LEAN at Zimmer a Very Popular Shannon Chamber Annual Event

The annual LEAN event at Zimmer has grown to become one of the most sought-after events in Shannon Chamber’s annual calendar and this year is no exception. With attendance capped at 70, and bookings filling up fast for the forthcoming half-day seminar, which takes place in the Zimmer facility in Shannon on Tuesday, 25 November, it’s obvious that LEAN is a topic that exercises the minds of key executives everywhere.

This year’s guest speaker, Coca Cola’s operational excellence manager, Gerry Meegan, is a big draw. With over 20 years’ experience in Lean and Six Sigma implementations within the supply chain functions, attendees will get a real insight into how LEAN processes work in two different sectors, orthopaedics and soft drinks.

Shannon Chamber’s chief executive Helen Downes is always amazed at the interest in LEAN among member companies: “Now in its fifth year, this is one of the most highly subscribed events we run; it’s always booked out well in advance of the day. To have a global name such as Zimmer open up its doors annually and share its best practice techniques with the business community is quite extraordinary and we are very grateful to Zimmer’s general manager, Adrian Furey for doing so.

“We’re delighted to have Coca Cola associated with the seminar this year, all thanks to Zimmer’s efforts in encouraging them to participate. Gerry Meegan, a Master of Operational Excellence with Coca Cola promises to be an exceptional speaker. He holds a Master Black Belt in strategic quality management from the University of Limerick and has successfully led lean implementations in manufacturing and more recently, in shared services. Over the last four years, he has taken traditional lean tools and applied them to an office environment with significant financial results.

“His involvement has already attracted national attention with a high number of attendees travelling from Dublin to partake in the seminar,” added Ms Downes.
