What do a pound shop, Liverpool Football Club, call centres, an ethical PR firm, UMIST and a global branding agency have in common?
They were all workplace inspirations for Scouse Neo-Mancunian; Christopher Charlton-Killen, founder and MD of Human.
Human works with manufacturers to improve their productivity by digitising and automating operations. Christopher believes that businesses grow when all of their people can focus on high value activities; the things that cannot and should not be automated: leading, caring and crafting.
Founded in 2011, the business has used agile development to boost the productivity of clients such as Jaguar Land Rover, Marshalls Plc and Swift, the UK's biggest dental laboratory.
- Is automation new?
- Can everyone shift to higher value work?
- Is digital technology a force for good or ill?
- Where should we start?
Christopher suggests that productivity and happiness are linked in both directions and that as business leaders we must play our part in unlocking them - so come along to our next breakfast and find out more!
We will also be offering the first 12 companies to apply the opportunity to exhibit at the event free of charge. Companies can bring along literature, equipment, goodies etc and a pop-up banner stand. If you would like to apply please email: firstname.lastname@example.org - but be quick!
As usual there will be lots of opportunity to network at one of the longest running networking events that Greater Manchester Chamber organises on your behalf. A popular feature in the Stockport business calendar for over 30 years, this is a great vehicle to make new contacts and build your business network over a sit-down breakfast.
Make sure you bring your business cards to put in the hat and you could win the opportunity to give a 60 second pitch at the event .
