Data, Decarbonisation & Diversity of thought

Mike Hulme, Director of Alstom and Chair of Northern Rail Industry Leaders, joins us in the studio for our second RTM podcast, giving us exclusive insight into the rail supply chain and why rail is starting to become more cutting-edge.

With our hosts Emily Rodgers and Matt Roberts, the conversation covers everything from cricket to claustrophobia, Pendelino to Portillo and more.

Digitalisation, smart ticketing, and the three biggest things threatening the rail industry are all covered in this light-hearted sit down with one of the most important people in rail.

Hulme goes into detail on why SME’s play a huge role in the rail industry and how companies can get in front of industry giants like Alstom.

If you’re looking to make your mark in the rail industry, you’re in the right place. Mike has all the experience and is willing to share it with us all on this podcast.

Our guest has been there for some of the most important projects in recent rail history and knows first-hand about Northern Powerhouse Rail and HS2’s role in the UK economy.

Young people thinking about a career in rail shouldn’t miss out on this one, or maybe you’re in the industry already and want to further expand your knowledge before taking your next step.

Think you can beat an industry leader in a railway quiz? Play along with him and see if you’ve got what it takes.

Find out who Mike would have at his TCR table and his favourite thing about working in rail on this second episode of the #WeAreRTM podcast.

To quote Mike “we have the tools in the box, we just have to find the commercial way to make it happen” That’s where you come in.
