The 4th Annual Global Lean Six Sigma & Business Improvement Summit and Industry Awards 2009  was outstanding.  It was my pleasure both to participate and attend.  I compliment both Claire and you and, of course, Vijay, on what can only be classified as a first class event. The pleasure in meeting you was mine and I look forward to future interaction.

I have found the congresss to be among the best I've attended in my 30+ years. The speakers are professional; the presentations are informative and no sales attempts as I've seen in other settings.

VP Performance/Process Improvement , Universal Health Services

These congresss are simply the best, and there really are no others even close. I have attended almost every year. The speakers are top shelf, there is great opportunity to make new contacts, and the event organization is wonderful. 

VP, Quality , Saint Vincent Health System

You provide the most in-depth conferences that I have ever been to.

VP - IP Capture Quality, US Bank

Pre-summit workshops were very practical, tool-based, and I will certainly leverage.  The summit had powerful key note speakers, experienced practitioners sharing their learnings and best practices.  The awards ceremony event and dinner was very well done - pace was good, dinner was lovely, atmosphere was celebratory.  Evening drinks events where we could spend more time networking.  I was not able to stay for the post-summit workshops although I heard good things from 2 who did stay behind.  As a speaker I also found the experience to be very rewarding.  Your team was very organized from requesting the bio, updating the website, keeping me apprised via emails, etc.  Thank you for the experience.  I hope you will continue to reach out to us for other events.

 

Co-Head, Process Excellence - Retail Deployments, Lean Six Sigma Centre of Excellence and Governance , RBC Royal Bank

Overall the summit was excellent, and I especially enjoyed, and had some good new learnings from a couple of the keynote speakers (Al Switzler and Norman Bodek) Good mix of topics on the panel breakout discussions.

Marketing & Sales Director, National Republic Bank of Chicago

 

I have been attending WCBF conferences for 8 years, particularly those on Lean Six Sigma in Healthcare. These conferences are simply the best LSS conferences in healthcare, and there really are no others even close. I have attended almost every year. The speakers are top shelf, there is great opportunity to make new contacts, and the event organization is wonderful. Recently, I was asked by WCBF to chair the conference, so I was able to see deeper behind the scenes, and I know what great work is being done to produce these conferences. Given this exceptional product, I would highly recommend Vijay as the leader of this organization.  
 

 

Vice President, Quality, Saint Vincent Health System

Over the last 10 years I have attended and spoken at many WCBF conferences around Lean Six Sigma in Healthcare. I have found the conferences to be among the best I've attended in my 30+ years in Healthcare. The speakers are professional, the presentations are informative and not sales attempts as I've seen in other settings and the staff of WCBF has always been very receptive in solving any problems that were experienced. I recommend these conferences without hesitation to my colleagues in Healthcare. 

VP Performance/Process Improvement, Universal Health Services

Diverse, excellent agenda of topics delivered by actual practitioners of Lean Sigma. Good representation of multiple healthcare organization models.

It was an honor for Avis Budget Group to win Best Organizational Achievement in Lean Enterprise Improvement from the WCBF in the first year of our Lean Six Sigma deployment.  The award process was thorough and it gave Avis Budget Group a tremendous platform to demonstrate the success our young Performance Excellence deployment has achieved.  The $40 million of verifiable hard-dollar savings ABG’s Performance Excellence team was able to achieve in its first year was a key deliverable of the company’s annual strategic plan.

Performance Excellence Deployment Leader, Avis Budget Group

It has been an honor to accept the award for Best Achievement of Organizational Business Improvement in Healthcare this year.  The WCBF award has allowed SSFHS to increase the credibility of its Lean Six Sigma Program within its own system and in the communities it serves.  The award shows our customers and competitors that we are committed to excel and progressing steadily as we improve the quality of care for our patients.
