A Driving Digital Transformation Workshop for Design & Manufacturing

This workshop shifts its attention away from our software offerings, features, and functions. Instead, it emphasises the practical application of digital technologies to enhance product quality, increase sales, and drive greater value. As a result, it is tailored specifically for senior manufacturing executives. As part of the event, participants will receive a guided tour of our Birmingham Technology Centre.

To secure one of the 30 available spots, please register for attendance as soon as possible.

Let’s embark on this transformative journey together.

Meet the Autodesk Speaker

Asif Moghal

Asif studied industrial design at the University of Wales, before starting his professional journey to help entrepreneurs and manufacturers develop and bring to market innovative new products. These ranged from consumer goods to medical devices, to industrial equipment and the occasional perpetual motion machine.

As Autodesk’s Director for Market & Industry Development, he leads a collaborative initiative focused on the digital transformation of the industry and works alongside many inspiring SMEs that you might never have heard of. He also hosts a podcast for industry leaders called The Art of The Impossible featuring leaders from many of these inspirational companies.

He believes that digital transformation doesn’t have to be difficult, that people are the most important aspect of any transformation, and that design is equally as important as manufacturing.  But there’s a lot of hype, jargon and boundaries that need to be challenged along the way, and what industry needs is a clear vision of the future and a clear strategy to enable it.

When Asif isn’t helping manufacturing companies tackle digital challenges, he can be found trekking at high altitudes or tinkering with his campervan.
