The Global Director of Manufacturing for Rolls-Royce is coming to Lancaster to answer questions from North West business leaders about productivity within the manufacturing and engineering industry.
On 9 November at 9am, Dr Hamid Mughal, Director of Global Manufacturing at Rolls-Royce will be sharing expertise from his 30-year career in the automotive and aerospace industries when he takes part in a question and answer session about productivity with local businesses at Lancaster House Hotel.
It follows the release of new ONS data this month which showed productivity in the UK fell by 0.1 percent in the second quarter of this year. Figures show the UK remains around 15 percent below average in comparison to productivity levels in other G7 countries.
The event has been arranged as part of ‘Productivity through People’ (PtP) – a support programme designed for North West businesses to address the low levels of productivity seen across the UK since the 2008 economic crash. Leading academics from Lancaster University Management School have teamed up with experts from industrial partners Rolls-Royce, Siemens and BAE Systems to support leaders of small and medium-sized businesses by providing access to some of the latest technology and research.
