Leveraging my experience as a manufacturing magazine editor and my network in industry, with partners and alone I produce events from conferences and mini-summits to round tables, dinner debates and factory visits.

I have a strong track record in building events for the manufacturing and technology industry. This covers curating programmes, securing high calibre speakers and venues, acquiring delegates, moderating debates, writing up reports, researching and leading factory tours. I have done this at The Manufacturer magazine and independently since 2013.


Stirling Media publishes the UK Manufacturing Review and Outlook, a 250-page book covering many of the highlights of 12-months in industry and forecasts, from manufacturers and experts, on what will happen next year in: Sectors, Technologies, Themes like Exports, Policy and Sustainability, and Regions.

The Review – or UKMR – also features up to 40 “Trailblazer” companies, whose common feature is their success and achievement in 2019 / the current year.

UKMR is the only large book providing this range and depth of coverage of manufacturing in print, annually.
