Kate Hills, Founder of Make it British, will be talking British manufacturing at the following events this September:
Making it in London: Progress in Manufacturing
Wednesday 18th September 2013. [14:45]-15:45pm
Victoria & Albert Museum Sackler Centre, Hochhauser Auditorium
This event, organised by Big Potatoes: The London Manifesto for Innovation, is part of a day of discussion on manufacturing and innovation. The Progress in Manufacturing seminar will discuss how policy makers, government, educators and other organisations can help, or avoid hindering, progress in manufacturing. The debate will be centred around the future of manufacturing in London, asking whether it could be the ‘design workshop of the world’. Kate will be contributing to the conversation relaying her recent discussion with the Government on the issues faced by SMEs that want to manufacture in the capital.
This event is part of The London Design Festival and is supported by The Mayor of London and the Arts Council. For more details, and to book a ticket to the talk, visit the London Design Festival website.
Make it British also has a limited number of guest passes to give away for this event. If you leave a comment below giving the reasons why you would like to attend, we may be able to send you a free ticket or two!
Tuesday 24th September 2013. [1:30]-2:30pm
Fashion SVP is a trade show for near-sourcing manufacturing within the fashion & textiles industry. The topic of Kate’s talk will be ‘British manufacturers – How to make the most of the resource on your doorstep’. She will be discussing the findings of her survey into whether the customer even cares whether their garment has a Made in Britain label, as well as offering advice to those that want to make their collections in the UK.
This is a trade only event. More details are available on the Fashion SVP website.
Apologies if these events are a bit London-ccentric. If anyone would like Kate to talk at other events around the country then please get in touch via her author page.
