Bespoke international speakers to address 2015 Manufacturing Indaba

The Manufacturing Indaba 2015 is pleased to confirm attendance of three leading international manufacturing experts who will address delegates on the 30th June at Emperors Palace, Ekurhuleni.

  • Richard Sellschop from McKinsey & Company (USA),
  • Maurizio Gattiglio from Prima Industrie S.p.A. and Chairman of the European Factories of the Future Research Association (Italy), and
  • Dr. Charles Wessner from Georgetown University (USA).

This is a not-to-be missed opportunity for role players in the public and private sectors to hear their tailor-made addresses and insights on the state of South Africa’s manufacturing sector and the country’s re-industrialisation efforts within the context of prevailing global megatrends.

Participation by the three international manufacturing experts is made possible through support from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) as part of a three-year partnership agreement recently concluded between the DST and the Manufacturing Indaba.

The speakers’ topics are as follows:

  • Richard Sellschop: Re-industrialising South Africa: Next-shoring - a New Perspective on Global Manufacturing.
  • Maurizio Gattiglio: Global Megatrends and Factories of the Future: Will South African Manufacturing be left behind?
  • Charles Wessner: Crossing the ‘Valley of Death’: Is the USA’s Small Business Innovation Research Program the Answer for SME Development in SA?
