It's time for another Engaged in Conversation podcast!. In this episode, Engage's CEO Phil Wedgwood talks to Juergen Maier CBE, Co-Founder of business social platform vocL, Vice Chair of The Northern Powerhouse Partnership, and formerly CEO of Siemens UK.
Juergen is a British-Austrian national and a UK Industrialist. He moved to the UK in 1974 and graduated as an engineer from Nottingham Trent University. Currently he is Chair of the Digital Catapult, Co-Chair of the national Made Smarter manufacturing programme, and Vice-Chair of The Northern Powerhouse Partnership.

He also sits on the Governing Board of Nottingham Trent University and works closely with the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University as a visiting Professor of both.
He is a passionate advocate for a new post-covid politics and economics, which he believes should provide stronger leadership for innovation and technology led ‘frontier industries’ and industrial tech start-ups.
