build industry connections

Walk away feeling positive about the opportunities that are ahead for UK manufacturers and British-made brands

Meet Your Host, Kate Hills

Make it British founder and trusted authority on manufacturing in the UK.

I’ve been passionate about UK manufacturing ever since I had my own recycled clothing company and micro factory in the early '90s!

After spending 20 years as a designer and buyer developing products all over the world, I launched Make it British as a way of supporting fashion and homeware brands that want to make locally.

Over the last ten years I've helped 1,000s of businesses, from start-ups to multiple retailers, to find and successfully work with UK manufacturers.

I know the quality and flexibility that making in the UK can bring to any business - and how much more sustainable it is too!
