Warren East CBE, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce will deliver a lecture as part of the Bristol Distinguished Address Series entitled “How can the UK be a natural home for global engineering and technology champions?”
Engineering – taming science and nature for the benefit of society – takes effort and investment, so excellent engineering makes business sense, as this can generate the funds for that investment. There is a perception that the UK has lost its way in the face of large scale competition from Asia and the US over recent decades, but now is an exciting time for engineering and technology. New technologies are broadening the scope of what we can do and creating new opportunities. A potential levelling of the playing field presents a great opportunity for UK (and European) Engineering and Technology businesses to reassert themselves on a global stage.
