Support for entrepreneurial spirit
10 November 2014
Rockwell Automation will be headline sponsor at the inaugural British Industrial Entrepreneurship Summit which takes place on 19th November during Global Entrepreneurship Week 2014. The summit brings together some of the leading organisations with a stake in helping to grow UK Industry.
Other companies from the entrepreneurial-end of the engineering and manufacturing spectrum (Pickering Test and Bright Energy Solutions) have joined in to review, plan and create a roadmap for modern industrial entrepreneurs to also realise their own dreams.
Mark Daniels, market development manager EMEA of Rockwell Automation said, "We are proud to support the inaugural British Industrial Entrepreneurship Summit and be part of a very active programme to highlight the importance of collaboration between global business and entrepreneurs that can help an enterprise to flourish as it aspires for ‘best in class’ status”.
The Summit will also present the findings of research from research-based global performance-management consulting company Gallup, and Attitudes to UK Industry, which will explore the motivations and needs of the entrepreneur and attitudes of the general public to the skills, technology needs and potential of growing UK industrial entrepreneurship and manufacturing.
BIES 2014 will also be a launch-pad for continued representation of the interests of industrial entrepreneurship development through the formation of a Think Tank. The Think Tank will be made up of contributors from participating enterprises who will bring their considerable knowledge and influence to raising the profile and expanding the opportunities for entrepreneurs and SMEs in the industrial sector through a variety of outputs throughout the year.
Keynote speaker from EEF - The Manufacturers’ Organisation, Lee Hopley, is pleased to be involved in the new event: "The EEF is fully committed to representing the interests and development of UK manufacturers and this event is one of many ways we are working to raise awareness of the growing potential for UK economic rebalancing. We’re delighted to be involved and believe BIES will become an important voice for entrepreneurs in the UK industrial sector.”
BIES 2014 will be held at The London Capital Club on the 19th of November. For more information or to get involved, visit www.bies2014.com
