Brett Wills is a former plant manager with first-hand experience leading teams in sustainability and continuous improvement. Brett helps organizations across North America profitably accelerate their journey towards sustainability. He is the author of Green Intentions: Creating a Green Value Stream to Compete and Win.

Join Brett at an Embracing Excellence 2018 workshop to learn how organizations are using LEAN and Green processes to achieve significant cost savings while reducing environmental impact and ensuring long-term sustainability. There’s so much talk about Green, but little about practical solutions. Join Brett to see how organizations are taking practical LEAN thinking to the next level by expanding this thinking to include environmental waste. By focusing in on the key Green Wastes and following LEAN and Green process, organizations are able to uncover hidden and costly environmental wastes that have traditionally been overlooked. Brett will help delegates understand how Green (Environmental) wastes impact competitiveness, the bottom line, relationships with customers and employee retention
