As in previous years, this year’s Summit will conclude with a discussion forum in which there will be a panel of speakers to address the personalized questions of audience members. This forum will give attendees the opportunity to ask any questions they might have regarding the theme of the Summit, The Spark: Igniting an Excellent Culture.
This year’s discussion panel will include four speakers. The panel members include Scott Becker, CEO of Conemaugh Health System; Dany Paradis, Vice President, Change Management and Supply Chain of Fibrek; Rodger B. Lewis, Executive in Residence of the Saint Vincent McKenna School of Business; and David Adams, Executive Director of KCOE. With the diversity in industry background, this year’s panel promises to bring a wide variety of perspective and experience regarding Operational Excellence and the challenge of cultural change.
Attendees will have several ways to submit questions to the panel prior to the beginning of the forum. If you so wish, you can call KCOE’s office at 724.805.2142 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to submit a question. Additionally, all attendees will have the opportunity the day of the Summit to submit questions they would like to be addressed by the panel. Over the years, we have consistently found the discussion forum to be a great chance for intense learning and meaningful conversation. We hope to see you there and encourage you to brainstorm questions for the discussion panel!
Be sure to check out our video above where David Adams, Executive Director of KCOE, describes the forum discussion with focus on the common “And OE” question.
