The mission of GBMP and its annual northeast Lean conference is to promote and recognize world-class Lean management and operating practices. The 11th Annual Northeast L.E.A.N. Conference will showcase organizations who have not only embraced the technical aspects of operational excellence, but who are also creating a leadership model and favorable work environment that enables floor employees to develop as change agents. This year’s theme is “Putting the Pieces Together.”
We anticipate 700 plus attendees at our 11th annual conference in 2015 in Springfield, MA, mostly from the Northeast United States (comprised of ME, VT, NH, MA, CT, RI, DE, PA, MD, NY and NJ) but also from all around the country and Canada too. Attendees come from large, mid-sized and small organizations from all industry sectors (most notably manufacturing and healthcare) including Raytheon, Biogen Idec, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Liberty Mutual, BASF, Hallmark, Medtronic, DelMonte, The Cleveland Clinic, Shire Pharmaceuticals, and Thermo Fisher Scientific, to name a few.
And because there is so much to learn and so much networking going on, most companies don’t send just one attendee. You can expect Presidents and CEO’s, operations and general managers, Vice Presidents from all departments, Human Resource professionals, purchasing managers and others from all of the functional areas of a company.
Why do they attend this conference? To Talk Lean. Either they’re doing it or they want to do it. They’re just starting out or their implementation has stalled and they need to reenergize. Or, they are years along the journey to becoming shining examples of Operational Excellence in our region and they want to share their stories and keep on learning.
And what do they all have in common? They need information. They need tools. They need good people. They need ideas. They need systems. They need your help, but they just don’t know it yet.
This is quite simply the best opportunity to reach them all year, face-to-face; to inform potential customers about how your product or service will improve their Lean initiative and the performance of their company; but not in a massive trade-show kind-of-way, but rather in an intimate educational conference kind-of-way. There’s a difference, trust us, and they’ll trust you more because you’re there.
