Cotswold Life hosts Business & Professional Manufacturing Lunch

Cotswold Lifes Business Editor Nicky Godding hosted our first Business and Professional Life Manufacturing lunch at the Hatherley Manor Hotel. The lunch was attended by some of the regions top manufacturing companies and guests enjoyed a drinks reception followed by a superb three-course lunch.

The event was a great opportunity to meet some new people and discuss the mood of manufacturing across the region. With local manufacturing being the lifeblood of the local economy it was great to have so many of the regions major manufacturers senior business leaders attend. We were also joined by our two speakers from the MAS (Manufacturing Advisory Service) and also SEMTA, the Sector Skills Council for Science, Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies.
