Happy to welcome Joel Leonard to the show. Joel is a maintenance evangelist, and a workforce development consultant.
On the show, we discussed the next generation of skilled technicians; what exactly is a maintenance evangelist, and why that work is so important; how we make manufacturing appealing and exciting for people again; the skills gap we are facing; and are we in a skills crisis?
We continue with things we need to do to improve education, workforce training, and where we begin to address the problems; “What we watch is what we become;” SkillTV and it’s purpose; what can manufacturers themselves do to excite the next generation (training and internships); and “We’ve got to get students out of the classroom and into the real world to expose them to what’s possible.”
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
