AME International Conference 2017 - Association for Manufacturing Excellence

2,000 0

Overview

Event Overview:

The AME International Conference is the largest lean conference in the world. Learning from the insights of world-class, highly successful practitioners who have been there and done that, you are provided with a trusted source of knowledge that you can rely on to confidently make the changes needed to accelerate growth. The leaner processes are and the more engaged people are, the more productive you become and the greater your bottom-line success will be.

Attendee Information:

Five reasons to attend

1. Practitioner-to-practitioner learning. 

What a difference a day makes when you're hearing other practitioners who have endured the same challenges of putting change into action as you have. 

2. A trusted source for lean knowledge. 

AME is a not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization. Our sole purpose is to provide a solid, jam-packed, practical and reliable source of lean learning.

3. Networking around best practice. 

Building a social network of like-minded people is a key part of the lean journey. Enjoy the long-term rewards gained by expanding your lean learning family.

4. Accelerated lean-learning experience. 

AME conferences provide a compressed experience, jam-packed with so much people centric, lean learning that you will be hard-pressed to absorb it all. 

5. Borrow with pride. 

You learn how innovative yet practical thinking can transform complex challenges. Great lessons learned you can immediately apply to your situation.

Keynote Speakers

Daniel Gilbert

Professor

Finding happiness - you can't always trust your mother!

Most of us think we know what would make us happy and that our only problem is getting it. But research in psychology, economics and neuroscience shows that people are not very good at predicting what will make them happy, how happy it will make them and how long that happiness will last. Is the problem that we can't really imagine what our futures will hold?

Professor Daniel Gilbert will explain why, when it comes to finding happiness, we can't always trust our imaginations - or our mothers.

Benjamin Zander

Conductor of The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra

Experiencing the art of possibility

 

Benjamin Zander is the conductor of The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and a guest conductor around the world. With London's famed Philharmonia Orchestra he is recording the complete cycle of Mahler symphonies, recordings that have been received with extraordinary critical acclaim both for the performance and Zander's now famous full-length disc explaining the music for the lay listener. Their recordings of Mahler 9th and Bruckner's 5th Symphony were nominated for Grammys for Best Orchestral Performance. Their latest recording, Mahler's 2nd Symphony, was released last year, and nominated for the Grammy for Best Surround Sound Record.

In 1967, Zander joined the faculty at New England Conservatory, where he taught an interpretation class, conducted the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra, and conducted the conservatory orchestras. For 30 years he was the Artistic Director of the joint program between New England Conservatory's Preparatory School and The Walnut Hill School for the Performing Arts in Natick, Massachusetts. He was awarded Faculty Emeritus status at NEC in 2012.

Zander is one of the most sought after speakers in the world. He gave the opening keynote address at the World Economic Forum in Davos, where on another occasion he was awarded the Crystal award for "outstanding contributions in the Arts and international relations." In 2002, he was awarded the "Caring Citizen of the Humanities" award by the International Council for Caring Communities at the United Nations.

In honor of his 70th birthday, and 45 years of teaching, Zander was recently awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the New England Conservatory. His partner, Rosamund Zander, and he have collaborated on a best-selling book, "The Art of Possibility," which has been translated into fifteen languages.

Margarette Purvis

How Toyota helped improve operations at Food Bank For New York City

 

Margarette Purvis leads Food Bank For New York City, one of the country’s most robust food banks having served over 1 billion pounds directly to New Yorkers in need. She leads and oversees the strategic vision for all of Food Bank’s operations, philanthropy and programming, including the organization's citywide food distribution system and member network of over 1,000 charities and schools. Purvis was selected by Governor Andrew Cuomo to chair the New York State Anti-Hunger Task Force, where she led the development of recommendations for better coordination of hunger relief services and policy that have been endorsed by the Governor in the 2016 State of the State policy proposals. Purvis has also been appointed by Mayor Bill de Blasio to advisory boards for the New York City Children's Cabinet and Community Schools. She was recognized as a "Woman of Influence" by the New York Business Journal and named NonProfit Times’ 2014 Power and Influence Top 50, a national list of leaders in the nonprofit sector.

Prior to becoming Food Bank President and CEO in 2011, Purvis was CEO and principal of PCG Services, an Atlanta-based firm. PCG developed and implemented social and philanthropic programming and branding strategies for businesses, notables, nonprofits and government agencies. She was previously vice president of National Programming at Points of Light Foundation, leading the launch and implementation of its multimillion dollar programs and civic engagement units while overseeing large-scale disaster initiatives in response to Hurricane Katrina. Prior to that, she served her first term at Food Bank as the organization’s vice president of Programs and Services, where she developed national award-winning programs, including the Education Institute and Kids Cafés. Ms. Purvis’ leadership also includes director and management level positions with our country’s oldest HIV/AIDS program (Bailey’s House) and government programs including USDA’s Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and City of New York’s HRA.

Purvis is an alumna of Dillard University where she studied Urban Studies and Public Policy. She also studied Nonprofit Management in the BA/MS program at the Graduate School of Management and Urban Policy at The New School. She is a board member of the James Beard Foundation and a proud member of Links, Incorporated and Women's Forum of New York.
