Learn lessons from manufacturing on how to empower people across teams to lead and innovate

Peak Scientific is a leading innovator in the design, manufacture and support of high performance gas generators for analytical laboratories. Head-quartered in Glasgow, Peak Scientific has a significant local presence on every continent with 20 overseas offices and employs more than 650 people worldwide. The first overseas manufacturing facility opened in Shanghai last year.

The event is organised in collaboration between the PrOPEL Hub ( and InterAct (
