About The Engineering Growth podcast

If you are an engineer, and you’re interested in helping your company to grow, then you’ve arrived at the right place! Join us as we meet leaders and influencers from the world of engineering to share experiences and learn from our peers.

Our Goals and Vision

We love helping engineering companies to grow. It’s a simple philosophy and we don’t see the need to complicate it with jargon, or bullshit!

The idea for the podcast is to talk to people that are involved in the engineering sector about how they have overcome challenges, solved problems in their businesses and achieved success themselves, in the hope that it inspires others to do the same.  

We understand there are many facets of engineering, and one person’s widgets are very different from anothers. By concentrating on the human element we hope this cuts through those complexities and provides common sense advice on how to grow your business.   

Our Story

With our collective experience in manufacturing and engineering, the formation of the Engineering Growth podcast was a natural evolution.

In an industrial B2B environment, where the requirements for lead generation, and the sales process, are often very different to many other industries, there is an appetite to share experiences and solutions.

We hope the podcast can shed light on common issues and provide some guidance as to how your engineering business could achieve sustainable growth.
