    Hello everyone, I wanted to share an event taking place next week on 23rd/24th May that may be of interest.

    Hello Everyone, This week (14-18th May) is Mental Health Awareness Week, with a focus on stress.

Within EEF we have a Wellbeing Champion placed in each location to organise activities to educate staff about ways they can have an impact on their own health and wellbeing. I am the Wellbeing Champion in our...

    Hello everyone, As you know we are passionate about showcasing the fantastic work of UK manufacturers on the EEF Network! While Chinese made products dominate our high street, there is still a strong consumer demand for products made in the UK, with British brands such as Burberry and Barbour performing very well. I wanted to share a video showcasing David Nieper. For over 55 years, this Derbyshire-based business had continued to grow its customer base and reputation for being a leader in British-made clothing for women. The brand oversees its product range from design through to...

    Hello Everyone, I just wanted to share something awesome that I spotted online that was showcased at the annual South By South West (SXSW) conference that took place earlier this month.

I would love to go one day :) Robotics and AI were key topics under discussion throughout the event. This article here highlights some of the best talks at the conference. But I wanted to share this really cool robotic orchestra, where the robots play...

    Thanks Jim Davison looks like it was a great meeting and you all enjoyed making bath bombs! For anyone that has not visited the Lush factory, I wanted to share this brilliant video from Business Insider that shows how the products are made. In busy periods the factory can make up to 100,000 items a day and employs nearly a 1000 people! Watch the video below
