2019 Colorado Lean Summit Post-Event Summary

93% Overall Satisfaction

Another successful CLN Summit Event! This year we experimented with longer workshop sessions that allowed our 170+ participants the chance to dig deep into specific game-changing topics resulting in 93% overall satisfaction rate. Our incredible workshop facilitators helped to make the event a huge success—thank you! In addition, the Colorado Department of Public Safety (CDPS) provided the perfect space for our needs while serving us a hearty breakfast and lunch. Thank you, CDPS, for your outstanding hospitality. 

Gary Vansuch Granted the First Annual CLN XL Award!

This year was also the debut of our first ever annual CLN XL Award! Gary Vansuch, the deserving winner, accepted the award with a reminder of Theodore Roosevelt’s powerful “Man in the Arena” speech, encouraging all of us to “dare greatly.” 

Every Workshop Received Favorable Remarks

Living and breathing lean for the day, we got to explore topics ranging from leading innovative teams to applying design thinking concepts. With such a great variety of impactful and intriguing topics, it was hard to choose just two. Regardless of the sessions our participants ended up in, every session received favorable remarks regarding the new knowledge and skills that participants gained. Be on the lookout for some of these topics in our 2020 learning series.

Power to Change the Game

We ended the day by celebrating at the Yard House for an appetizer-rich happy hour with over 25 attendees. Attendees enjoyed drinks, food and raffle prizes at the concluding event.

The event was truly a celebration of the world of lean, its practitioners and its power to change the game. This event would not have been possible without the support of our members, our sponsors and our volunteers—thank you once again for your continued support and dedication.
