The Industrial Talk podcast

Where Industrial Leaders Come to Talk!

Industrial Talk is about Celebrating the Human Power of Industry! We discuss the future and why we do what we do. We talk to the trailblazers, “outside-the-box” thinkers who impact not just present-day industry processes, but instead map out the future with unique vision and extraordinary courage in order to change the world. We also travel the globe to interview innovators in industry, from petro-chemical manufacturing & oilfield site visits to leaders in education and training.

Scott undersands that manufacturing has moved into the 21st Century and that the same old same old won't work if you want to grow. He cuts right to the essence of the problem...and he's pretty funny to boot! The podcast is fun to listen to and it was fun to be a guest. Have a listen!
