There’s plenty of discussion about the future of manufacturing and the digital factory, but what does it mean for companies now and how should manufacturers be developing leadership skills to implement the factory of the future?

As part of an exciting new series of one-day events from Manufacturing Management magazine, Festo is sponsoring the first Leadership Day on the 20th March at JLR's Castle Bromwich site. The event brings together CEOs, directors, heads of operations, and manufacturing managers in an interactive conference format so you can all develop the skills, confidence and knowledge to positively harness the huge potential of digital manufacturing.

Festo are proud to be supporting this event designed to develop and prepare leaders in UK manufacturing. Delivered in a unique, one-day format, we are working with other key partners that share our vision of preparing leaders for the digital manufacturing age.

• Learn: how manufacturers could see significant productivity gains by adopting the latest technologies in the opening keynote delivered by technology experts Chris Reeves and Dean Smith of Cisco will be kick-starting a packed agenda of best-practice learning: they will share the important findings of the recent Made Smarter Review and explore how manufacturers stand to see significant productivity gains from adopting future technologies.

• Do: a series of hands-on workshops from leading technology and solution providers, Festo, Infor, Kronos and Siemens, focused on the challenges and opportunities that will arise from Industry 4.0

• See: first-hand how a highly automated manufacturing process has enabled Jaguar Land Rover to upskill many of its workers with a behind-the-scenes tour of its iconic Castle Bromwich site. You will see how automation has enabled large-scale production growth for their car manufacturing operations. This is also your chance to acquire new ideas and benchmark your own business against a world-class organisation.

Join us at this first Leadership Day, on the 20th March, and you will discover the skills, confidence and knowledge to implement new technologies and move towards the smart factory of the future. Are you and your team ready for the dawn of automation?
