His recent work has focused on how to sustain this change.

The conference will also welcome Mark Baker, Director of Global Partnerships at Executive Education Programs: Shingo Institute. Mark will provide delegates with an interesting keynote on the Shingo Prize, Global Operational Excellence Model.
