The Manufacturer Podcast: How does going digital delight your customers? Ask Brian Holliday

Posted on 4 Jun 2019 by Jonny Williamson

Nick Peters talks to Brian Holliday, MD of Siemens Digital Industries in the UK, about how he and his team harnessed the power of digital manufacturing technologies to develop world- and competition-beating products.

He also talks about struggling with German and technology at O Level (German!), why he decided against university, but found redemption – and a career – in an apprenticeship and a fascination with how computers could change industry.

Today Brian is at the forefront of the campaign to persuade UK manufacturers of the game changing benefits of deploying digital technologies. Given he has more than “been there, done that”, he is worth listening to!
