About the lecture


Manufacturing Engineers at Large

Domino Printing Services plc board member, Rachel Hurst received the IET Manufacturing Silver Medal for 2015.

Her exceptional career has shown that vocational manufacturing engineering experience can lead to top-level enterprise-wide responsibilities.

In her lecture, Rachel will demonstrate how evolving relationships between manufacturing and every other part of Domino Printing Services helped to turn this British start-up into a billion-pound global company.

Rachel will discuss how manufacturing engineers work best with other business domains, mentioning pitfalls, top tips and rules of engagement, and explain how such whole enterprise commitment vitally improves value chain productivity, innovation and profit.

Today as never before, astute businesses, not just engineering ones, increasingly encourage this.

She will also explore the implications for manufacturing education and training at all levels: from apprentices to professional engineers; for the smallest of companies as well as the largest; and for public policy. The era of ‘manufacturing engineers at large’ is upon us...
