lean and green summitSubmissions are now being accepted for presentations at the 2010 Lean and Green Summit. Proposals are invited in the areas of Governance and Management, Operations and Facilities, Design and Process Innovation, Human Resources and Corporate Culture, Marketing and Communications, and Partnerships and Stakeholder Engagement.

The 2010 Lean and Green Summit will be held July 12 – 13, 2010 at the Hilton Savannah DeSoto Hotel in Savannah, GA. The Summit will uniquely bring together the passions and knowledge of advocates of operational excellence who see the implications lean principles have in sustainability, as well as environmental advocates who wish to move industry toward sustainability and want to learn how lean operations can contribute to that goal.

The Summit is a next-generation conference that stands apart from other “green conferences” in the marketplace by involving attendees with a high degree of peer and presenter interaction. Among other things, the Summit will provide attendees with an action plan for cutting costly waste in their companies and teach them ways to apply lean to green concerns that will not only help them save money but also earn them new customers and beat their competitors.

Some of the major presenters at the 2009 Lean and Green Summit were Peter Senge – famous author and business sustainability expert, Rand Waddoups – WalMart’s VP of Sustainability, and Burt Klein – President of PortionPac Chemical Corporation.

Submission Guidelines:

Executives in senior management who have some experience with instituting lean and green processes should consider presenting at this Summit. Since lean and green philosophies are important across a wide spectrum of industries, the organizers encourage presentation proposals from companies operating in diverse industry areas.

Presentations will take the form of case studies, thereby allowing attendees to learn from your real-life experiences. Presentations should fall in one of six areas listed above, and should run about 30 minutes in length. Each presentation will be followed by interactive discussions and Q&A, thus expanding the information flow and idea generation in the group. The venue can handle multiple presentation formats, and content and format can be discussed with Summit coordinators beforehand.

The proposal form can be found here. Completed forms should be emailed to admin@leansummits.com.
