I would like to use this, my first blog as Chief Executive Officer at Industry Forum to firstly extend a thank you to all Industry Forum’s customers and employees for the warm welcome I have received as I embark on my new role. This is somewhat a strange time to be taking the helm, but I am immensely proud to be joining Industry Forum. I look forward to building on the brilliant work of my predecessor, Dr. Chris Owen as well as the passionate and expert team, who over the last 24 years have provided extensive support to manufacturers across the globe.

Of course, this is a testing time for business, but I believe that Industry Forum is particularly well placed to deliver even greater assistance and competitiveness improvement support to the many world-class engineering-led industries, both in the UK and internationally. I am relishing the challenges ahead.

My message to you, our customers new and old, is clear; Industry Forum is very much open for business. We’ve invested heavily in our ability to provide support to you via the very best virtual and web-based platforms. I would also like to assure you that you can expect the same high-quality services, training and support for which we are industry renowned via these new methods of delivery. Here you will find a full list of the services, training and consultancy available to you to support in the journey to meeting the challenges ahead of you, head on.

Finally, I would like to assure you that my door is always open. If you have any comments or suggestions regarding your experiences with Industry Forum or would like to discuss how my team and I can support you, please do not hesitate to get in touch with myself via the comms team.
