We want to hear your story. As part of the Top 100 alumni, we are asking all the class of 2022 to record a video of themselves which we will then post on the Top 100 website and share with the rest of the community. Criteria for submitting the video are below, plus the questions we would like answered. However, if you have any further queries please contact Alternatively, submit your video directly to our editorial team:

Length of video: 5-10 minutes
Video quality: Ideally we would request the video be filmed with appropriate recording and audio equipment. Rather than mobile phones or tablets
Format: A mix of the Top 100 member answering the below questions to camera (ideally within their manufacturing environment). If extra footage of the manufacturing process(es) can also be provided this adds extra context to the video.
