Norwich, Norfolk, United Kingdom, 2009/10/27 - Plus, Apple iPhone, Twitter, Amazon Kindle and others pitted against technology rivals, the best white wines from around the world and more in the November issue of Exec Digital, the definitive magazine for business and luxury lifestyle.
Dick Olver, the Chairman of defense and aerospace leader BAE Systems and one of the world’s most powerful figures in the defense industry, sat down with Exec Digital magazine to discuss innovation, the UK economy and education. While BAE’s latest inventions were quite impressive – from little insects that can film and record what they see in a room to seemingly ordinary paint that can actually record conversations – Exec Digital also explored more weighty issues. Olver speaks candidly about the important role manufacturing plays in the UK economy, how BAE is working on high end security systems to prevent catastrophic events like 9/11 and convincing school children that a career in engineering can actually be fun.
On the current state of the economy, Olver tells Exec Digital, “Every cloud has a silver lining and actually the silver lining in this situation is that suddenly everybody is realising there is a sector in this economy which, as it happens, is about 50% larger than the financial services industry at its peak…That sector is called manufacturing.”
The proof is in the pudding: Apple iPhone, Nintendo Wii, Research and Motion, Garmin, Amazon Kindle and Twitter have the value, growth and loyal customer base to defeat the competition in Exec Digital’s very own technology race. Companies that didn’t make the winner’s circle include Sony, Palm Pre, AOL, Zune HD, Vodafone and O2, and AT&T. Exec Digital based its criteria on customer surveys, prestigious awards, sales, industry analysis, and market value.
